Living with a view of the Sonnenberge

West Jena

The popular Westviertel district impresses with its delightful mixture of old villas, large gardens and attractive townhouses. Here you can live close to nature but still be only a short distance from the city centre.

It only takes a few minutes along the Leutra to reach the city centre with its varied cultural and leisure facilities. The good transport connections, proximity to schools and nurseries, sports pitches and playgrounds are appreciated by many families.

This popular district’s surrounding area is also a special attraction. The Mühltal area between Sonnenberge and the Jena Forest offers many opportunities for excursions. Ramblers certainly get their money’s worth in this forest with its well signposted hiking routes, secluded rest areas and beautifully located restaurant. On the other side of the valley, the Sonnenberge attracts people with its wonderful views.

Advantages of the area

  • very good, family-friendly area
  • close to the city and nature
  • very good infrastructure
  • nearby sports ground and playground, school and nursery
  • charming scenic surroundings with good leisure facilities
