Please check local regulations for: Großer Inselsberg
From the highest point of the western Thuringian Forest and the highest point of the Rennsteig you have a fantastic view of the surrounding area. From the 21 meter high observation tower you can see up to a hundred kilometers into the country.
There is also an inn up here and thanks to the nearby parking lot, people who are not mobile or who want to hike far can enjoy the view. But that also ensures that it can get crowded here.

Great views, great panoramic views, many opportunities to continue hiking, downhill slope with lift provided the weather. The lookout tower is also class, is even registry office. However, the name is not correct: It is called either Inselsberg tower or Inselberg tower, depending on which side of the Rennsteig you grew up.

The good thing is, if you want to enjoy with older or handicapped people the view, so this is also possible, because you almost to the very top of the. Parking is allowed.
The parking lot is even free of charge.
It is then for these persons also a moment of bliss to have come a little closer to heaven in this way.

Very nice up here. The food is also very good and there is plenty of choice for a great price. We only found the price for the observation tower a bit excessive. You can also just walk back and forth on the site and enjoy the beautiful view in all directions. Best to visit during the week, crowded on weekends.
