    With the RennsteigShuttle, you can travel from Ilmenau to Rennsteig train station on weekends and public holidays. From here you can make great bike rides. For example, it is only a stone's throw to Ilmquelle. Incidentally, there are always events at the station and there is a restaurant.

    More information about the timetables and events can be found at

    There is always a lot to see, especially when driving a few of the historic trains. The restaurant is also recommended.

    A nice place to stay and a good starting point for hiking, skiing and cycling. On weekends and public holidays with train connection to and from Erfurt.
    Here, the sled dog track passes by and the track 1 stands out gastronomically positively from what you can experience on the Rennsteig.
