Best Hikes to Schwalbenstein (Touringen Stempelstelle Nr. 143)
  • Sebastian

    The impressive rock formation and the view from the cozy shelter make up for the climb in any case. Goethe was also inspired by the distant view and wrote the 4th act of his "Iphigenia", the beginning of which is immortalized on a tablet in the stone.

  • Here not only the view lures. Here one is also very close to the poet-prince. Just like the Great Hermannsteins, the Schwalbenstein is a rock in the Thuringian Forest, which was often visited by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe when he was in Ilmenau. He wrote here on March 19, 1779, the IV Act of Iphigenia. This is indicated by a tablet attached to the rock.

  • The Schwalbenstein on the Goethe trail is a rock in the Thuringian Forest. Here on the 19th of March, 1779, the old master wrote 'the fourth act of his' Iphigenie' 'on a sunny day'.

  • The most romantic place in the Ilm district invites not only to rest, but also to philosophize.

  • Come, stop, rest, enjoy the view. From here it is only a short distance to Gasthof "Schöffenhaus". There can also enjoy the belly.

  • Just like the Great Hermannstein, the Schwalbenstein is a rock in the Thuringian Forest, which Johann-Wolfgang von Goethe liked to visit when he was in Ilmenau. Today there is a small hiking hut on the rock with a view of the Ilm Valley.

  • In addition to hiking, German art, Thuringian history and good culinary breaks in the wonderful "Hohe Warte" restaurant come into their own. A wonderful tour and also highly recommended for young families with small children to undertake a small forest tour from the "Hohe Warte".
