Mountain Biking Highlight
The Hunchback, originally called Klöckler, is a mountain with two rocky outcrops and surrounding block seas as well as a popular vantage point on the Rennsteig in the Wartburg district in the Thuringian Forest. 
Near the 702.5 m above sea level. NHN  high rock group are several inscriptions and monuments: 
The monument of the Ruhla Forestry Institute - originally probably only a banal inscription as a date of a test plant "1813 was planted here thought" - was extended to the initials of some students and is located at the eastern elevation
the founder of this Ruhlaer forestry school, Oberforstrat Gottlob king, was honored with a rock seat on the western elevation - the "royal seat"
The inscription "1813 was planted here" was probably supplemented by the forest students with the addition "for 1871". To the relationship of the two years to each other much was puzzled and speculated. They can not be associated with "patriodic feelings" after the unification of the Reich, since the supplement is already mentioned in 1830 by Julius von Plänckner and 1858 by Carl Grebe.
at the request of the widow of the deceased in the neighboring town of Marienthal educator Friedrich Froebel was already in the 1860s, whose name is carved on a granite stone
a list of names for the Rennsteig club members who fell in the First World War and for Ludwig Hertel, the founder of the Ruhlaer Vereinssektion, who died in 1910, was carved on the western rock group
Another granite stone bears the name of the Rennsteig researcher Elisabeth Streller (1879-1939)
After the southern slope around the mountain peak was covered by dense spruce forest since the GDR era, the hurricane Kyrill left a large-scale ground damage in early 2007.
