    It's an old tradition that you don't conquer the Rennsteig completely unencumbered, but weigh yourself down with a stone. Not with just any stone, of course, but with one that you fish out of the Saale or Werra and let it flop into the other river at the destination. Why is that? It's good for karma. And depending on the size of the stone, you can easily control your training effect. Joking aside. It's just tradition, everyone does it. So grab a stone and let's go ;)

    Incidentally, this is not just the start or end of the Rennsteig. The Selbitz once formed the border between West and East Germany.

    This is where the Rennsteig starts, we discovered this spot after the 2018 Mountenbike Tour from Hörschel to Blankenstein.

    It was a great experience with many ups and downs.
