Tips

  • Onno Ringering

    Has the charm of a war memorial, only with eternal water instead of an eternal flame.

    The root path alone from the Weidmannsheil refuge to the source is always beautiful :-) And then of course yesterday's refreshment at 32 degrees 🙋‍♂️

    The Schwarza rises near Scheibe-Alsbach at an altitude of 717 m above sea level. NN. The water rises from a great depth at a crack between red sandstone and slate with a constant temperature of 6 degrees Celsius to the daylight. It was framed in 1855. There is plenty of idyllic seating next to the source. In winter, the water even feels warm when the outside temperature drops below 0 degrees.

    A beautiful root path then leads from the Weidmannsheil refuge to the end. And yesterday at 32 degrees the spring was of course wonderfully refreshing 🥂🦊

    Wildromantisch in deep forest location, without tourist hype. This has rarity in D today.

    Good hut with plenty of bubbling Schwarza spring in front of the door.

    The Schwarza spring rises 4 kilometers from Neuhaus am Rennweg and 250 m from the Rennsteig, at an altitude of 717 m. The spring water, which rises from a crack between slate and red sandstone, always has a constant temperature of around 6 degrees Celsius both in midsummer and in winter, which is often icy here.

    The spring was set in in 1855. In the meantime, however, the spring has looked for another way up and rises about 2m away from the source. In the further course, she looks for her own way (Fig. 4). In spring, a stream already flows past the Schwarzaquellhütte above the Schwarza spring.

    After 300 m the Schwarza joins the Habichtsbach, which at the confluence has already covered twice as much distance from its source.

    In the further course the Schwarza flows through the partially deeply cut Schwarzatal until it flows into the Saale after 53 kilometers in the Rudolstadt district of Schwarza. After more than 200 kilometers, the Saale flows into the Elbe at Barby. This makes the Schwarza part of the Elbe's catchment area, as does the previous "River Landscape of the Year", the Havel.

    The catchment area of the Schwarza and its tributaries covers a total of 507 square kilometers. The Schwarza has many natural stretches of water.

    The Schwarzaquelle is an idyllic place in the middle of the forest that invites you to stop for a break.

    The river has its source near Scheibe-Alsbach, 250 meters northwest of the Rennsteig, at an altitude of 717 m above sea level. NN. The water of the Schwarza spring rises from a great depth to the daylight at a crack between red sandstone and slate at a constant temperature of 6 degrees Celsius. It was framed in 1855.
