    A wonderful hiking destination that is really different but fantastic in every season and in every weather condition! It's especially great to look at after it rains.

    With snow you can see nothing except the small bridges. We will definitely be back in the spring!

    So many (well developed) Moore does not exist in Germany and in today's foggy autumn weather it was especially nice. Would have been a great backdrop for a fairy tale or scary movie.

    The "Schützenbergmoor" nature reserve was made accessible in 2012 with a path made of wooden planks. You can marvel at rare, typical moorland plants. With a lot of luck, the fog will clear and you will have a clear view of the entirety of the raised bog. This has made it a highlight for young and old.

    A short footbridge leads through the Schützenbergmoor. A bench invites you to enjoy the fantastic place, nature and tranquility.
    We recommend!

    The only high moor nature trail in Thuringia has been reopened in the Schützenberg moor near Oberhof. The 230 meter long barrier-free footbridge enables visitors to experience the rare flora and fauna of the approx. 5 hectare high moor up close.

    On the 2,500 year old and two and a half meters thick bog, which grows by one millimeter every year, you will find moss, bogus and crowberries as well as the round-leaved sundew.

    Only the low annual mean temperature of 5 ° C and the high amount of precipitation of over 1,200 mm per year create this special habitat with its unique flora and fauna. These facts should be kept in mind when walking along the moor walkway. New signage on the path draws visitors' attention to these peculiarities.

    In the Schützenbergmoor, at an altitude of 890 m above sea level, there are an average of 180 foggy days a year. The mystical atmosphere of the moor is unique, especially in spring and autumn, when thick clouds of fog are forming.

    Facts about the Schützenbergmoor:

    was designated as a nature reserve in 1967 on an area of 5 hectares

    The boardwalks are slippery when wet, but you don't have to hold a race. Otherwise pure nature
