    The island mountain near Bad Tabarz is a kind of sacred ground for mountain bike downhill riders. Because here took place 25 years ago (as of 2018) the first downhill race in Germany. Although a bit different than we know it today - a typical death-descent downhill track from that time would probably no longer worry even a marathon bikers worry lines on the forehead. But at that time it was blatant, what started up here on Inselsberg and today can be driven down to Bad Tabarz as a fun trail. By the way: There is still a downhill race here, but thanks to the new route, it has a lot to offer.

    A magnificent view into the distance of the Thuringian countryside. The climb is worth it.

    Is just the island mountain .... In fine weather, a wonderful view. Delicious food and a rewarding beer / Radler. The only drawback ..... the construction site or outdoor facilities up there could be completed so slowly. That's not nice to look at.

    The Big Island Mountain - south of the Rennsteig is "Big Island Mountain" the more common spelling - is with an altitude of 916.5 m above sea level. NHN [1] a prominent, wooded and much visited mountain of the Thuringian forest in the Thuringian counties Gotha and Schmalkalden-Meiningen.
    The mountain is the highest of the northwestern half of the Middle Thuringian Forest and after the Great Beerberg (982.9 m), the Schneekopf (978 m) and the Great Finsterberg (944.1 m) the fourth highest (independent) mountain of Thuringia. It is clearly visible as a landmark from the north and west within a radius of about 30 to 50 kilometers. For more than 1000 years he has been marking historical boundaries - currently between the district of Gotha and the district of Schmalkalden-Meiningen.
