    Nice starting point for hikes and rustic resting place to stop. On weekends and public holidays, the train station is not just a museum, but from Erfurt, via Arnstadt, Ilmenau, the end point for train travelers in the Thuringian Forest.

    The station was built in 1904, the reception building dates from 1906. Between 1913 and 1965 there was a small train to Frauenwald, which began at the station Rennsteig (Wikipedia).
