    The highest (970 m) and at the same time one of the most beautiful viewpoints directly on the Rennsteig, above the town of Suhl, where the Rennsteig reaches its highest point (973 m), bears the name of the "inventor" of the Rennsteig hike. The path runs here on the south side of the Großer Beerberges just below the summit past, the highest in the Thuringian Forest (982 m), which in turn has no significant views to offer, but at least as a protected bog biotope of high value.(Source:

    Here it is good to rest but you will miss the necessary peace, just hike a little further and enjoy only the far-sightedness
