Mittlere Kernberghorizontale

Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    The middle Kernberghorizontale is a relatively flat, narrow trail on the middle slope of the Kernberge. A bit of a head for heights and kick should be, even if it is not really dangerous or difficult. The views are terrific. Coming from Jena, there are many great views with banks to rest. The student slide is a big stone slide, the thieving crib a not yet completed landslide. Towards the end comes a short section, where it drops a little steeper. At the end of the cool Fürstenbrunnen lures with picnic benches.
    The Saale-Horizontale around Jena is actually completely recommended, but this section is particularly beautiful, because of the dry hillside it almost has Mediterranean flair.
    On weekends and public holidays is expected with "oncoming traffic" ;-)

    The slopes are steep and when the sun is shining, it gets damn warm.

    There are really crazy people who ride their bikes for a long time ...

    The "horizontal" at the Kernbergen belong to the most beautiful hiking sections around Jena. When the weather is fine, it's fantastic to be careful when the weather is humid due to the sometimes steep slopes.
    The trails are sometimes very narrow, so that you have to push against the slope in oncoming traffic.

    Beautiful section of the horizon with phenomenal views and great paths along the pines and limestone cliffs.
    With good eyes you will discover many small animals and rare plants.
    Recommended all year round.
