    With the eighth stage you reach the highest point of the Lusatian highlands. But not only that, you are literally going through “hell” - but admittedly an absolutely beautiful one.The first six kilometers of the day take you on gentle hills to the edge of the forest. The forest area surrounds the highest point in the Lusatian highlands, the Valtenberg. After you are immersed in the forest, the path climbs properly. The task now is to overcome around 250 meters of altitude. Once at 587 meters, the mountain hut and the lookout tower are two great rewards for the strenuous ascent. From the tower you have a great view to the Lusatian Mountains, which connects to the Lusatian Mountains.Now you descend down to "hell". The valley between Weifaer Höhe and the opposite mountains near Wehrsdorf collects the annual rivulets of snowmelt from the mountains until they become the river “forest water”.Shortly before your stage goal in Wilthen you can make a detour to the lovingly designed Knobelhütte, then you go over the railroad tracks to the famous Weinbrenner town of Wilthen, where spirits have been distilled since 1842. The best known product is probably the gold crown. You can end your long-distance hike or get back on the train here.
