    With Zittau you leave the mountainous landscape and sandstones behind and always walk north on the 13th stage of the Lausitzer Schlange. In addition to wonderfully wide landscapes, the birthplace of poinsettias awaits you in today's destination.Your journey continues at Zittau train station. It is worth looking back shortly after you have left the city, because far away you can see the striking television tower on the Jeschken in good weather. The mountain is the highest elevation in the Jeschkengebirge in Northern Bohemia with a height of just over 1,000 meters. Today you are always on the edge of civilization on broad dirt roads and touch small towns such as Eckartsberg, Oberseifersdorf and Oderwitz. At the Birkmühle east of Oderwitz, a rustic post mill, you can stop for a break with coffee and cake. The path now turns into the forest area with cool streams and then takes you across fields to your day's destination, Herrnhut. Take a little time here for the show workshop and manufacture. Did you know that the very first poinsettias that were hanging over many doors and in numerous windows were created here by a math teacher?If you like to hike a little more, you will find the Herrnhut Sculpture Path just around the corner, which tells you something about local history. By bus you can easily get to Herrnhut from the end with a manageable number of accommodations.
