Alternative starting point: fairy grottoesIn the first 5km 300Hm have to be overcome. When you arrive at Saalfeld Höhe, you cycle along the ridge. From Reichmannsdorf you have a fantastic view of Bavaria and the Rennsteig.Arrived in the center of Lichte, you drive on the Geiersthal, which leads to the Leibis dam. The Lichte river flows into the wild and romantic Schwarzatal. With a few extra kilometers you can visit the Oberweißbacher Bergbahn at the Sitzendorf-Unterweißbach junction.If you hear the place name "Engerwissbsch", it is Unterweißbach.Schloss Schwarzburg is located further along the Schwarza in a picturesque landscape. Before the destruction in 1940, this was one of the most beautiful baroque castles.From here you can expect 10km of pure nature until you arrive in the triangle of towns on the Saalebogen.
