Breathe wideDeep forests, bright clearings, plateaus with surprising views: hiking in the Franconian Forest opens up unexpected horizons for the eyes and soul! In the face of the greatness of nature, our everyday fears and worries become void and small. We breathe space and find ourselves.On our circular route "Steinbacher Lebenslinien" you will experience two very different forms of expanse: vast forests and almost treeless plateaus that reveal a view into the distance. The importance of the forest for life in the Rennsteig region should not be underestimated!Most people are well aware that money was made by rafting the trunks into wood-poor regions. But did you know that spruce resin was used to make pitch, printing ink, varnish, glue, celluloid and linoleum? Or that tanners made the leather durable with extracts from the spruce bark? On the forest adventure path you have the chance to learn all of this:He accompanies you on part of the way and introduces you to the various livelihoods on the Rennsteig in an entertaining way. There is also a nature trail along the way, very close to the idyllic leisure lake fed by the Ölschnitz. Leaving the expanse of the forest, we enjoy a panoramic view of the surroundings on the Windheimer Höhe. A fresh breeze is blowing around our noses.
