Forest in the direction of Tettau to "Kalte Küche" at Spechtsbrunn and back ...Start & finish: Badstr. 2, leisure center, Steinbach am WaldRoute: From Steinbach a. Forest on the Rennsteig cycle path in the direction of Tettau to "Kalte Küche" near Spechtsbrunn and back. (*)Description of the route: From Steinbach am Wald along the state road, the Rennsteig bike path runs in the direction of Tettau. Several small, gentle climbs have to be mastered. The goal and turning point of the tour is the “cold kitchen” in Thuringia. Crossroads just before the former German-German border. The former trade route from Nuremberg to Leipzig across the mountains was mentioned as early as the 9th century. There is a small stop here as well as the information center of the Thuringian Forest, Thuringian Slate Mountains / Obere Saale and Franconian Forest nature parks. From here return to Steinbach a. Forest on the same route. (*)Special features & sights: Leisure center Steinbach a. Forest, "Red Tower", highland cattle Tettau, Ölschnitzsee Windheim (branch 2.5 km there and back), detour to the European Flacon Glass Museum and to the tropical house Klein-Eden in Kleintettau possible (back steep climb!)(*) All tours with the designation KC are suggestions and are not specially marked outside on site. They mainly run on generally signposted bike paths! Please therefore note the specified route in the tour description)
