On this tour you will explore the idyllic Schwarzatal with delightful mountain and valley trips, which add up through a rapid up and down of 1,000 meters of altitude. You start in Saalfeld and drive along the Saale to Schwarza and via Bad Blankenburg into the Schwarzatal. And off you go: steeply uphill in the direction of Silberberg, past the Griesbachfelsen, the Teufelstreppe and the Fürstenstand. Through the villages of Böhlplatten and Cordobang you finally get to Schwarzburg via the Trippstein. On the way you can always enjoy great views of the Schwarzatal. And now another highlight is waiting for you: The armory of Schloss Schwarzburg shows the oldest and only completely preserved princely armory collection in Germany. An armory, now an arsenal, is a place where weapons and military equipment were stored and repaired. You will find a special highlight right on the Schwarza, because here you will find a great swing with which you can fly over the water. Here you can take a deep breath and gather strength for the next ascent. Because now the tour goes uphill again, then over wide forest paths past the Mooshäuschen to Dittersdorfer Höhe with a wonderful panorama. Congratulations, you have reached the highest point of your tour. Now go back to the Schwarzatal on wide forest roads and forest paths until you reach the Eberstein hunting lodge. What follows is a great single trail, over which you drive back to Bad Blankenburg in full flow. Take a look at the chrysoprase weir on the Schwarza - an impressive structure! From there it goes over the Kupferstraße back to the starting point of your tour.
