    And watch out: the local bikers have chosen this tour as one of the best and most beautiful tours in Thuringia! On the round trip around the Hohenwartestausee you can enjoy unique panoramas and exciting trails. With an altitude of around 1,100 meters, the tour is particularly suitable for ambitious amateur bikers who like to challenge themselves. You start at the parking lot in Hohenwarte and first cross the Saale over the impressive dam wall.It continues on single trails and forest paths in the Saale valley to Alterbucht - a popular bathing resort on the beautiful Saale beach. You should definitely have your bathing suit with you! Soon you get to the next highlight of the tour, the moss house with a great view of the reservoir.Following the path in the direction of Wilhelmsdorf, it goes over smooth paths back in the direction of the water to the Portenschmiede campsite. Through the Portengrund you drive uphill to the Bockfelsen, a lookout point made of rugged slate. Here you think you are in the Norwegian fjords - breathtaking!A rapid descent takes you to the Neumannshof campsite. It continues on the most beautiful section of the tour directly above the water to the Linkenmühle. Here you can take a short break and enjoy a huge sundae. And again there is a highlight, because you cross the Saale with the mill ferry.Fortunately, your legs rested briefly on the ferry, because now follows the longest ascent of the tour to the so-called Hohen Leite, which is not for nothing. Your reward follows promptly, because from here you have a magnificent view over Althenroth and Neumannshof. Past the Drachenschwanzhütte, it goes back down to the banks of the Saale to the Hopfenmühle campsite. This is followed by the Hermannsfelsen and the place Neidenberga. You cover the last kilometers on the water to the starting point of the tour on tar.
