This tour from Neuhaus am Rennweg down to the Schwarzatal to Saalfeld is particularly suitable for a family excursion. There are numerous rest areas and shelters for breaks along the route and the paths are easy to drive on. The tour starts at the train station in Neuhaus am Rennweg.On easy-to-drive forest paths, it first goes downhill, past Cursdorf and Deesbach. From here the route leads over the Kirchberg and the Fröbelturm. This was built in memory of Friedrich Froebel, the founder of the kindergarten. The tour continues to Oberweißbach. Here you can make a worthwhile stopover and take the beautiful Oberweißbacher Bergbahn to the top and enjoy the view.A steep descent over forest paths finally leads via Sitzendorf to Schwarzburg - past the castle with the oldest and only completely preserved armory collection. Following the Schwarza downstream, you will continue through the Schwarzatal to Bad Blankenburg. At the chrysoprase weir you can linger and take a break. Then the tour takes you along the Saale to Saalfeld.
