    Today, the last stage of the four-day bike tour is on the Ilm Valley Cycle Route. It is 37 kilometers long and takes you from Weimar to the mouth of the Ilm to Großheringen. From Weimar you drive under the more than 130-year-old six-arch bridge that spans the Ilm Valley, past romantic villages and picturesque castles. On the way on the Ilm Valley Cycle Path, you will always have nice opportunities for rest, whether at a rest stop or the places along the way, with restaurants and cafes invite you to linger.For example, the oil mill in Eberstedt offers such a break, because not only can you eat well there, but you can also experience a lot of different activities. Among other things, you can fish on the grounds, watch goats in the animal enclosure or visit the mill. From Eberstedt you then cycle downhill over Bad Sulza along the Ilm, which is lined with beautiful vineyards, to its mouth in Großheringen. Here you can see from an old wooden bridge, how the Ilm unites with the Saale after more than 120 kilometers.In Großheringen you have the opportunity to continue your cycle tour either on the Saale Cycle Path or to take the train from the nearby train station to return home. Before doing so, however, it is advisable to stop off in one of the wineries in Großheringen to end the beautiful bike tour on the Ilmtal Cycle Path.

    2 kilometers further in Kaatschen is the winery tooth. Highly recommended and only a stone's throw away. There is good food and good wine right on the Saale.
