February 2, 2021
Can you believe it Today is the final stage of your long-distance hiking adventure. Around 18 kilometers, a lake, an observation tower and a ceremonial gate that marks the end of the Hochrhön premium hiking trail await you. But one by one.Right at the beginning you will come across the Bernshausen Kutte, a lake that owes its circular shape to a geological collapse. Bathing is forbidden here, taking a break and enjoying the idyllic nature by no means. Once in a wide arc around the Stoffelskuppe, you then hike on to the observation tower promised at the beginning.He is enthroned on the summit of the Pless. Reaching it takes a little perseverance. There are benches and tables upstairs to consume any food you may have brought with you. And one more piece of good news is conveyed to you at this point: From here to your destination it's only downhill.It's not far: the well-known saltwater spa Bad Salzungen is located in the Werra Valley at the transition to the Thuringian Forest. In addition to a train station, from which you can start your journey home, you will also find a gate here that marks the end of the Hochrhön premium hiking trail. Be sure to take a photo. Who would have thought that you would one day master such a long-distance hiking trail !?
