    You start at the main train station in Eisenach and roll comfortably the first ten kilometers to the official start of the Rennsteig in Hörschel. Here you get a small pebble from the Werra or from the specially set up bowl to carry it over the Rennsteig and to throw it back into a river at the destination in Blankenstein. This hiking tradition should bring luck and be a guarantee for fond memories.From now on it’s really going uphill. Thanks to the picturesque route, the first section of the route is very entertaining. Again and again you catch glimpses of the imposing Wartburg, where Martin Luther translated the New Testament of the Bible into German.The route leads through extensive mixed and coniferous forests, which are repeatedly interrupted by beautiful mountain meadows. When you arrive at the granite rock on the Glöckner, you have already completed more than half of the stage. Time for a break to enjoy the beautiful view of the Thuringian Forest.On the way you will come across so-called relaxation, where you can rest and recharge your batteries. There are also sources of drinking water at some of these comfortable resting places, such as the Hirschbalz recreation area.One kilometer before the enchanting mountain lake Ebertswiese you will reach your accommodation of the same name. Here you can put your luggage and move into your room, and then end the day at the mountain lake with a dip in the cool water.You can find information about your accommodation here: rennsteig.de/berghotel-ebertswiese
