After a delicious breakfast, you start the second stage with a long climb up to the famous ski resort Oberhof. At the Schmücke weather station at an altitude of 942 meters, you will reach the highest point of the Rennsteig cycle path a short time later. The sun terrace of the rustic Suhler Hütte beckons in the immediate vicinity.You continue via the Rennsteig train station to Frauenwald, where you can immerse yourself in the history of the GDR in the bunker museum. If you feel a hole in your stomach here, I recommend you try the delicious Thuringian dumplings right next door in the Waldhotel Rennsteighöhe restaurant. Well strengthened, the constant ups and downs can now continue.Shortly after you have completed half of today's stage, you will reach the center of the Rennsteig at the Großer Dreiherrenstein. From here you roll on until you arrive in the popular climatic health resort of Masserberg after a long uphill stretch. Here you will find the "Café Daheim" with an extensive range of cakes in one of the old, stylish spa buildings. If you can still stow it somewhere, you can simply take the cake with you to the Eisfelder Ausspanne, which comes shortly after the Werra spring. This beautiful rest area is ideal for gathering energy for the last few kilometers.The end of today's stage is in Neuhaus am Rennweg. The Rennsteighaus is only 300 meters away from the Rennsteig, where you can spend the night cheaply, park your bike safely and, if necessary, carry out repairs.You can find information about the Rennsteighaus in Neuhaus am Rennweg here: neuhaus-am-rennweg.de/verzeichnis/objekt.php?mandat=146157
