    This stage is the shortest at just under ten kilometers, but the most exciting section is definitely waiting for you today. On narrow paths there is a short steep uphill climb, because the Teufelsmauer stretches from the outskirts of Blankenburg to the east and you follow this ridge with its bizarre sandstone rock formations for the first few kilometers.The paths here are partly stony and narrow, but more demanding passages are usually secured with railings and ladders. However, a little surefootedness and sturdy shoes make sense.The path first leads past the grandmother and grandfather - two cliffs that protrude over the surrounding deciduous forest and offer a grandiose view of the surrounding area. On the Südhangweg you follow the Teufelsmauer towards Timmenrode. Shortly before the place, the Hamburg coat of arms rises up, another sandstone cliff that is visible from afar and is well suited for a break. You can even find picnic benches here.From Timmenrode you follow field and forest paths to Thale, with views of the Teufelsmauer again and again. Today's destination is Wendhusen Abbey. The oldest monastery complex in what is now Saxony-Anhalt dates back to the 9th century and houses a museum and a café. There are various accommodations and restaurants in Thale and if you feel like it, you can make a detour to the impressive, steep Bodetal.
