    This stage, with 18 kilometers the longest of the SaaleHorizontale, leads you to special natural treasures: In May and June the lush meadows are decorated with orchids and peonies, you wander through beech forests to fall in love with and enjoy views as far as your eye can see. The SaaleHorizontale can be so beguiling! You start at the train station in Porstendorf, cross the Saale and walk towards Golmsdorf. When you arrive in town, follow the signs to Tautenburg and Dornburg.First you reach the tranquil town of Beutnitz. A visit to the Evangelical Church of St. Trinity is worthwhile. Stop for a moment and prepare yourself mentally for the approaching ascent - because from now on it's uphill. On a short detour you climb to the Zietschkuppe. In May / June you will see beautiful peonies and orchids on your way. You continue through a mixed forest with many beeches on a path to the Tautenburg ruins, which you reach after a pleasant descent. In Tautenburg there is also the Thuringia State Observatory and the very instructive Planet Trail. You can find more information about the observatory here: tautenburg.de//ausflugsziel-wanderempfänger/thueringer-landessternwarteBut don't rejoice too early: because soon things will be uphill again. On the Hohen Lehde you can expect a breathtaking view of Neuengönna, Porstendorf and the Saale Valley, which rewards you for all your efforts. Your provisions will of course be particularly tasty here. Later you dive back into the forest and hike on a stony, narrow path with a view of the Saale valley to Jena. From the Sophienterrasse you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Dornburg castles. You now go downhill through a beech forest towards Dorndorf, where you will happily move into your accommodation.
