    Orchids as far as the eye can see and a romantic village idyll - this hike welcomes you with a lot of lovely scenery and great views. You start in Ammerbach and walk out of town. Soon you will reach a leisurely hiking trail above a meadow, from where you can enjoy views of Ammerbach and the Lämmerberg.Then you get to the pretty little village Nennsdorf, which you leave immediately towards nature. Your path winds gently uphill past pine trees and through clearings onto the plateau, which rewards you with great views. It continues through mixed forest, wide meadows, fields and orchards until you reach the Leutratal and climb steadily downhill through the forest. Orchids bloom on the limestone slopes and on the meadows in early summer - a uniquely beautiful sight. But otherwise you can also hike here in wonderful nature.The autobahn, which now runs through a tunnel, once ran along the small town of Leutra. Nature can regain its place at this point and it does so with great success. The idyll here is simply overwhelming. Above Leutra, a path turns half-left and climbs steadily uphill towards Jagdberg. Once at the top you can see the imposing Leuchtenburg in the distance. On the ridge, the path turns left towards Göschwitz to your destination. You can now comfortably return home by train and look back on nine exciting and relaxing days on the SaaleHorizontale.
