    A moor for dry feet: The Schützenbergmoor near Oberhof is the only high moor educational trail in Thuringia. On a 230 meter long, barrier-free footbridge you can discover the five-hectare high moor and its rare flora and fauna.The bog is 2,500 years old and two and a half meters thick. It grows by a millimeter every year - provided, of course, that the moor does not have to withstand extremely long periods of drought. During a walk you can discover cranberries, bogberries and crowberries as well as the round-leaved sundew.The moor lies at an altitude of 890 meters. The area has around 180 days of fog. If you like it a little mystical, the Schützenbergmoor is the right place on a day like this. In order for it to maintain its high level of moisture, the moor needs five degrees as an annual mean temperature and 1,200 millimeters of precipitation per year. Conversely, this means that global warming can also have an impact here.Your hike starts in Oberhof, which is also worth a stroll through town. Here you will discover many great houses clad with slate shingles that unfold their very own charm. Continue on the Rennsteig to the Schützenbergmoor, which you can explore on the footbridge.For a freshly tapped water, you make a stop at the violet fountain on the way back. On the way back, it is worth stopping at the Thüringer Hütte: why not try a Rostbratwurst in the bread roll. Leeeecker!
