Erik went for a hike.
June 26, 2021
On my tour through the Nohra Landscape Park from June 21st. this year I often had the Ettersberg in view. Already then I had the idea to do a lap there too. Thought and done.After a few meters you enter the Prinzenschneise nature reserve. On the way to Ettersburg, shortly before Kleinobringen, you pass 4 ponds of different sizes, announced by loud frog concerts. Arrived in Ettersburg, it goes up to the castle of the same name with its park, which this year counts as one of the 25 BUGA external locations. For my further way to the concentration camp memorial, I decided on the route through the castle park to the Jagdstern and the time lane. On the time lane, I then took the opportunity to cross the forest cemetery. Carefully, it goes over the historic area of the former Buchenwald concentration camp. It then continues, past the remains of the end point of the Buchenwald Railway, to the memorial and the bell tower. From here you have a beautiful distant view of the Weimarer Land. After a short stretch on the so-called Blutstraße, you continue on the memorial path, the former embankment of the Buchenwald Railway, past the obelisk and back to the Prinzenschneise NSG. All in all, a nice round in the best hiking weather with a lot of nature, culture and history.
