The start of the round is a small unpaved parking lot on the outskirts of Buchfart to Oettern. From there it goes on the Ilm Valley Cycle Path past the camping site "Im Grünen" to Oettern. After we have crossed the Ilm there, we continue on the Thuringian Three-Tower Path through the small town of Köttendorf to the Hainturm. A little further we turn into the Belvedere Palace Park. The extensive park with its castle south of Weimar is one of the outdoor locations of this year's BUGA. Continue on the Thuringian three-tower path past Vollersroda to the Balsamine forest inn. Now it goes down into the Ilm valley back to Buchfart. The Ilm is crossed one more time via a listed wooden bridge. The Pfeiffers mill is also located here. There is also an inviting opportunity to rest directly on the Ilm with a view of the weir and the watermill. One street further there is a mill shop with a restaurant that tempts you with homemade Thuringian sheet cakes based on grandma's recipe. So if you haven't already strengthened your culinary skills with the Balsamine, you can catch up on it here.
