    In front of you is the longest and hilly stage on the Thuringian town chain, but also the most beautiful in terms of landscape. The tour also begins in a paradisiacal way. The "Jenaer Paradies" is a large park near the center of the city directly on the river Saale. You drive through the park, follow the Saale and later the Roda.Stadtroda offers itself for a small coffee break. There is an old monastery and a beautiful castle and you can fortify yourself in a café, because now it is hilly. There, where the Zeitz flows into the Roda, lies the hammer mill. The first of countless mills that are on your way.In Zeitzgrund the beautiful bike path leads through the shady forest. The path meanders along the rushing creek that has made many mills run for centuries. Some mills are now restored and accommodate, for example, a hotel or a restaurant.In Bad Klosterlausnitz you have reached the peak of your bike ride. From here it is almost only downhill. If you want to give your calves a little cooling after the effort, you can do that in the Kneipp spa in the spa park.A few minutes later you reach the next wild and romantic valley, the Mühltal. The name is program, because in Mühltal you will find many great mills as in Zeitzgrund. In the last mill, the Robertsmühle, some mills stand as a miniature edition in the garden.The way is flat, but not less beautiful. You follow the white magpie to Gera. This stage destination also welcomes you with a variety of highlights such as the castle, the orangery or the market square. Especially idyllic are the district Gries and the Elsterauen opposite.
