The well-signposted Goethe hiking trail leads from the Amtshaus in Ilmenau to the Goerhehaus in Stützerbach. However, we walked the path in the opposite direction and modified the beginning and end a bit to use the Rennsteig shuttle for the way back.
So we started at the Stützerbach station, where we walked through the small Rabental to the Auerhahn. From here we followed the Goethe hiking trail. The end of the hike for us was the Ilmenau Bad train station. On the way you pass many picturesque places, such as the Finsteren Loch or the Kickelhahn, and there is some historical information about the waypoints.translated by•View Original
