By J.W. Goethe in Ilmenau to J.S. Bach to Arnstadt. Partly very beautiful high-altitude trails with grandiose views of the windows.
After a short, refreshing break in Arnstadt, I went to the districts of Siegelbach and Dosdorf in order to end the beautiful tour with the IOV.

Thanks to the MDR Thuringia for the very good tour description 😊 which, due to the very good signage, is also possible without Komoot.
Start in Bad Tabarz - Zimmerberg refuge - Neuer Weg refuge - Hexenbank - Gickelhahnsprung - Five-armed refuge - Hirschstein - Red Tower - Aschenbergstein. From here the MDR hiking trail goes to Bad Tabarz. I added to my tour and walked over the bear quarry ditch at the Tempelchen-Lauchagrund to the oven holes and through the rock valley. I really wanted to see the location of the cold heart.
A very nice tour 😊

Start of today's last tour at the Schlegeisspeicher dam. From there the route went through the beautiful Pfitscher valley past waterfalls, glaciers and moraines. Crossing the border between Austria and Italy was today's highlight. A stop at the Pfitscher Joch Hut is only a few meters away. The first Italian meal tasted excellent after the ascent.
Then descend to Stein and take the bus to Sterzing.
Overall, a very nice tour.

Today's tour, which started in Hochfügen, ran through the Zillertal to the Rastkogelhütte - to the Kreuzjoch summit and on on a very beautiful, challenging summit path to other summits such as the Rauhenkopf and Arbiskopf.
Surefootedness is a minimum for ascent and descent.
Contrary to the forecasts, the weather was really good, sun and a fresh breeze that made the ascent pleasant.
From Melchhofen we went to Mayerhofen by bus and train. 😊

In the morning it was foggy from the hotel to the Spieljochbahn [unfortunately I forgot to turn off Komoot in the cable car, so I have to deduct part of the altitude difference 🤦♀️]
Once at the top, a very beautiful high-altitude hiking trail leads to Hochfügen.
However, it took until noon for the sun to fight its way through the thick clouds. From the afternoon finally sunshine at a pleasant temperature.
