Today we start our tour near Steinbach, where “LUTHERS
CAPTURE “200 meters from
today's monument, held on May 4, 1521 for its protection.
“On the way back from Worms, he drove with his friend Nikolaus von Amsdorf and the friar Johann Pezensteiner to Möhra
Steinbacher corridor, up to Eselskopf.
Here he was on the orders of the elector
Frederick the Wise by the
Castle captain of the Wartburg, Kaspar Hans von Berlepsch, and the
Altensteiner castle lord Burkhardt Hund from Wenckheim captured. Amsdorf returned to Möhra and reported everything there. An old beech tree rose at the place of capture. There are still 5 chairs made of their wood, which can be seen in the church in Steinbach. "(... from information board)We hike comfortably right down Steinbach before we go up the wild and romantic “Steinbacher Schleifkotengrund” to the Kallenbacher Quelle and the Rennsteig. At the source you can take a break before we continue on the Rennsteig to the Gerberstein. The Gerberstein is a highlight that you should have visited! We continue to the Schillerbuche on the Glasbachwiese and from there it is to the Luther monument - our starting point is another 1.8 km.
Have fun hiking. 🤩🌳🙋♂️

We have long known that it is very beautiful there and that you are in one of the most beautiful landscape parks in Germany. Many other people still do not know! 😉 So, if you haven't been there yet, you should definitely do so in 2021.
The big round is about 6km long. And please don't leave anything out, everything is worth seeing! Have fun. 😊🤩😍🙋♂️

Enjoyment tour through a wonderful landscape in absolute solitude and in fine weather and the best lighting conditions for taking photos.The Herrenstieg initially goes very steeply uphill before the path runs leisurely on or just below the ridge. Shortly before the B84 you have another magnificent view of the Wartburg because the forest is gone 🙈 before you go up the Brauertal to the Tunnelskopf.
The last section before the Rennsteig is tough and very steep. There are plenty of opportunities to rest, I was all alone on the "Wild Pig" before continuing downhill past the Elfengrotte towards the Sangerwiese / Wartburg. The light was perfect again today to take photos, so it's really fun to pull the trigger again. 😉🤩🤩👀🌳🌳👀

Interesting varied tour with excellent views not only of the Thuringian Forest. Once you have climbed the vineyard, you continue moderately upwards and continue on the ridge path through a spruce forest to the "Wagnershöhe". On the further way to the Frankenstein, the Thuringian Forest is practically at our feet on the left. 👀🤩 Through the Werraauen back to the city, we recommend a small. Round around the castle lake.
Have fun hiking afterwards. 🤩🤩🌳✌️

Is there anything nicer than 🥾? Certainly ... but 🥾 always works✌️
First things first, you have to choose the way to the Falkhaus differently, everything is barricaded below the Falkhof, so I had a lot of trouble getting through. 🤷♂️
From my point of view, one of the most beautiful tours you can go if you want to enjoy the sun in spring. There are many magnificent views, but the one of the Wartburg from Paulinenhöhe / Breitengescheid (367 m above sea level) is unique!
Moderately uphill, continue on the Carolinenweg towards the Herzogseiche and from there towards one of the most beautiful sampfade on the Wine Route. You cannot pass the Drachenstein without taking a look at the Inselsberg. Many highlights are still on this route. Hirschstein, Hochwaldgrotte, Hohe Sonne, Knöpfelsteiche, Elfengrotte and the "Waldhaus Sängerwiese" before the hiking tour in the "Verfluchten Jungfernloch" above the Liliengrund ends a few hundred meters further at the Prinzenteich. At the Waldhaus Sängerwiese you can take a break and almost always get a sausage and a fresh light - at the Prinzenteich at the moment also on the weekend. You should plan for five hours of walking + rest. 🤩🤩🤩👀 🌳🌳 🪨 🪨

Taking full advantage of the good weather gap over the middle of Thuringia today, we went east again. Over the Seeberg near Seebergen to the "Old Observatory" Gotha. An interesting, varied tour through open forest and wonderfully large areas with spring flowers. (Small periwinkle, coltsfoot, forest ringelkraut, hollow larkspur, ivy speedwell, spring Adonis, yellow anemone, bush anemone, wonder violet)The day's destination was the “Old Observatory” in Gotha (352 m above sea level). The landlord of the “Old Observatory” offered fresh light and delicious pan-fried food on the grill. 😋
Unfortunately, there was no more time for the former bunker on the Seeberg, and I don't know if there is still much to see there. 🤔

Inspired by a tour made by Martin last year, today we went to the core mountains of Jena. A wonderful hiking tour in cool but sunny weather. Behind every gnarled black pine a new breathtaking view of Jena or the core mountains with their jagged rocks. The highlights are lined up like on a string of pearls: including copper plate, student slide, mountain slide thieves' crib, fox tower and sanctuary.
Those who like to hike on narrow mule tracks are in the right place in the core mountains around Jena! 🙏 Martin for your template. ✌️🤩😎

Bissel stretch your legs and look after the Easter bunny in Herleshausen 👀. The Herleshäuser design the rabbit trail at Easter 🐣 always particularly beautiful 🤩. The place with its many great half-timbered houses is a feast for the eyes. Then we went back via the train station 🚉 through the Werraauen back to the hiking car park at the Brandenburg ruins. 👋
