So that we could feast without a guilty conscience at our meeting, which was planned at short notice, we went on a bike tour beforehand. On quiet streets it went relaxed through nice villages to the high horror. The Kammerforst offered itself as a cozy resting place! 🍅🌭🍻
Apparently we also had the weather on our side and so we went back and forth across the fields comfortably. In between we hit a wind farm - to see the elements on the ground up close is really impressive! 😲
... and then the delicious food! Thank you Adele! 👌👏

Today we set off for the tour on the K 2 at 12 degrees and drizzle in Herbsleben. This can be very nicely combined in Thamsbrück along the Unstrut to a round trip through the idyllic Unstrut valley near Nägelstädt back to the starting point.
The name of the path comes from the combination of Kneipp basins and small railway lines. This little-known trail has so much charm that we have to ride it at least once a year.
The highlights above speak for themselves. The memorials of the battle of 1866 in the wood between Merxleben and Langensalza are a bit hidden, but now they are here in the track.
You can take a break at the Kneipp treading pool in Töttleben or the former train station in Kleinwelsbach. There is delicious ice cream in Thamsbrück and you are always welcome at Dietmar's snack bar in Unstruttalal.
Here the sun came out and after a good refreshment we went on the last section

Except for the section in the "deep valley", the tour takes you on well-paved roads, there are also great sprints and wonderful descents 😄. The highlight was the fairground in Steinbach with a Kneipp pool and seating to rest. Culturally, the Camposanto is to be mentioned in Buttstädt - it must be seen.

so the main routes are actually solid. Sometimes there are also asphalt / paved areas, but most of it is solid forest messenger that is reminiscent of typically wide forest roads. However, from the begging oak it goes a little further on side roads (kilometers 7-9 on the map). These are now likely to be extremely muddy in places. I rode the route with 26 "tires on an old MTB. Basically, it is doable, but there is a risk of slipping. And it will definitely be muddy. This is the highlight of the" forest trail ". by staying on the main roads and driving towards the towns.
