This gorge is located in the northeast of the island, it is really worth seeing. The special thing is, this gorge is green even in summer and leads partly water. The absolute highlight is exactly in the middle of the hike, a 20-meter-high waterfall in a paradise-like place. Yes, there are even fig trees ...

Landscape: 4 of 5 points, tends to 5
Difficulty: medium, no difficulties
Time: I needed just under 5 hours without a break
Conclusion: I will repeat this hike, but the next time with bathing suits ...A very nice hike around the most beautiful lake of the Leipziger New Seenland.
The hike starts at the parking lot above the canoe park. The parking fees are up to 5 hours just € 3, which is acceptable I think. I would advise you to take some provisions, on the route I have made, there is no possibility for a snack. Who deviates from the tour can of course make that possible.
What I really liked, there were relatively few people on the road, of course, on the well-developed bike paths then cyclists. Otherwise an absolute highlight in Central Germany, partly turquoise blue water with small bays and sandy beaches. Do not you think that there is something like that at Leipzig and Halle ...

Today I would like to recommend a really nice circular walk around a part of the Hohenwarte dam. The starting point is the sawmill at Hotel Linkenmühle, where you can park your car. I decided first to make the ferry crossing with the car ferry, then it goes along the right bank along the dam in the direction of Ziegenrück. As a small feature I would like to recommend the old railway tunnel, which is (see highlight) but not as abandoned as it looks. So be careful for all walkers who want to go through it. In Ziegenrück a detour to the frog fountain is worth seeing, it exists for many decades. Continue from Ziegenrück towards Fernsicht. Then it goes over the Teufelskanzel to the "Conrod-Kraftwerk" viewpoint. Please note on the map this "detour". The last section leads over the campground Linkenmühle again Sawmill, our starting point.I highly recommend the hike, I was positively surprised by this tour. Fitness level would take on medium difficulty, an increase after goat, otherwise rather easy. Length with all detours is just 19 kilometers.

Nice hike. The difficulty level is "medium" but very good for hiking. Beautiful passages and views alternate, the landscape is breathtaking throughout. If you left the "cow barn" behind you it will be a bit "quieter" ...Small note still to the starting point. Please do not arrive too late, the parking (estimated at a maximum of 6 on the street) are limited. The entrance to the dirt road is unfavorable it can be blocked by a lockable device.
