Start and finish: Bad Tabarz - Rennsteig clinicRoute:
Bad Tabarz - Kleiner Inselberg - riding stones - Großer Inselberg - RothenbergwieseToday we were on a small tour with our hiking group in the Thuringian Forest.
We hiked through the rock valley, past the film set for the fairy tale "Das kalte Herz" by Wilhelm Hauff over the border meadow to Inselberg.
We chose our route to the Großer Inselberg over the riding stones (difficult route !!). The riding stones are a special highlight with an insanely distant view z. B. ski jumps from Brotterode (unfortunately not really easy to see in the picture).
From the Grenzwiese (small Inselberg) to the large Inselberg we followed the trail of the Rennsteig.
We arrived at the Berggasthof Stöhr just in time for lunch. Afterwards visit of the ski slope and a modified Honda "Golden Wing".
Our way back led us steeply through the forest. Then completely relaxed over the area monument Rothenbergwiese and Seyfahrtswiese to Bad Tabarz.
On the Rothenberg meadow we were able to observe many insects, marvel at different flowers and even harvest a parasol mushroom.
When we got back to Bad Tabarz, we also filled our stripped-down calories with ice cream 😀 😀 hm, delicious 🙃
Overall, it was a very nice tour that can be hiked with pleasure.
