    1. Apollo831

      Diese Tour ist aus zwei Zwangsbedingungen erwachsen: Ich wollte unbedingt den guten Tag nutzen und auf keinen Fall im Lockdown der umliegenden Landkreise irgendwohin fahren müssen. Also musste eine Tour entworfen werden, die im Münchner Umland mit dem örtlichen Nahverkehr erreicht werden kann und wenigstens etwas Natur und Herausforderung zeigt.Mit der S2 erreiche ich Karlsfeld um ca. 08:30 Uhr und bin zunächst von der künstlerischen Gestaltung des Bahnhofs begeistert. Ebenso, dass kaum Graffiti-“Künstler“ das Werk
      „aufzubessern“ versucht haben.
      Als erste echte Wandermaßnahme wird allerdings meine geplante Würm-Überquerung kurzfristig abgesagt wegen Baustelle – also folgen wir brav der Umleitung. Über die malerisch strömende Würm führen hier zahlreiche kleine Brücken, also alles kein Problem. Nach wenigen Metern erreicht man den Eichinger Weiher, der zwar in der Herbstsonne schön anzuschauen ist, aber sonst eher unscheinbar wirkt.
      Dann bekomme ich das Highlight des Tages zu sehen: ein EISVOGEL, hier in München! Leider gelingt kein Bild aus der Nähe, da der kleine blaue Düsenjet schnell Reißaus nimmt, wenn sich irgendwo ein Mensch bewegt und von denen bewegen sich leider am nahegelegenen Rehgehege zu viele.
      Der Weg folgt durch offenes Ackergelände und führt mich alsbald zum Karlsbader See. Der ist wirklich gut besucht, nicht nur von Spaziergängern, sondern vor allem von Gänsen. Die scharen sich auf dem Wasser und an den Liegewiesen und unterhalten sich angeregt laut. Dieser Geräuschpegel verfolgt mich entlang der Uferpromenade bis hinauf auf den „Berg“. Am Schallweiher warten ein paar hinterhältige und schadenfrohe Stockenten im absolut stillen Wasser, bis ein Fotograf sich bereitmacht, um genau dann panisch ins Wasser zu planschen, wenn man einen guten Blickpunkt gefunden hat – aber das stört wenig, der tiefblaue Himmel spiegelt sich dennoch kontraststark vor den gold- leuchtenden Herbstbäumen. Eine schöne Ecke und sicher auch im Sommer einen Besuch wert, das Wasser ist jedenfalls einladend klar überall und es gibt Grillplätze und Liegewiesen mit reichlich Platz.
      Ich folge für einige Zeit dem Moosgraben, über den der ansässige Nachwuchs schon kleine Brückchen gebaut hat, die aber leider nur in einen unpassierbaren Acker führen, bevor die Renaturierung ihren Zauber entfaltet. Der Moosgraben ist ein glasklarer Bachlauf, der seinen Namen scheinbar zu Unrecht geerbt hat. Im Schwarzhölz verlasse ich den Moosgraben und besteige einen kleine Anhöhe, da dort ein Aussichtspunkt verzeichnet ist. Die Aussicht scheint aber mit den Jahren verwachsen zu sein, man kann nur lückenhaft die Ferne vermuten.
      Weiter geht’s über offenes und unscheinbares Gelände bis zur Regatta. Die Regatta Anlage ist erstaunlich retro-futuristisch. So sah also 1972 die Zukunft aus! Irgendwie ist es schon interessant und wirklich imposant. Und auch gut besucht – ist doch übermorgen Lockdown überall.
      Ich mache hier auf der alten Nordtribüne ein Teepäuschen in der Sonne und genieße, dass sich die Ruderer von ihren Coaches anschreien lassen und dabei schuften dürfen während ich lenze. Heile Welt.
      Hinter der Haupttribüne passiere ich einen kleinen Beachfussballplatz (wirklich), dann komme ich zum wesentlich ruhigeren Regattasee und weiter über die bereits leer geernteten Felder. Ich begleite den Schwebelbach bis ich wieder den Würmkanal erreiche. Überall bringt der Herbst seine letzten Kräfte auf, um sich farbenfroh und einladend zu präsentieren. Mein Weg führt nun aber unter der A93 hindurch nach Oberschleißheim. Die Wege werden zunehmend matschig.
      Am Schloss angekommen werde ich von Sonne und Touristen überrannt. Die Bauten des Neuen, wie des Alten Schlosses sind imposant und farbenfroh. Die Kaskade und die Brunnen sind leider schon geleert und schauen daher etwas trostlos aus. Die Herbstfarben entfalten noch mal ihren vollen Charme am Mittelgraben hin zum Schloss Lustheim. In einer entlegenen Seitenanlage mache ich Mittagspause unter Platanen und genieße die unerwartete Ruhe und die Herbstsonne. Als ich die Schlossanlage verlassen will überrascht mich eine schick kostümierte Jagdgesellschaft zu Pferde mit einer ganzen Rotte Jagdhunden und Horngebläse. Diese Attraktion reitet im Schloss auf und ab, scheinbar zur Belustigung der Besucher.
      Ich verlasse den Schlosspark nach Süden durch einen angrenzenden Wald und dann über die Oberschleißheimer Heide am Flugplatz. Die Gegend ist nutzungsbedingt wenig abwechslungsreich bis ins Hartelholz. Hier hat der Herbst schon ein fortgeschritteneres Stadium angenommen, die jungen Buchen, Birken und Ahorne stehen zu dicht aufeinander, daher bekommen sie weniger Licht und haben schon ihr gesamten Blattwerk abgeworfen. Die Wege sind morastig und schwergängig.
      Auf der Panzerwiese eröffnet sich schon der Blick zu Allianz Arena, dort ist der Zielpunkt. Mein Weg führt mich vorbei am Campus des FC Bayern und letztlich durch die malerische Fröttmaninger Heide. Dieser kleine Flecken Natur ist leider auch ungewohnt gut besucht und schnell erkenne ich, wo viele Menschen sich begegnen, vergessen sie ihre Manieren. Hier liegt viel Müll im edm Gelände, das sonst wirklich zu einem Spaziergang einlädt. Optisch ist die Heide ein Hingucker, mit ihren kleinen Hainen und dem sanft hügeligen Grasland.
      Dann erreiche ich den erstaunlich sauberen und scheinbar frisch renovierten Fröttmaninger U-Bahnhof. Noch mal der Blick auf die Allianz Arena, dann steige ich die nächste U-Bahn. Es ist 15:30 Uhr – guter Schnitt, toller Tag, bestes Wetter und eine unerwartet schöne Strecke durch die Natur, so nah an den Toren Münchens.

      Wonderful autumn hike. Good to slightly muddy paths. There is something for everyone. You should definitely have sturdy hiking shoes. Also a shoe brush after the hike. We had a great lunch in Leienfels in the restaurant "Burgruine". The salad was freshly dressed including homemade bacon cubes. Dumplings were freshly cooked as well, although lunch was only available until 2:00 p.m. and we didn't arrive until 2:15 p.m. A great tour.

      This is the third day of a three-day Rennsteig crossing from Saalfeld a. d. Saale to Neustadt b. Coburg (eff. Rödental).
      Day 1: komoot.de/tour/266777660
      Day 2.1: komoot.de/tour/266785671
      Day 2.2: komoot.de/tour/267151336
      Day 3.1: komoot.de/tour/267150950
      With enough time in our luggage, we spontaneously say goodbye to Neustadt. Contrary to the plan to wait for our train here, we move on to hike to another train station in Mönchröden and get on our train home there.
      Unfortunately, our way leads through a less pretty industrial area, before we accompany the Röden, past the sewage treatment plant and the Sauer GmbH for plastics, into the idyllic floodplains. We follow the Röden for a while until it meets the busy B4.
      Here we turn off and climb the Deutersberg. The ascent leads through fields and offers another wonderful view back, past the Muppberg, to the southern border of the Thuringian Forest. Then there is a narrow, very muddy ascent through a young beech forest before we reach a rest area on Deutersberg and make plans for a last stop there. We want to go to Mönchrödener Klosterschenke "the schnitzel specialist".
      Arrived in Mönchröden we pass an imposing parish. The road map suggests that there was even a monastery here. We are now all the more looking forward to feasting in the good monastic tradition here near the former monastery and celebrating our last common beer. It should be a successful, rounded conclusion.
      Then we are bitterly disappointed: The Klosterschenke inn closed its doors for the last time, long before we were here. No more beer is served here and there will be no schnitzel here anytime soon. The schnitzel specialist went broke. The search for an alternative remains unsuccessful, pazzarias and inns have all long since closed their shops. On a front wall, even D-Mark prices invite us - a daunting glimpse into history.
      We end with a Lidl shopping and our supper at the train station - until the train picks us up at the stale end of an otherwise flawless and memorable hiking trip.
      I will remember these three days in the Thuringian Forest for a long time, because they brought a lot of recreational value and unexpectedly made me happy and pleased. A great hiking route through a great landscape with many beautiful moments and good accommodation. I hope to be able to experience many more hikes of this quality - the three days make me feel adventurous and look forward to the unknown.
      Until the next adventure so 😉

      This is the third day of a three-day Rennsteig crossing from Saalfeld a. d. Saale to Neustadt b. Coburg (eff. Rödental).
      Day 1: komoot.de/tour/266777660
      Day 2.1: komoot.de/tour/266785671
      Day 2.2: komoot.de/tour/267151336
      Day 3 - Extension: komoot.de/tour/267437272
      After a rich, good breakfast in the Hotel “Schöne Aussicht”, we leave Steinach well rested behind us in thick fog in a westerly direction.
      A few minutes' walk away we reach the Gasthaus Waldfrieden, which offers a very attractive children's adventure playground with a tree house, cable car, swings and a little brook that meanders in between. We notice the sunrise in the thick fog and let the play of colors get us in the mood for the incoming day - a good start!
      A short time later we pass a covered parking and rest area “Silbersattel” on the Schnetterssumpf, cross the federal highway L2657 and the sun smiles at us again through the fog!
      From here on the paths become increasingly firm and wider, often gravel or even tarred. At the Zimmerplatz, not far from the Cuno spring, we decide to head for the Marienfelsen and soak up a little morning sun. From the Marienfelsen you have a wonderful view over the Coburg region and the Thuringia-Bavaria border. We have the Muppberg, a striking table mountain near Neustadt b. Co. always in view. Neustadt is still under a rising cloud cover.
      After this break, we leave the Thuringian Forest and go to the lowlands south of Forschengereuth. We only stay in the cultural landscape of Thuringia for a short time until we are surrounded by the forest area on the former inner-German border.
      At the "Generalsblick", from which one looks across the border, we treat ourselves to a warm break in the sun and take a lunch break.
      With dried clothes and freshly soaked up in the sun, it’s now on the old border paths towards Neustadt. Extremely steep slopes, in the middle of apparently unspoilt nature, make the hiker believe that nobody has been here for decades - you don't hear any traffic, no industry - just birdsong and the wind. Every now and then a narrow view opens up into the country ahead of us, which appears densely forested and untouched by people - a deceptive but romantic picture.
      After we leave the Grenzweg, West German reality quickly catches up with us. We walk along the border through the small nature reserve Meilschnitzwiesen, then we have arrived in Bavaria. You can feel the pressure of the building and the small-scale fragmentation of nature clearly and richly in contrast. But also the prosperity from 50 years of capitalism and democracy. A wealthy economic elite lives here in "the country" and cares about a well-groomed, sublime public image.
      We accompany the small Röden on an oak-lined hiking trail between Wildenheid and Neustadt b. Co. always trying to maintain the illusion of nature.
      When we arrived in Neustadt, we were looking for a café on the market square. There is construction going on everywhere, it is loud and unusually hectic.
      We still have a lot of time, so with a touch of love for freedom we decide: we move on!

      This is the second part of the second day of a three-day Rennsteig crossing from Saalfeld a. d. Saale to Neustadt b. Coburg (eff. Rödental).

      Day 3.2: komoot.de/tour/267437272
      The second section leads us out of Lauscha and past a ski jumping facility that first blocks our way and has to be bypassed. We pass a dripping fountain with the significant name "Lügen Born", which we don't dare to use, but which we don't need after refreshment in the "Eiszapfen".
      Then we reach another foothill from Lauscha and for the first time we encounter the forestry that is clearing an adjacent forest area. Opposite the felling work, Haflingers roam across a spacious and apparently unfenced meadow. The sight is bizarre but not unpleasant, as the scene is framed by the dense coniferous forest and the cloud-covered hills opposite.
      The rest of the way leads along basically solid paths, along a seemingly disused track system. Unfortunately, the forest here is currently very heavily worked and so some paths are so maltreated by large machines that we had to move into the adjacent green in parts in order not to sink forever. The deforestation is unfortunately not all-round nice to look at, but we have to acknowledge that forestry is likely to be essential in the region, so compromises are simply inevitable.
      At the end we reach Steinach and our accommodation "Schöne Aussicht". The name would be program, I'm sure, if the low cloud cover didn't prevent any view.
      The rooms are luxury class for us and that at a low price. Dinner is a real surprise! Seldom have we dined so well with our black beer! Here I enjoy an absolutely stunning roast venison with sliced bread dumplings - I am happy to have that again for breakfast 😋 - I am thrilled! As expected, we sleep excellent, the hotel convinced us.

      This is the first part because Komoot had to be restarted in the middle ...
      From the guesthouse “Zum Meuraberg” we start the second day after a rich breakfast with homemade jam, fresh sausage slices and good coffee. Heavy clouds cover the sky today, it is windy and in places it is very cold.
      The path leads us first over the Meurasteins, which, although natural rock formations, are strongly reminiscent of a romantic robber baron's castle.
      Directly below the striking Meurasteins, we then find a well-equipped emergency sleeping place. There is a small refuge, a fireplace and a covered resting place with a table and benches. Anyone who sets up camp here for one night sleeps to the calming murmur of the little brook “Schlage” flowing by, into which the Jückelbach flows right here.
      A simple wooden bridge leads the hiker under the spruce trees into the Aßberg nature reserve up to the mountain peak. The rustic, beautiful coniferous forest still dominates the vegetation, but deciduous trees are showing up more and more often.
      Up here we come into low cloud fields at times, which appear to us like thick fog and reduce the temperature by a few degrees - it is really autumnal fresh!
      Behind the mountain, the view opens over the small village of Schmiedefeld and the rugged hilly landscape towards Lippelsdorf.
      A steep descent down to Piesau leads us quickly through Wallendorf-Lichte, past the small church and back into the dense forest on Mittelberg.
      Halfway between Wallendorf and Ernstthal, we take our lunch break at a rest area and plan a detour from the route to Lauscha. It's fresh and we long for a warm-up - it should be a coffee. The glass industry is at home here in Lauscha and you are already informed about the history and the industry by means of signs on the approaching hiking trails. In Lauscha we find very nicely laid out little houses, almost all of which are paneled with dark slate. An impressive picture.
      In a small ice cream parlor “Eiszapfen” opposite the “Christmas outlet Lauscha”, which sells the glass products of the Lauscha colored glassworks, we enjoy a well-deserved coffee, the best cherry cake of our life and a very good Federweisser.

      This is the first day of a three-day Rennsteig crossing from Saalfeld a. d. Saale to Neustadt b. Coburg (we extended to Rödental at the end).

      Day 2.2: komoot.de/tour/267151336
      Day 3.1: komoot.de/tour/267150950
      Day 3.2: komoot.de/tour/267437272
      We reach Saalfeld by train at 10:00 a.m. with sunshine and a pleasant 18-20 ° C. At the train station we treat ourselves to a little refreshment at the local bakery, unfortunately, due to the CoVid-19 restrictions, you can't sit together anywhere, so we eat in the open air. The “piece of the week” seems to refer to its age rather than its date of manufacture ... it is definitely cute and helps us get going.
      Then it goes through the really beautiful and definitely worth visiting old town of Saalfeld. It is market day and many small stalls sell fresh produce (fish, sausage, cheese ...) when the traffic is unexpectedly busy. A look at the price card for the various stands tells us that the world is still in order here - very personable. We get a real Thuringian bratwurst at Mannheim's butcher's shop (Brudergasse, corner of Blankenburger Straße) right on the market and stroll briefly to Johanneskirche, then it's back on the tour.
      From here we reach the Feengrotte adventure world, a stalactite cave in a former mine on the south-eastern outskirts of the city. We pass without visiting the cave. In front of us, a small group is being let in by the cave guide dressed in miners' costumes, so the visitors are running.
      Above the grotto, the picturesque view opens up over the Uhlstädter Heide for the first time, the hiking holiday begins!
      The medium and small garden knolls are quickly and easily passed, light oak and beech forest lines the natural forest floor path. We hike comfortably and lightly through heather grass and low blueberry fields.
      North of Eyba, a small settlement whose conspicuous onion church tower is visible from afar, another view of the extensive cultural landscape of the Saale valley opens up. In Eyba we make a comfortable stop at the Annemüller inn, which presents itself to us as “Egons” and offers seats in the inner courtyard. A large tour group is there shortly before us and takes over the service - but we get a few cyclists and the world is all right again 😊.
      From here we cross the field landscape on the Talberg in the direction of Arnsgereuth - and this time again this fantastic view into the distance - this time to Schloßkulm and the castle itself.
      Behind Arnsgereuth lies the small Silbersee, which didn't seem particularly inviting to us because we had to reckon with a change in the weather and wanted to continue. So we cross the Hornberg and Mittelberg on solid gravel roads through a dense, primeval fir forest. The temperature drops a few degrees, but the air is dazzlingly fresh and invigorating. A lot of moisture is retained here, good for frogs and toads!
      We continue on the natural forest floor on narrow, barely recognizable paths through the dense Thuringian forest. We reach the Hasenleite nature reserve and are now only a few minutes' walk from our accommodation. As the grand finale, we are offered another panoramic view in the budding evening mood. This time the Meuraer Heide to the north - what a hiking experience! 😃
      Our guesthouse "Meuraberg" welcomes us warmly with lots of personal charm. We get the impression that time has passed more slowly here. The interior is well cared for, but showing its age and the stil-decor is a journey back in time to the golden 20s of furniture makers, mixed with a modernization pep from the 90s. We eat well here and sleep like dead after two Köstritzer black beers.
