Dear hiking friends,
this time I would like to animate you to a very special hiking event, which I worked out together with the komoot community management, based on events that were already running in Berlin and Munich. In view of the restrictive external circumstances, the aim is to strengthen the cohesion of the community and to set up a joint virtual tour. The principle is as follows: At the start I hike a tour from A to B, one of you then hikes from B to C, the next person from C to D etc. I hope we can make it by June 21st to realize a tour as a 'virtual hiking group' every day. This event should be about participants from the Erfurt / Weimar / Jena area, of course you can also travel to contribute a stage. Which route you hike and how long it is entirely up to you, you just have to take your own starting point from the end point of your respective predecessor. It is definitely not a question of 'higher-faster-further' and measuring your strength, but that each participant is actually part of the matter and makes his or her individual contribution to the overall result.-----The following rules apply:
- for sure this is a 'fun event', please go about it with the necessary seriousness and think in terms of community
- Your stage should be at least three kilometers long, there is no limit to the top, but please do not overdo it
- please only contribute A-to-B stages, no round trips
- The destination of your stage should be easily accessible by local or regional public transport. This helps you as well as the person who has to continue at the point.
- After completing your stage, please submit it to komoot online as soon as possible and add me as a participant so that the following person has enough time to plan your own stage and I can add the tour to the collection created for it. You can then edit images, etc.To allocate the 'slots', i.e. the daily allocations:I set up a doodle at: doodle.com/poll/wv9egks8pzz36chaIf you are interested in this campaign, please register there. You only enter the name under which you are active at komoot, I do not need any further data. Pick your desired day and send the form. The following applies: first come, first served and free choice. Please only grab a free 'slot' if you actually intend to hike your stage that day.
I will start on June 12th. starting in Stadtilm, you can then from 13.06. until June 21 continue. Should you still not be able to meet your specified date, send me an email to email@example.com so that I can share the day with other interested parties. If necessary, I will step in for short-term failures so that the chain does not break.-----I am looking forward to your feedback and hope that numerous participants will be there. I sent an invitation to some of you who I follow and who are hiking in the Erfurt / Weimar / Jena area to this virtual event. All others who read here are of course also invited. As always, you are welcome to share your opinion and ask questions here in the comments or contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.orgHere are the previous commitments and participants:

We started with Peter in the 3rd stage of the Hainichlandweg.Route:
Struth - Zella Monastery - Viaduct in Lengenfeld under the stone - Hildebrandshausen - Katharinenberg - Diedorf - Alter Bahnhof, HeyerodeIn the first section of the forest up to around the Zella Monastery, I could observe many different woodpeckers. By watching the forest dwellers, the distance to Peter became significantly larger and I lost the time, which I did not regret 🙃🙃.Many hiking and pilgrim trails overlap from the Zella monastery to Langenfeld under the stone.
In Langenfeld under the stone, the abbreviation “LUST” was increasingly to be read, which made me think a lot, until I strapped what the abbreviation stands for….
The place Hildebrandshausen is a sleepy village (however, there are only 2 pictures) and the CPR is represented alone from these places.
We liked Katharinenberg very much, especially because of the ruins of the churches. In addition, Katharinenberg is in the Südeichsfeld, here you can see from the houses that the place is one of the wealthier villages.
There was a strong, pleasant and pleasant rapeseed scent above Diedorf.
This town is not far from Katharinenberg.
Our last 3 kilometers from Diedorf to Heyerode led along the old railway line. This section of the route is really very nice but unfortunately completely paved, which made your feet tire very quickly after the tour.After a short section of forest at the beginning, the route of our stage mostly led past huge meadows. Which was a completely new experience for us (rather the forest hikers).Highlight: Old Heyerode train station with holiday houses, diverse children's playground with a small farm.Here are the records from Peter: komoot.de/tour/193672047?ref=wta

In the footsteps of the Hainichlandweg we went to stage 2 with Peter.Route:
Hainich Haus Kammerforst - Taternkreuz - Langula Valley - Linden Rondell - White House - Mühlhäuser Landgraben - StruthThe path was initially lined with dead forest pieces, some of which are already regenerating (see picture).
From the 2 kilometers, the route continued for about 1.5 kilometers on an abandoned path that had not been used for a long time. Here the impression was very clear that nature is bringing the way back.
When we crossed the street from Langula to Nazza we met plantations with old, rustic fruit trees. The orchards were very nice to look at with the fresh green and invited to dream. Along the way to the Mühlhausen city forest, we linger at a Langula drinking source with a stone seating group (church background), the Taternkreuz and the Lindenrondell. We struggled from the 6 kilometers for about 1250 m through very difficult paths (felled trees on the way as well as ruts of logging vehicles).
Peter's quote: "Without people, nature would not know how to design the way".
The Waagenbalkenweg and the Fahner-Höhen-Weg also overlap the CPR in this section. A pilgrimage route is added from the Taternkreuz.
On our stage we went through forest, meadows and orchards. Insects, birds and other forest dwellers were very lively. The trees cracked in the forest in the sun, which was sometimes very scary. We saw more and more red squirrels, which were unfortunately too shy for a photo.
The CPR is well signposted, but it also has many side roads.Tip: The Mühlhausen city forest is very idyllic with its panoramic path and sequoias.Here are the records from Peter: komoot.de/tour/192841477?ref=wta

The HLW is a 130 km long RW in Thuringia. This leads into the Wartburgkreis, Unstrut-Hainich-Kreis around the Hainich and its national park, as well as into the Werra valley.
NP Hainich is at our feet. We walk the path without haste and hurry and let nature work on us.
After the first few kilometers, the soul comes into harmony with nature.
Route: Gate to Hainich Weberstedt - Brunstal - Eiserne Had - Ihlefelder Kreuz - Betteleiche - Reckenbühl - Hainich Haus Kammerforst.
The intense scent of wild garlic still sticks in the NP. The leaves of this wonderful herb are now withering visibly.
The chirping of birds in different voices was heard. A wild boar pack with freshlings was spotted by other hikers at the end of the Brunstal ... unfortunately we missed it 😔.
The CPR is accompanied by the Fahner Höhen Weg and Waagenbalkenweg.
Note: Fahner Höhen Weg from Erfurt to Mühlhausen (90 km).
I was on the way with Peter. Here are the records from Peter: komoot.de/tour/192228030?ref=wta

Because of the weather, something completely different than typical for me.
The Belvedere Palace Park is a gem.
When the weather clears up, it is certainly even more appealing.
Parking is, however, only for a fee at the castle park or you can park a little offside.
Alternatively, the train is recommended for Weimar.

But. Unfortunately, this enchanting Hainich round had to end for today. As a consolation there was a special ice cream in the ice cream parlor at Thamsbrück ...Today I was with Heike again on a Hainich tour chosen by her ... Entry at the hiking parking lot Feenstieg ... from here it went first in the direction of Weberstädter Kreuz and on to Düsteroder Teich to the Forsthaus Thiemsburg, where both the information center Hainich and gastronomy is also stationed. The latter is currently covered by a live grill service, which provided us with delicious sausages and roasts. We continued along the stone ditch back to the parking lot with fountain of youth etc. interesting highlights. There would have been no end for those who would not have found their way out of the fairy world through the tricky labyrinth ... But we followed the light as instructed and found ourselves at the exit, so that we found our way back to the parking lot.

An idyllic day of hiking with Romy through the Hainich, starting from the Fuchsfarm hiking car park.
The flowering wild garlic gives the Hainich a wonderful fragrance.
Many Hainich residents could be discovered and overheard. From curious little mouse, grazing deer, many different bird sounds, peacock butterfly, strange insects and a tree frog.
A good conversation with a Hainich Rancher about the voice of the oriole and observation of the forest dwellers also rounded off the tour.
It was a very nice hike with many positive impressions and good photo opportunities.
The NP is very attractive in every season.I did the outdoor hike through the NP with a very nice and pleasant comoot. We had a good time together that day.

In optimal and almost windless weather, we went by bike through the Unstrut-Hainich district today.
We will take a closer look at the sacrificial bog in the Vogtei and the bird protection center in Seebach at a later date (currently closed due to Covid-19).
Overall it was a good tour with some new impressions.

Start / finish: Hiking parking lot Weberstedt
Today it was mainly on forest paths from Weberstedt over the fairy climb to the Weberstedter Kreuz. Then past the Düsteroder pond to the nature trail Thiemsburg to Thiemsburg.
At Thiemsburg you can take a longer break if you wish to visit the treetop path, the root cave or visit the National Park Center with its short films on the topic "Discover the secrets of Hainich".
The Thiemsburg also offers a beer garden and the Forsthaus zur Thiemsburg.
The way back followed the Eichenbergweg, Waagenbalkenweg and the labyrinth in the Feenstieg back to the starting point.
Info: The fairy climb is also called fairy tale nature trail, ideal for children. Brief descriptions from various fairy tales are depicted on wooden boards.
The fairy climb, Düsteroder pond and the nature trail Thiemsburg is very attractive.
In the end, there was a delicious ice cream bag as a reward in Thamsbrück.
