Climate friendly travel
By train and without traffic jams comfortably to Eisenach.
Sounding names: In the Thuringian Forest, you can choose between the "Gipfelwanderweg" (summit hiking trail), "Drachenschlucht" (dragon gorge) or "Werra-Burgen-Steig" (Werra Castle Trail). Or you can opt for a short "extra tour" - which leaves more time for the Thuringian culinary delights.
The beauty of a summer retreat in ThuringiaYou can combine the enjoyment of art and hiking almost anywhere. If you start hiking in Eisenach, for example, you will eventually pass the Metilstein with its magnificent view high above the Thuringian Forest. Soon after you are already in front of the legendary Wartburgbefore returning to the magnificent old town of Eisenach. This enjoyment tour lasts only two hours and yet already shows much of what makes the Thuringian Forest almost everywhere: You pass through nice, picturesque villages, pass castles and palaces, visit a museum, stop in a historic-looking restaurant - and all this in one day, within a Hike.
If you're looking for something a little stricter, however, we recommend the Goethe Hiking Trail from Ilmenau to Stützerbach: it's 20 kilometers long and passes 17 of Goethe's places of activity. The highlight of the triple-active one-man show: a park bench right by the Amtshaus in Ilmenau. Goethe himself is sitting there in the form of a statue and seems to be waiting for a brief chat.
Eleven friends: In the Thuringian Forest, eleven communities have joined forces and, with the guest card, simultaneously offer the Rennsteig ticket an: The bus and the Schwarzabahn are free of charge within these eleven regions, and on weekends the Rennsteig Shuttle also includes the train. The Rennsteig ticket is handed out together with the guest card directly at the check-in in your accommodation. You can find more information here.
