The Bleilochtalsperre

Today we pass the former German-German border and are in Thuringia. The famous Rennsteig, the most popular hiking trail in Germany, ends in Blankenstein. We drive a little further to Bad Lobenstein. From here it is only a few kilometers to the Bleilochtalsperre. The Thuringian Sea is the largest reservoir in Germany, which cuts into the landscape like a fjord. However, he has very little water at the moment.

Steep inclines and hilly routes – that is the description of the Saale cycle path for this section. It’s pretty bumpy through the Thuringian Slate Mountains, a mountain bike would be more appropriate here. I am often in doubt whether I am still correct on the track. But at some point I will reach Saalburg. I don’t want to go back to Bad Lobenstein on this bumpy path, unfortunately the alternative is the normal road without a bike path.
