Duke Ernst II still in the foundation year of the racing association the area as present to them. Shortly after the first racing day already started. During the next years the area was reconstructed.

The falcon's stone is a 96 meter high porphyry rock which near rises of the racing steep path in the sky. His size impresses not only traveller, but also shows for climbing sportsmen a challenge. Thousands of them scale yearly the most popular rock of the Thuringian wood. The climbing ways climbable with professional equipment partially go by fissures and caves up to the summit cross. However, the normal traveller can admire the falcon's stone merely from below. The rock lies in one for car closed area and is accessible exclusively on foot or by bicycle. Footpaths lead from all directions here. A 7 km long distance begins in Tambach-Dietharz and winds in the imposing reservoir of the dam along narrow water reason.
