    tourist office

    The tourist office is located in a cute little house. I'm not quite sure about the opening times. It was open but after my visit to the café it was closed. In the window hangs a map of Tabarz (second photo). It would actually be helpful if they would hang up such a map at the Waldbahn station.

    Inselsberg, at evening

    The Große Inselsberg (Big Island Mountain) is 916.5 ms high and the best-known mountain of the Thuringian Wood. It´s the home mountain of Tabarz. Not only the view is unique. Also the nature conservation park is worth seeing. Far away obviously his television and radio communication systems and weather arrangements. The island mountain is a ski center, has a youth hostel and two restaurants.

    Every year in summer there is a big mountainbike racing event, the Downhill (see tip sports).
    Downhill

    Bus traffic and motor traffic is low-priced up to the peak. Indeed, one should use the big parking below the peak. There is also a Bungee-tram Pole arrangement, for children (or adults). :)) Farther hotels and restaurants.

    One can reach the island mountain by walking. Also a small train from Tabarz brings guest up to the height.
    Some other pretty villages lie around the mountain which belongs, however, to Tabarz. The mountain is strong frequents.

    Unfortunately, the restaurants on the peak have opened only till 6 pm. Cause is incomprehensibly fo me till now.

    The "Mountaintop Way" - Rennsteig

    by elgin99 Updated Jul 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rennsteig, the way

    Or better to say "Mountain Topway"?? An absolute Must to Do - a walk on (or belong part of) Rennsteig. The letter R on signs or at trees shows that famous mountaintop way, 168 kms across whole Thuringia, and every time belong peaks. From Blankenstein (BTW, my "old homeland") till Hörschel, Eisenach, near my new one. It is an historical way, which exist since 14th century.
    Many people walk on that mountain way every year, many songs written about.
    Of course, also above the Inselsberg there is one part of our "WalkingMountainSuperhighway" (smile).

    Through Bärenbruchsgraben to Aschenbergstein

    start to climbing, B��renbruchsgraben
    4 more images

    There is a rock high above the valley Felsental. One of the climbing rocks, with 60 ms high wall of rock. You have to go left at the end of first part of valley (look for the signs), and walk up more than 2 kms through the narrow valley Bärenbruchsgraben. A nice way, romantic, belong a brook. The view from the peak is so fantastic! Over the Lauchagrund, Felsental, to Tabarz and Inselsberg. A green roof deep under the rock.
    Later you can walk to Tanzbuche, and have a rest in that restaurant, before you walk back to Felsental and Tabarz (another way possible), or like we done across Ungeheurer Grund (valley) to Tabarz.

    Marienglashöhle - Marien´s glas, nice cave

    part of the cave

    The crystal grotto in the Marienglas cave was discovered in 1778 and is one of the nicest and biggest in Europe. Here gypsum crystals are to be seen up to 90 cm length. These were diminished and used to the jewellery by Marien's pictures, what also the name Marienglas originated from.
    In the lower sole there is the cave sea with attractive water reflections. In the functional building you can watch the glassblower at the work or acquire minerals.

    In addition - you can marry in this cave... if you want. :))

    The Lauchagrund - rock valley like a fairy

    by elgin99 Updated Sep 26, 2005

    belong the valley, another view
    4 more images

    My way brings me again and again in the Felsental (rock valley). It is fantastic. On the left and on the right precipitous mountain slopes. And over and over again the high porphyry rocks, from which often water drops. Old high spruces with up to 1.20 cross section dimension, beeches, also firs. In the middle rushs the Laucha, a wild brook. The rocks rise up to 60-meter height (Aschbergstein). Spicy forest ground smell, thick tree tops, ferns in full green.

    And then I come back (or start from) the Massemühle (tip restaurant), one nice Cafe with many special coffee or tea sorts, take a seat in outdoor dining area and relish... or inside with nice ambiente.
    Many tours starts from that fascinating valley.
    And some rocks are climbing rocks for mountaineers.

    The Kurpark is actually not that big but it has benches where you can take a seat and relax. Opposite the Kurpark is the Rathaus (second photo).

    The only information I found about this church is that Tabarz only got a church in 1914. When I visited the church was closed and I didn't see any information either.
