Thuringia — the land of palaces, castles and historic old towns with all their myths and stories. The land of bratwurst and dumplings and the land of glass and porcelain. Situated in the middle of Germany, full of culture and beautiful nature, Thuringia is a versatile, beloved corner of Eastern Germany — and there's no better way to discover it than by road bike.

At the perfect cruising speed to discover all the beautiful Highlights, you'll roll along the quiet roads and cycle paths of the province. On bike, you'll experience every inch of this stunning landscape using nothing but the power hidden in your own two legs.

In this Collection, we take you in seven stages through the southeast of Thuringia. Characterized by the river Saale with its impressive dams, tranquil villages, shady forest slopes and sun-drenched wine plantations, you will experience Thuringia (and on a few small detours parts of Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony) in a manner that's simply not possible using other means of transport.

We have chosen the university town of Jena as the starting point for our Tour of Thuringia. And that's not without reason — one great feature of our 360-mile (580-kilometer) round trip is that you can easily take the train back to Jena from any stage. That way, you'll always have a Plan B in your back pocket in case you can't ride any further or if the weather changes. Additionally, this gives you the opportunity to ride the stages individually or to "build" your own adventure, which may take only two or three days. Along each stage, you will also find a large selection of hotels and guesthouses as well as shopping facilities, restaurants and cultural highlights. That way, your journey of discovery can continue long after the ride. The individual rides are also relatively short, so you can do them even if you are not particularly well trained. If, on the other hand, you want to challenge yourself a bit more, you can simply combine one or two stages. Just keep in mind that Thuringia is quite hilly: You'll be climbing and descending numerous times throughout the day — so try and take it easy on the flat stretches to conserve your strength.

    Today, the route starts in Saxony-Anhalt and leads you back towards the end of the stage on Thuringian soil. The stage is characterized by two long sections on beautiful bike paths (some former railway lines) and thus runs over long distances completely traffic-free.It starts right on the Saale - if only for a few hundred meters. Then the route …

    From Gera today our route makes a detour to Saxony and brings you wonderfully quietly through picturesque villages and idyllic valleys in contemplative Netzschkau.After leaving Gera behind you, the track bends directly onto a quiet bike path that takes you to Ronneburg. It is worth noting that it looked quite different here years ago, because the bike path takes …

    The short leg from Netzschkau to Zeulenroda is all about water. First, you circle the Pöhl dam, before you head for the Zeulenrodaer Meer.Today the way is the goal. On the way, neither special sights nor larger cities are waiting for you. For a lot of water, lots of nature and the wonderful peace in the middle of Germany.

    Today's stage holds some wet highlights ready for you. It goes straight well when you cross the dam Zeulenroda and can enjoy a great view of the large reservoir. Incidentally, the sooner you set off, the more beautiful you are because here you can enjoy the magical light of the rising sun.The second "water highlight" leaves no 30 kilometers …

    After a restful night at the Naturhotel, the penultimate stage of our Thuringia tour starts comfortably on the banks of the Hohenwarte reservoir - the great view of the reservoir is included. After a few kilometers of casual curling, it's a good start for the first time. After the crisp climb you are really warm and you will be rewarded …

    Admittedly, from Bad Berka it is actually not that far to the starting point of our Thuringia round in Jena. But cycling in Thuringia is so much fun that we've just put a few nice "loops" so you can enjoy the beautiful landscape for a bit longer.Let's go in the spa town on a main road to Blankenhain.
