Ilm Cycle Path

Ilmenau - Weimar.

The river Ilm rises close by the Rennsteig in 800 meter altitude of the Thuringian forest and get over a altitude difference of about 450 meter, till it disembogues in river Saale in Bad Sulza. That’s also the reason, why over 50 mills are driven on by water in former times. The Ilmtal Cycle path is one of the most beautiful tracks, where you will discover charming small villages, many historical places in a beautiful countryside. The historically significant region fascinates by castles, parks as well as the Goethe's towns of Weimar, Ilmenau and Bad Berka.
