Turn-by-turn directions

Starting in Holzhau, the route leads over the Steinkuppe into the Hemmschuh nature reserve with spicy-scented Bärwurz, the blue devil's claw and bright orange tiger lilies. We continue to two brothers of a special kind: The Large Lugstein and the Small Lugstein are part of the Erzgebirge ridge and have a height difference of only three centimeters. The loop route takes us to a mystical place: the Georgenfelder Hochmoor is a special natural treasure. Few raised bog areas are so well preserved. A unique landscape with rare vegetation: bog pine, cranberry, sundew and many others characterize the landscape here. The route leads up to the Kahleberg, with a fantastic panoramic view - on to the Altenberg winter sports center. Leave the gallows ponds behind and follow the BLOCKLINE into the Weißbachtalm, one of the most attractive valleys in the region. After you have crossed the wooden portal in Hermsdorf, the path leads you back to Holzhau via the loop connection.
