Start and finish line is in Holzhau. However, you can access the track at any point of your choice. From Holzhau, the trail leads you along the railway embankment and the Czech border through the Hemmschuh nature reserve to Rehefeld. Wooden portals show you the way into a land full of breathtaking panoramic views, unique rock formations, dams, lush mountain meadows and idyllic streams. The tour goes on via the overlook on Kahleberg Mountain following the raised bogs of Georgenfeld to Altenberg. Afterwards, the route meanders past the town of Schellerhau, via the Stephanshöhe overlook to Blockhausen, Frauenstein, Lichtenberg, and Mulda. You will see sculptures created with a chain saw, and an amazing adventure playground before the BLOCKLINE ushers you on through little towns like Dorfchemnitz and Sayda. Past the museums in Neuhausen, our tour leads you to Seiffen, the “town of toys”, via the Schwartenberg overlook, and finally along the border back to Holzhau.
