Exciting bike tours on the Ilm cycle path

Discover the Ilm cycle path

You will spend eventful days on the Ilmtal cycle path! Your bike tour begins where the Ilm rises: near the Rennsteig. With a lot of "mountain air" in your lungs, you roll down through the Ilmtal into the wide Thuringian countryside. On the way you can expect varied driving fun - accompanied by old defiant castles, the church in the village, historical parks that Goethe already knew in Weimar, Ilmenau and Bad Berka. You will find history and culture everywhere, museums provide information about what has happened and what is worth knowing, and of course about the Weimar Classics in particular.

If you want, you can extend your cycle tour and switch from the mouth of the Ilm into the Saale to the Saale cycle path. A jump into the Unstruttal shouldn't be missed either. Enjoy the mild climate of the Saale-Unstrut wine region and a good drop of wine from young and old vintners from their cellars and vineyards. Are you interested in the Ilm cycle path? Then we recommend the bike tour Thuringian chain of cities. Take a look at the offer and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us here.
