From Kranichfeld via Bad Berka to Weimar | 30 km

The route leads through the Weimarer Land, as this region is called, further from Kranichfeld to Tannroda, a small town, offering a worth seeing castle and the Thuringian museum for basket making. After cycling through a picturesque landscape you reach Bad Berka, which has been a spa town for almost 200 years. The spa gardens in the midst of the city centre offer pieces of arts for eyes and ears, a Kneipp water-treading basin and the Goethe fountain, the waters of which are rumoured to have a healing effect.
Past the villages of Hetschburg, Buchfart and Oettern you come to Mellingen on a very well developed piece of cycle path, leading you via the road B87 between Buchfart and Oettern. This stage ends in the Ilm park of Weimar, the great cultural city! It is highly recommended to spend some time and get enthused by the city of the classics.

Freilichtmuseum Hohenfelden | Foto: eyespalast
Thüringer Freilichtmuseum Hohenfelden (Open Air Museum)

The open air museum offers fascinating insights into everyday life in earlier centuries. 33 historical buildings from the 17th to the 20th century show how our ancestors lived, what their everyday life was like, what they ate, which tools they used and what it looked like in their houses, stables and barns back then.
Historic buildings from various Thuringian villages were relocated to the museum grounds "Am Eichenberg". Among other buildings, there are a big farm of a wealthier farmer, a village smithy, a windmill, a village school, a pottery and even a humble house for the community herdsman and his family. The museum buildings are presented in an environment modelled on the original situation back then including cottage gardens and fields as well as historical plant and animal species.
From April to October visitors are offered a wide-ranging exhibition and event programme with demonstrations of traditional crafts, with baking or harvest days and festivals such as the Harvest Festival, the classic car show or the cheese market. In the museum brewery they produce strong dark beer according to grand-grandfather’s recipe on special brewing days. The museum restaurant "Einkehr zur alten Pfarre" offers traditional Thuringian cuisine in a historic ambience.

Coudray-Haus Bad Berka | Foto: Fred Ruppe
Coudrayhaus

The listed historic building was put up by the grand duke’s best master builder Coudray as a bath house and a place for get-togethers for the spa guests in Bad Berka. The opening ceremony took place in the presence of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and members of the Weimar court on 24 June 1825. Much praise was given to Coudray for this "well done piece of work" held in classical style. From then on, the house became the cultural and social centre of social life in Bad Berka. Besides being a restaurant there were balls, concerts, theatre performances and other events. Between World War II and 1994 the house was part of the Volksheilbad, since then it has belonged to the town of Bad Berka.

Schloss Blankenhain | Bildeigner: Stadt Blankenhain
Blankenhain Castle (Schloss Blankenhain)

The castle was built on an elevated plateau within the town around 1150 and has its origin in a Ringhausburg, describing a Romanesque castle where the living quarters were built directly to the back of the annular curtain wall. Thus, from above, the castle looked like a ring. After several fires in the 17th century, the then Late Gothic castle was rebuilt by the Counts of Hatzfeld – with quite some changes of course. The castle complex, which is also a popular venue in Blankenhain, is open to visitors.

Buchfarter Mühle | Foto: FVV WL
Buchfart mill and Mill Shop (Buchfarter Mühle)

The centuries-old Buchfart mill together with the river weir and the covered wood bridge make a unique ensemble. Until 1968 the local farmers’ crop was processed in the mill. After that, the mill was abandoned and fell into disrepair. Thanks to extensive work on the outside facilities and on the mill work the water wheel operates again and generates energy for the machines. The well worth seeing historic machinery is reused nowadays for the production of flour and coarse meal. Every Friday (but not in winter) is baking day - fresh bread is guaranteed!

It was built between 1816 and 1818 according to a design by the Weimar architect Karl Friedrich Christian Steiner. It is now a listed building and one of the most prominent bridges of its kind in Thuringia.

Feiningerturm Mellingen | Foto: KKWutzler
Feininger Tower (Feiningerturm)

The tower was raised in Mellingen in 1999, some kilometres southeast of Weimar. It is an arts installation being called "double motive" by the Swiss architect Marcel Kalberer. The installation is to relive and illustrate the painting style of the painter and graphic artist Lyonel Feininger. The tower is modelled on and inspired by the watercolour painting "Mellingen" – which shows the steeple of the village of Mellingen. The original watercolour painting can be seen at the mayor's office (Tel: 80222 036453). The pipes and bars construction in the typical Bauhaus colours symbolise in a three-dimensional way, what Feininger in his Bauhaus time brought down on paper, and strongly remind of his painting technique. The tower is located at the Feininger Cycle Route, a route of about 30 km length starting in Weimar and connecting the most important stages in the work of the Bauhaus artist.

The tower is located in Mellingen at the B87 and can be visited any time.

From 1794 to 1797 Duke Carl August had dug this cave and tunnel system for beer storage. Today, you can go on a fascinating journey through 200,000 years of earth and human history in the cave’s depths. The cave is protected and listed. The plenty of discovered fossils were of great interest to Goethe: at the age of 20, he collected fossils which are still geo-scientifically relevant today.

Liszt-Haus

In the summer months between 1869 and 1886, the composer and piano virtuoso Franz Liszt lived on the upper floor of the former court plant nursery. Here, he spent his time on teaching his exceptionally talented students. Very shortly after his death, some of the rooms were turned into a memorial site and opened to the public. Thus, the original furniture is still on view in the living room and study - the centrepiece of the flat. The sleeping and dining rooms were restored later on. The ground floor features a permanent media exhibition on Liszt’s life, his works and their reception history.
