Enjoy Nature along the River Ilm and in the Goethe Park (3.9 km)
Go straight ahead from the hotel entrance across Beethovenplatz as far as the "Park an der Ilm". After passing two giant stone chairs, the route heads to the right into the park. Keep right at each of the forks in the path until you come to a larger pathway at the edge of the park, running parallel to Belvederer Allee. Follow this path for ca. 1 km. Once level with the side road "Max-Liebermann-Strasse", turn left again back into the park and cross the bridge over the Ilm. After crossing the bridge, the route turns left along a narrow, winding path along the banks of the Ilm. At the next bridge but one, head back over the Ilm again. Turn right after crossing the bridge; then turn left, heading uphill, at the next fork. Once at the top of the hill, head immediately left again and follow the path until you reach the "Knights Templar" salon. Once there, turn right. Turn left at the next opportunity, taking you back to Beethovenplatz and to the hotel.
An ideal short circuit for relaxing, regenerating, and enjoying Nature!
