Stage 4: Neidenberga to the dam wall

.

On the fourth stage of the Hohenwarte Reservoir Trail, you reach Steinsdorf after a steep passage. Shortly afterwards you come to St. Jacob, the smallest village on the Hohenwarte Reservoir. Staying on this elevation, you pass the small village of Löhma and reach the Rohrbahnüberggang. There you have an impressive view of the village of Hohenwarte. From there, the starting point and the destination of your fourth hike are not far away: the dam wall in Hohenwarte at the foot of the mountain.
