The adventure trail "Laura" follows the historical course of the railroad on 4.8 km and is also part of the Rennsteig ladder of Frauenwald. Whether young or old, there are things to discover and secrets to uncover for every visitor to the adventure trail. This solves the riddle surrounding the name of the small train “Laura”.

Information boards at four stations of the trail and three differently designed themed playgrounds, up to the quiet view on a small "view wagon", the adventure trail offers a lot of variety on a short distance.

On the one hand, this adventure trail is a reminder of the history of traffic along the Rennsteig trail, and on the other hand, it offers another attraction for hikers along Germany's most famous hiking trail - the Rennsteig. In addition, the trail passes the Bunkermusem. Here, long-forgotten GDR history comes alive again.

Refreshment stops are located at the Rennsteig train station and in Frauenwald.

Author’s recommendation

 Directly on the way is the Bunkermusem Frauenwald, a former base of the GDR State Security.
