From the car park at the Marie-Louise-Stolln visitor mine in Berggießhübel, drive down the valley and pass the iron road. It used to be used as a transport route for the iron ore mines in the Gottleuba Valley to the hammer mills on the banks of the Bahra River.Soon you reach the village of the same name; after a long, steady climb, you pass through the small village of Raum. From there, surrounded by foothills of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, you reach the border plate after about 6 km. This romantic rock formation offers a fantastic view of the popular climbing area in the Bielatal. You then cycle along the border to the Czech Republic through a large stand of spruce and can enjoy the view of the mountain meadows of the Osterzgebirge from the approx. 550 m high Zeisigstein. From here it is only a few minutes by bike to the Bahratal. You will then return to your starting point in Berggießhübel via Hellendorf and Bad Gottleuba.
