Our hike to the Collm starts at Hubertusburg Castle in Wermsdorf, one of the largest hunting lodges in Europe. From here, we follow the street ‘Am Fasenholz’ and after about 500 meters we reach a small pedestrian path on the left side, which leads us to the Oschatzer Straße. We cross the Oschatzer Straße and reach the Schreberweg. From now on we follow the signs to the Collm. At the end of the allotment, we reach an insect hotel with an information board. The hiking trail, which is marked with a red crossbar on a white background, leads us directly into the Wermsdorf forest to the cultural monument ‘Wüstes Schloss Hayn’. This is the remains of a medieval moated castle. For passers-by, however, it is hardly noticeable today due to wild plant growth, only a sign points to the former location. At the next large crossroads, we turn right and follow the signs ‘Collm / Silbersee’. A few steps later, we keep left in the direction of Silbersee and use the yellow trail markings for orientation. Arriving at the pond, a seating area invites you to linger. The Silbersee, whose water surface is said to shimmer silver on moonlit nights, is actually called Carlsteich and was formed by damming the Altenhainer Bach stream. We cross the outlet at the dam and follow the forest path. After a short ascent we meet another hiking trail, turn right and after about 200 meters we reach the Eselsbrunnen. We pass it and follow the red-yellow markings until we reach the edge of the forest. Our view sweeps over the fields to the Collm with the Albertturm and radio mast. We keep to the left at the edge of the field and gradually begin the ascent. The red marked path leads us back into the forest. We follow the signs and after about 600 meters, we reach the Albertturm. With its 312 meters above sea level, the Collm is the highest elevation in the Leipzig region. From the 18 meters high Albertturm, which is freely accessible, we have a wonderful panoramic view of the North Saxon countryside. After a short break, we begin our descent. We follow the paved Collmbergstraße until the marked hiking trail (red/yellow) branches off on the left side. After a few steps, we cross the Collmbergstraße again and then walk into the village of Collm. We reach the village playground, which is located directly on Mahliser Straße. From here, we can take a short detour to the 1,000-year-old linden tree in the Collm cemetery. It is the oldest lime tree in Saxony, is proudly 18 meters high and has a trunk circumference of 11 meters. Martin Luther is also said to have rested under the Collmer lime tree. We follow the Mahliser Straße, then turn onto the asphalt bike path and walk below the Collm again in the direction of Wermsdorf. When we reach the edge of the forest, we turn left and follow the green trail markings. After some time, we reach a refuge. Here you have the possibility to walk back to Wermsdorf on the Collmer footpath which branches off to the right. But we keep straight on and walk through the desert Mark Albersdorf. Soon we reach a larger crossroads with signs. On the left-hand side, we see the Zinkernageldenkmal, but we turn right towards Wermsdorf. After about 500 meters we reach another crossroads, turn left and orientate ourselves by the green signposting of the Collmer footpath. A short time later, this path branches off to the right, but we walk straight on and soon meet the yellow hiking trail marking. We follow this and keep to the right at the next junction. The trail now runs parallel to a bridle path. We reach a clearing and then the Schreberweg. We pass the insect hotel and return to Wermsdorf. Crossing Oschatzer Straße, we reach the street ‘Am Fasenholz’ and thus have our starting point, Hubertusburg Castle, in view as an orientation marker.
