Goldlauter im Thüringer Wald

Goldlauter lies on the southwest slope of the Thüringer Forest in the heart of Germany. The Große Beerberg is the highest point in the Thüringer Waldes. It is located only three kilometers from Goldlauter and even falls within the Goldlauter Corridor! The Rennsteig is the highest and probably best known German trail in the Thüringer Forest and provides beautiful views of Goldlauter-Heidersbach to the hiker.

Where today flow the rivers Ramselbach, Goldene Lauter, Lange Lauter and Dürre Lauter, there was once located 290 million years ago an underwater basin which has left behind a deep valley. And whether one wants to believe it or not, in this inland sea about 40 km wide even sting sharks lived in abundance! In the upper part of the valley, one can still find today impressions of fossil fishes or even the little stingers of the sharks.
