On this relaxed stage you leave the hills of the Thuringian Forest to hike back into the Schwarzatal valley. Through the open mountain meadows near Altenfeld, you reach the Hirschtal valley with its murmuring stream and small ponds not far from the village. After a detour into the forest, you cross the Reischelbachtal valley to finally take the last few metres uphill towards Großbreitenbach.

You reach Großbreitenbach not far from the large campsite with the open-air swimming pool and continue along the panorama trail on the southern edge of the village. If you like, you can make a detour into the old town centre to the Thuringian Forest Creative Museum. This is also home to the first German Kloßpressmuseum. Just south of Großbreitenbach, the stage also passes the biathlon centre of the ski club. 

.

At the end of the stage, the trail follows the Breitenbach through the Hirschgrund to Meuselbach-Schwarzmühle. Here the Panorama Trail meets the Schwarza again.
