Hello everyone;

Unfortunately the lockdown is still there and we cannot organize public events. However, we thought about making a hiking challenge to encourage everyone to go out in the nature and use the fresh air.

The challenge is very simple: there are 20 hiking routes, and everyone is invited to go to these hiking routes alone or with someone. You have time till end of January to complete as many route as possible. Let's see who can do the most.

Challenge Accepted? Join here and after a short time we will add your name to the list. Make sure to choose a unique name which does not exist in the table. Once you see your name in the table below, you can register your completed routes with other people.

Who did what till now?!

Congratulations to Roman and Raihan who completed the whole challenge first on 31. January together!

Challenge +

For people who finished the challenge and still like to go to new routes, we are suggesting some new routes which are actually going to new destinations than previously introduced routes. The others who want to go for long hikes can also take a look at our newly added routes.

  • Route 17 is very challenging but very close to Jena.

  • Route 18 is good when it is wet or muddy or you do not want to go uphill. It mostly leads you on solid roads with less traffic.

  • Route 19 and 20 are quite long and ending outside Jena.

Note that Route 20 is out of 15 km distance from the city, so you might skip it for the moment (due to the pandemic regulations).

If you know a beautiful way for hiking, contact us. We would like to add it to our website with your name. Let us share our knowledge and enjoy the hiking trails together. :-)
