There are also plenty of small and beautiful lakes and you can even go officially fishing there (for a small fee) .

Whether you are looking for some health recreation or just want to spend a great holiday together with your friends and family – Finsterbergen is the place to go.


Finsterbergen during the winter time

In particular during the winter time Finsterbergen is a lot of fun. If you like snow and winter sports you should definetely come for a visit. The Thuringian Forest is not the Alpes, but usually we have a lot of snow every winter.
Around Finsterbergen you will find more than 20 km of cross-country ski trails as well as plenty opportunities to sled, which is a lot of fun especially for kids. If you are more into alpine skiing we have different ski slopes for you according to your skills.

So get your skis and have fun, but don’t miss the beautiful view over the Thuringian Forest before you start.
