The Große Inselsberg is, at 916 m, the highest mountain in the north-western part of the Thüringer Wald and, after the Großen Beerberg (982.9 m), the fourth highest mountain in Thüringen. It is visible from afar as a landmark.
Next to the broadcasting tower is a 21-metre-high observation tower. It offers a 360° view. On the lower floors, the transmission technology of the former telecommunications tower is on display. The tower is also an unusual climbing location: On the outer facade there is a 17-metre-high climbing wall with a climbing machine as an ideal "climbing partner". For beginners and children, there is a three-metre-high bouldering wall.
The air health resort Friedrichroda lies on the northern slope of the Thuringian Forest in the district of Gotha and is located in the valley of the Schilfwasser, which is surrounded by mountains. The Heuberg, Spießberg and Regenberg mountains on the Rennsteig trail are part of the town's land. Since the Middle Ages, fish have been farmed on 26 hectares in the Cumbacher Teichen. Reinhardsbrunn Castle, built on the ruins of a former monastery, with its associated landscape park is in a ruinous state and had to be expropriated in order to enforce monument protection.
The Berghotel Friedrichroda, opened in 1980 as a recreation home for the trade union „August Bebel“ with 1,500 beds at the time, is still the largest hotel in Thüringen and belongs to the Ahorn Hotels.
The air health resort in Friedrichroda is in ruined condition.
The climatic health resort of Bad Tabarz is located north of the Groß Inselsberg in the district of Gotha. Several springs between the Kleiner Inselsberg and the Tanzbuche form the Flüsschen Laucha. From the B 88, the road branches off to the Kleiner Inselsberg and via Brotterode further into the Werra Valley.
The Thüringer Waldbahn is an overland railway that runs from Gotha along the northern edge of the Thüringer Wald to Waltershausen and Tabarz. After initial plans in 1897, construction began in 1914. Interrupted by the war, it was finally completed in 1929. The line starts at Gotha station and runs 21.7 km with 22 stops to Bad Tabarz. The journey takes just under an hour. A 2.4 kilometre long branch line to Waltershausen station begins at Waltershausen Gleisdreieck.
The municipality of Finsterbergen is a district of the town of Fridrichsroda. The state-recognised climatic health resort is situated at an altitude of 450 to 500 metres. Finsterbergen was founded in 1141 as an outlying estate of Reinhardsbrunn Monastery. Situated on the Rennsteig road, carting was the main occupation. At the end of the 19th century, home work for doll making was introduced. Today Finsterbergen is a popular resort and has several guesthouses, three large hotels, a riding school and a swimming pool.
