Ruhla lies on the northern side of the Thüringer Forest in the Rolla and Erbstrom valleys and became known as a mining, industrial and clock-making town. Today tourism dominates the economy. The Watch Museum and the Tobacco Pipe Museum are worth seeing.
A popular guesthouse for excursions is the Rulaer Skihütte.It was originally a small settlement north of the Rennsteig, which belongs to the Winterstein district of the town of Waltershausen. As early as the 17th century, there was a small settlement of forest workers on the Schwarzbachwiese, 660 metres above sea level. In 1932, the traditional restaurant „Ruhlaer Skihütte“ was built. A bungalow village and a holiday camp were built above the Schwarzbachwiese. The holiday camp is now the Hotel „Rennsteighof“.
In the 1990s, a falconer and ornithologist built the „Bird of Prey Sanctuary on the Rennsteig“ next to the "Ruhlaer Skihütte" inn.
The Große Inselsberg is the highest mountain in the north-western part of the Thüringer Wald (Thuringian Forest) at 916 m and the fourth highest mountain in Thüringen after the Grosse Beerberg (982.9 m). It is visible from afar as a landmark.
Brotterode-Trusetal lies south of the foot of the Grosse Inselsberg. The Rennsteig runs over the Inselsberg. To the north of the ridge is the holiday resort of Tabarz and to the south the district of Trusetal.
The Hörselberge are a ridge up to 484.2 m high and about 6 km² in size north of the Hörsel valley near Eisenach. The hill range consists of shell limestone and red sandstone. The Hörselberge break off with a striking escarpment to the north towards the Hörsel valley. To the north of the Hörselberge is the Hainich National Park.
