Along the steep railway line "Schiefe Ebene" there is an educational trail which highlights the distinctive historical and architectural features of the historic landmark. Several stations are signposted with information boards about the line's history.
The trail which is roughly eight kilometres long (we recommend going from Neuenmarkt to Marktschorgast) has an altitude difference of 158 metres between the valley station and the top station. After the hike, the "Schiefe Ebene" documentation center awaits you in Marktschorgast.
Roughly three hours should be arranged for the hike. We recommend sturdy shoes as the decents and ascents, which will be rewarded with beautiful views, are occasionally rather steep.
