The climate of Thuringian Forest (Germany)
The Thuringian forest is a mountainous forest located centrally in Germany in the federal state of Thuringia. The highest peak is the Grosse Beerberg with an altitude of 982 meters. The Schneekopf and the Sommerbachskopf are two other high peaks in this region. The Rennsteig runs through the region which is a footpath which connects the peaks in this region. The Rennsteig footpath follows the summits of the Thuringian Forest and the Central Highlands from northwest to southeast at an altitude between 500-970 meters. The footpath starts in the city of Eisenach and ends after 169.3 kilometers in the city of Blankenstein. Several places to spend the night are situated along the footpath. Just like most regions in Germany the Thuringian Forest has a moderate maritime climate with cool summers and mild winters. Because rainclouds remain stationary between the peaks precipitation figures are slightly higher in this region than in other regions in Germany. During the winter snowfall is not uncommon. The figures below apply to the lower situated regions. Please bear in mind that it gets colder the higher you travel.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period.
