One of the possible starting points along this 18.7-kilometre route is the spa park in Bad Steben, which is around a ten-minute walk from the station.

For most of the way you can follow the signs that read "Humboldtweg". If the entire route seems rather long, you can stop at either Höllental or Marxgrün and take the train back to Bad Steben.

It is considered to be one of the ten most attractive thermal baths in Germany, and has been awarded the "TouriSpo Award" for its facilities.
