The Ringweg leads initially with a slight and then with a steeper gradient to the scattered settlement of Birkenhäuser. This is followed by a very demanding, steeply rising route back to the city. After leaving the village, the path leads through wide open landscapes; after that, forest and field alternate on a small scale. There are good views from Oelsnitzer Strasse and Schilbacher Landstrasse.
