We can look forward to true, unspoiled nature on the rustic, empty high plains around Jelení, where the vast expanses transmit a wonderful tranquillity, pushing modern life well into the background. The restfulness comes to an end after 30 kms, however. Thanks to our route planner, we still face three tough old bumps before finishing off this tour of the Ore Mountains. These are the toughest climb in Saxony, up to Bernsbach, the steep road to the Markersbach Pumped Storage Power Plant and the Tellerhäuser ascent of the Fichtelberg, where Epic Climbs boss Jan had to give up, exhausted, when preparing for the 2012 Tour of Germany. We shall probably be spared a similar fate thanks to the nutritional supplies we've taken on board all week. The destination for both the stage and the tour is the top of the Fichtelberg. There, on the highest mountain in eastern Germany at 1214 m, we can toast the end of the tour together with a feast at the Hotel Fichtelberghaus. This is followed by a bus transfer back to Dresden.
