The state road B281 in Schmiedefeld will be under reconstruction for several months. We are currently only accessible from the Lichte-Neuhaus direction.
There is an alternative routing for cars from Saalfeld direction from Reichmannsdorf via Gräfenthal and Gebersdorf to the southern entrance of Schmiedefeld. From there you can drive through the town to the Eisenwerkstraße junction.
This route is NOT possible for trucks as the road is too narrow and they will get stuck. For trucks, please use the alternative route from Saalfeld using the state road B85 to Probstzella and then further via Gräfenthal and Gebersdorf to Schmiedefeld.
