In the Rhönwald nature reserve between Hilders and Frankenheim you will find three circular trails of different lengths along the former inner-German border. The Rhönwaldloipe is a real insider tip and leads through the forest at an altitude of about 800 meters and is protected from the wind. There are connections to the long Rhön trails and the Thuringian Rhön trail network.

 

Please always drive the routes clockwise!

Author’s recommendation

Use the connection to the Thuringian cross-country ski trail network and combine your tour with a stop at the Thuringian Rhönhaus!

Safety information

The tourist paths of the Rhön are mostly also used by other active people (hikers, walkers, etc.).

We ask all active nature sports enthusiasts to show consideration for one another. Of course, the same applies to nature - it is worth protecting. In the Rhön, nature sports should therefore only be practiced in daylight on designated paths and areas.

Tips and hints

In the winter sports report or on the snow phone you can find out daily which winter trails have been prepared.
