From the Holzberghof, the circular trail leads slowly uphill towards the Bavarian-Hessian border. The route continues uphill via the Münzkopf summit, always through a snow-covered forest landscape, back to the starting point.

About halfway along the route, there is a connection to the long-distance trail B9 in the direction of the three-country triangle.

Author’s recommendation

Be sure to plan a stop at Gasthof Jagdschloss Holzberghof! The hunting lodge is already a feast for the eyes from the outside.

Safety information

The tourist paths of the Rhön are mostly used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, horse riders, cross-country skiers, 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

The snow hotline provides information about the winter conditions in the Rhön.
