Starting from the hiking car park next to the Berghaus Rhön, we start on the circular trail in the direction of a beautiful forest area. After we have crossed this, the Würzburg house can be reached via a small detour.

The tour then continues across a beautiful meadow area before it curves back into a forest of the Black Mountains. Here we almost reach the highest point of the Farnsberg (786m). Then it's back to the Berghaus Rhön.
