Julius Greif shaped the region for many years. This trail was named in his honor. His work in the Rhön Club during the Second World War still brings numerous experiences for Rhön residents and tourists alike.

Safety information

Most of the Rhön ski and cross-country trails are intended for use by skiers/cross-country skiers. If a walker "gets lost" on the route, we ask that you pass on the information that routes (partly) are reserved for winter sports enthusiasts, out of mutual consideration.

Tips and hints

Information on groomed trails can be obtained from the snow hotline.
