Starting from the Eisernes Kreuz hiking car park above Wildflecken-Oberbach, this route leads through a beautiful forest area on the western slope of the Totnansberg. Halfway along the circular route we can turn off via a connecting trail to the Würzburger Haus and treat ourselves to a well-deserved rest there. The way back runs on a parallel route back to the hiking car park.

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.
