The extra tour The Rasdorfer starts at Anger, Hesse's largest village square. The collegiate church is also located there. The church, built in 1274, immediately catches the eye with its special church tower. The Extratour starts by reaching the Gehilfersberg (456 m) with its chapel and the cemetery forest, in which there are trees up to 250 years old. The path continues past the Bornmühle and the Kirchberg (383 m) to the Rasdorfer Berg (411 m). There is the Point Alpha memorial with its exhibition rooms and large outdoor areas remembering the devided Germany. The hiking trail follows the former border line to the "Weg der Hoffnung" - a sculpture trail. The route then runs past Wiesenfeld and the Dachberg (421 m) back to Rasdorf.

Author’s recommendation

The large village square "Anger" in Rasdorf with the over 700 year old collegiate church impress every visitor.

Safety information

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

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