On the Extratour we hike over the Stellberg and immerse ourselves in the original mixed deciduous forest. From the large basalt rubble dump in the summit area, we experience a grandiose view of the Fuldaer Land down to the Rhön river Bieber.
The nature experience continues: Around the basalt mountain Maulkuppe, the "Land of Open Distances" amazes us with changing panoramic views of the Rhön Mountains before the extra tour returns to the starting point.
Safety informationThe 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.
