Starting from the parking lot at the Wartturm, the Extratour leads counter-clockwise in the direction of Strahlungen. The hiking trail leads past a chapel and reaches the first of many viewpoints. From here we can look over the village Strahlungen.

The route continues above the village to the vineyard, a shell limestone slope on which wine was grown until 1840. From here and the viewing platform at the former quarry, which is reached shortly afterwards, the view can wander over the beautiful landscape of the Rhön and Grabfeld. Over meadows and through forests we reach the Höhberg with its summit cross, on which the panoramic views of the Lautertalblick and the Michelsbergblick open up to us. Finally, we reach the highlight of the Extratour, the Schlegelwarte - an observation tower from the 13th century, which can still be climbed today. Shortly afterwards we arrived back at the starting point of our hiking tour.

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.
