Across meadows and through forests we reach the Höhberg with its summit cross, on which the panorama points Lautertalblick and Michelsbergblick open up. Finally we reach the highlight of the extra tour, the Schlegelwarte - an observation tower from the 13th century, which can still be climbed today. After the observation tower, the extra tour leads back in the direction of radiation - past a chapel with a great view. A short time later you reach the starting point at the cemetery in radiation.

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.
Tips and hints
By roadIt is possible to get to the Radiation Extra Tour by car via the A71. To do this, leave the motorway at exit 26 Münnerstadt and drive on the B286 to Münnerstadt. There you follow the signs for radiation. There are parking facilities at the cemetery in the Neustädter Straße.
