Bad Salzschlirf is a charming spa town, which is located between the Rhön and Vogelsberg. It offers all sorts of spa treatments and impressive buildings as well as warm hosts.

The Extratour Tour de Natur begins in the town's spa garden and leads uphill towards the Söderberg (356m), which the hiking trail circles. Crossing the Lauter valley, the route leads to Weiersberg (392 m). After the summit, the path leads to the Koppe (348 m), on which there is a celestial observation point. From here, day and night, an impressive view of the city of Bad Salzschlirf and the sky opens up. Finally, the Extratour leads back to the spa town and the spa gardens there.

Author’s recommendation

In the spa garden of Bad Salzschlirf there is a sky observation point. At night and during the day you can learn a lot about the starry sky here.

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.

Strecke ist ganz gut. Ausschilderung könnte besser sein. Wann hat der Anbieter letztmals die Strecke kontrolliert? Einige zusätzliche Markierungen und ein Schild geradebiegen, schon wäre es deutlich besser. 2-mal verlaufen, das muss nicht sein!
