Looking at the ground we discover the typical limestone grassland of the Rhön. It forms a species-rich habitat for animals and plants. What exactly is blooming there? Which animals live here? The adventure stations at selected rest areas provide answers. Here we learn how the Rhön cultural landscape came into being and how it is cared for and preserved. With great pictures in mind and new knowledge, we return to our starting point, the Ulmenstein car park.
- Saturday/Sunday: Afternoon to early evening in hiking weather (flexible depending on weather conditions)
- From May to October
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.
