God said, "let there be light". But Peter couldn't find the switch. Nonsense, that was completely different! The story of creation is told and brought to life for children along this path.

The small circuit runs through Föhlritz along the forest and meadows and halfway there is an idyllic refuge - ideal for a leisurely snack break. The seven interactive stations show the entire story of creation explained for children. The well-known saying "Let there be light" is illustrated, for example, by a visual axis in spectral colors. At the fountain the children can play with the water and not only understand the creation of the plants and trees through the labeling of the trees, but also learn the tree species for school at the same time. The sun, moon and stars can be found in a small hiking hut and the feeling of being between heaven and earth can be experienced while rocking. Animal carvings embody the diversity of animals of all kinds. At the last stop, the mind finally gets some peace, because here the whole family can relax on sky beds. But not only the loungers are fantastic! The views of the upper Feldatal, the Thuringian Forrest and the Hessian Rhön are unbelievable to breathtaking.

Author’s recommendation

The detour along the Öchse to the ruins of Sankt Annen should definitely be planned for hiking. For children, playing at the Kläschenbrunnen is a real highlight.

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.
