This circular route is the focus of the Holzberghof and the nature reserve of the Langen Rhön. Starting from the hiking car park, you will reach the Holzberghof just a few meters later. The former hunting lodge now houses a restaurant and a small hotel.

It also goes straight up to the Rhone high plateau. Many protected animal and plant species can now relax in the Lange Rhön nature reserve. The open areas were kept free by deforestation and subsequent years of cultivation with grazing animals and thus developed into the typical Rhön landscape today.

After circumnavigating the Hohe Dalle we walk to the Alte Landwehr, where a great view opens up - for example to the Heidelstein, a 926m high mountain, which is difficult to overlook thanks to a transmission mast. Then it goes back to the starting point.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to the Holzberghof or a short detour to the path to the Teufelsmühle should not be missed.

Safety information

The tourist paths of the Rhön are mostly used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, horse riders, cross-country skiers, etc.).

We ask all active nature sports enthusiasts to show consideration for one another. Of course, the same applies to nature - it is worth protecting. In the Rhön, nature sports should therefore only be practiced in daylight on designated paths and areas.
