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.
Safety informationThe 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.
