Habelberg circuit - hike around the Habelberg with special vantage points on the Heufeld and the Habelstein.

The volcanic rock formation is particularly worth a visit - pure nature.

The route over the Habelberg is one of the most challenging but promising hikes around Tann. Over the rock massif on the Habelstein (680 m) with a wonderful view, it goes past the village of Habel over the Seeles and Kothenberg. On the descent to Neuswarts, you will be amply rewarded for the hardships of the ascent with fantastic views of the Hessisches Kegelspiel and further into the Werratal.

There are longer inclines and asphalt routes to be accepted.

Author’s recommendation

A short detour to the "Habelstein" vantage point should definitely be planned. Please note the signage on site.

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.

Destination

Tann (Rhön), market square

Turn-by-turn directions

From the market square, the path initially leads downhill to the Ulsteraue. After crossing the Ulster, the path on the Habelberg goes uphill to the rock massif on the Habelstein and from here you can enjoy the view of the Kuppenrhön and the little village of Habel. Follow the path downhill to the Heufeld vantage point with a wonderful view of the Hessian skittles. Passing the village of Habel, it goes over the Seelesberg and Kothenberg in the direction of Neuswarts. Passing the natural monument of the old hat beeches, the view on the descent to Neuswarts extends far into the Werra valley to the potash heaps of Unterbreizbach and Phillipstal. You reach the starting point in Tann via Günthers and the Hasenwald.
