The path leads parallel to the Extratour "Kreuzbergtour" past the statue of the village saint Kilian, which was created in 1992 by the sculptor Herbert Holzheimer from Langenleiten at the end of the land consolidation. From the seating area above the Hochkreuz there are wonderful views.

Soon you will reach the "Weinstraße", a former trade route. From here the view sweeps over the large "Salzforst" forest area to the Schweinfurt region. The circular route follows this old ravine a good bit. Again a bench invites you to pause and enjoy the panorama. The view stretches from Kreuzberg over the Black Mountains, the southern Rhön villages to the "Salzforst".

Further on the ravine you hike through rustic, dry forests. In some places water seeps up from the ground and paves its way. Sturdy shoes are a pleasure to have.

Back to the starting point of the hiking tour, it goes lively downhill, across meadows lined with apple trees, past the forest playground up to the Kilianshof village square.

Author’s recommendation

If you still have time and are not afraid of steps, make a detour to "Küppel". Turn off at the statue of the saint and soon reach the staircase that leads up to the summit cross. At the beginning of July, the village patronage "Kiliani" is traditionally celebrated with a mountain mass.

On the village square, it is worth looking into the art window. Local artists present a temporary exhibition here.

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.
