The route first leads along the Ulstertalradweg to Thaiden. There you hike up in the direction of the Rhönwald to the Thaidener Rhönklubhütte. From there the path - always with a view of the Ulstertal - goes to the Battener Rhönklubhütte. You then hike back downhill to Batten.

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.
