The starting point of this circular hike is at the Ziegelhof near Poppenhausen. From there, the hiking trail leads across several farmsteads to the Teufelsstein (729m). If you want, you can take a short detour to the top of the mountain. But even from the edge of the forest you can already enjoy a fantastic view of the distance.

Shortly after the Teufelsstein, the path turns onto the Poppenhausen Kunsmeile. Numerous works of art by international artists can be viewed on this largely asphalted section of the path as far as the Fuldaer Haus. This is a popular excursion point for the localities, especially on weekends.

On the way back to the starting point of the tour, there is a real specialty in the Rhön, the stone wall. According to its name, the mountain with 646 meters of altitude offers one of the few natural climbing rocks in the Rhön that can also be offered for lead climbers. The path runs through a small wooded area back to the Ziegelhof.

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.
