Up the "Kirchstraße" - in front of the church left to the beech grove - on to the "Ritterschlucht" with ornithological path. Continue to the right, following the ornithological path to the paved path, down the valley - left on the meadow path to the local road - past the church to the community center.
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.
Hilders can be reached by car via the A7. Leave the autobahn at exit 92 Fulda-Mitte. Then drive onto the B458 in the direction of Hilders. When you reach the Hilders district of Batten, turn left towards Hilders. Turn right at the traffic light and do not follow the main road that bends shortly after, but instead turn left into Marienstrasse. Shortly afterwards you turn left into Kolpingstraße and you will find the public car park on the left-hand side.
