At the Rhönklubhütte Schweinfurter Haus and at the Thüringer Hütte there are options for dining.
Safety informationSometimes there are steep inclines and in bad weather there is a risk of slipping, which is why it is only recommended to walk with sturdy shoes. The trail is unsuitable for strollers and wheelchair users.
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 outdoor 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.
Tips and hintsFurther information can be found on the following website: Gangolfsberg nature trail (in German)
