Now it goes along the mountain flank above Wendershausen before using part of the Ulstertalradweg to Mollartshof. Via Lahrbach (with a stop for refreshments) you hike to the local recreation area "Gänskutte" with Rhönklubhütte and barbecue area, which is hidden in a mixed forest conservation area. Here you can relax at a small pond and prepare for the second part of the hike.
A little later on the hiking trail, hikers reach the viewpoint and the natural monument "Kugelbaum", an ancient, isolated sycamore tree. Wonderful views of the Ulster Valley and the Kuppenrhön open up from this location.
The route then goes via the small hamlet of Herdathurm to Wendershausen and back to Tann.
Safety informationThe 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.
