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.

Public transport

The "Köpfchen" hiking car park is not accessible by public transport.

Alternatively, the tour can be started from Simmershausen. The following LNG Fulda bus line stops at the two bus stops there:

  • Line 32: (Tann-) Simmershausen - Hilders - Reulbach - Fulda

Getting there

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. From now on, follow the signs to Simmershausen. This turns right shortly after a farmstead and right again in Hilders. The hiking car park is on the left-hand side of the road on the connecting road to Simmershausen.
