The starting point of the almost 7 km long circular route is the arcade footbridge in the Bad Kissingen spa garden,

From there it leads through the beautiful rose garden, in which almost 125 species of roses bloom in summer. You will also find the multimedia fountain here, where you can marvel at touching water choreographies and regular projector shows.

The path continues along the Franconian Saale to the round fountain and the impressive graduation tower. Some deep, conscious breaths are particularly worthwhile here, because the brine-containing air generated by the grading is particularly health-promoting.

Passing the airport, you walk into the spacious green areas of the Luitpoldpark. Another architectural highlight of Bad Kissingen awaits you at the spa garden: the light-flooded walk and fountain hall. Here healing water gushes out of the famous twin fountains and is poured out regularly by the fountain women.

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.
