From here it goes out of town along Bad Kissingen's popular golf club (Attention golf balls! Please ensure your own safety.) At the Franconian Saale. The Wichtelhöhlen are hidden here on the steep slope of the Franconian Saale Valley: around 20 rock formations of different sizes and small caves made of red sandstone.
The Wichtelhöhlenhütte in the middle of a refreshing forest offers a good resting place - and with a lot of luck you might even see a little pixie.
Through the quiet forest and along fields and meadows, it finally goes back down towards the center and starting point.
Safety informationThe 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.
