The 11.5 km long hike starts at the Arkadensteg am Kurgarten in Bad Kissingen.

After a short ascent you reach the Ludwigsturm, which offers great views over Bad Kissingen again and again, before the path leads into the quiet Klauswald

The Wildlife-Park Klaushof invites to a visit and a rest - as guests of deer and splashing otters. Passing mighty, centuries-old oaks, you reach the idyllic Kaskadental, accompanied by the babbling of the Kaskadentalbach. In the further course of the route you will also pass the graduation tower. A stop here is always worthwhile to take a deep breath and enjoy the salty air.

From here you continue along the Franconian Saale back to the center of Bad Kissingen to the starting point of the hike.

Author’s recommendation

The approximately 30 hectare Klaushof Wildlife Park is perfect for a family outing regardless of the hike. Under optimal living conditions, one can marvel at native wild animals and domestic breeds here.

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.
