The tour starts in the Bad Bockleter district of Aschach, which is particularly known for the museums in the castle there. From there, the path goes counter-clockwise past littered orchards. Then the path leads through a loose forest area in a northerly direction past Bad Bocklet.
Now we drive through the valleys of the Franconian Saale and the Premich. The drive through the river valleys is particularly pleasant. Not far from the village of Premich, the tour turns south. The route now leads along the edge of the forest to Frauenroth.
The monastery church in Frauenroth is known far beyond the borders of the region. The decor of the church impresses not only cultural historians, but also numerous visitors.
Finally, the circuit leads back to Aschach and the museums there.
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 outdoor sports enthusiasts to be considerate of each other. 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.
- In the Rhön, the paths are shared. With mutual consideration, nobody has to be angry.
- It rides best on trails and paths. Across the meadow - you don't do it!
- Take the memory with you and your trash!
- Never go faster than you can stop.
- At night (and in winter) the forest belongs to the animals.
We recommend that you only ride the mountain bike trails in the summer season (May-October).
