The winter hiking trail leads hikers from Poppenhausen (Wasserkuppe) to the popular lake. On the 3.6 kilometers you walk through the wintry landscape of the Rhön. During this time of year, many animal species are also in their hibernation. The walk is characterized by silence and plenty of time for your own thoughts.
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.
