A winter hike on the Kunstmeile Poppenhausen - the perfect combination of views, culture and hiking pleasure. There are two popular places to stop for refreshments on the way, where you can recover from the winter temperatures and have a warm drink or a meal.

You too can discover the Rhön on a walk along the art mile in her winter dress.

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.
