The short trail leads skaters from the outskirts of Frankenheim, the highest town in the Rhön, to the trail network of the Thuringian High Rhön. If the weather is right, you can have a great, wide view of the surrounding Rhön from the open areas.

Safety information

The tourist paths of the Rhön are mostly used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, horse riders, cross-country skiers, etc.).

We ask all active nature sports enthusiasts to show consideration for one another. Of course, the same applies to nature - it is worth protecting. In the Rhön, nature sports should therefore only be practiced in daylight on designated paths and areas.

Tips and hints

Information on prepared winter hiking trails can be obtained from the snow hotline.
