If you haven't had enough of the fantastically snowy backdrop of the Rhön, you can continue on the adjoining winter hiking trail opposite the street at the Schornhecke.
If the hiking weather is good at the weekend, the Schornhecke information mobile is open at the local car park. There you can find interesting brochures on the Rhön biosphere reserve.
Safety informationStarting from the Schornhecke car park, the road must be crossed.
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 hintsThe snow hotline provides information about the winter conditions in the Rhön.
