If you want to take a walk in the village of Oberelsbach at the foot of the Langen Rhön, this is the place to be. Starting from Oberelsbach, we continue along the babbling Elsbach to Unterelsbach.

If you want to get back to your starting point, you can walk back the route.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to the biosphere center "Haus der Langen Rhön" should not be missed. There you will find interesting facts about the Rhön and regional products to discover!

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

The snow hotline provides information about the winter conditions in the Rhön.
