Hut hikes are always a special event. This special experience is immersed again in the wintry clothes of the Rhön on the winter hiking trail. Who wouldn't want to do the tour?

The hike starts at the Würzburger Haus, which has been welcoming and serving guests since 1938. In addition to regional cuisine, you can also stay overnight in the Würzburger Haus.

The Berghaus Rhön is even older, having been built in 1932. In the early years of the building, it served as a canteen and accommodation for miners. When mining gradually became less attractive and ultimately had to be abandoned, the district of Bad Kissingen took over the building. Since 1972, the Berghaus Rhön has become a hiking destination in the Rhön. Today, Bavarian cuisine and accommodation is offered there.

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.
