From the Köpfchen car park, the gravel paths take you through the forest. With this Rhön circular route, you have the choice between a small circular route of 5.8 km (approx. 2 hours) and a large circular route of 7.4 km (approx. 2 ½ hours). We recommend the detour (side trail) to the Auersburg castle ruins with a fantastic view from the observation tower there.

Safety information

The Rhön's tourist ways are usually also used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, riders, cross -country skiers, etc.).

We ask all active natural athletes to be taken into account. The same naturally also applies to nature - this is worth protecting. In the Rhön, natural sports should therefore only be operated in daylight.
