The hike leads from Geba to the Rhönfrieden refuge, with a fantastic view over the Rhön. In the quiet season, when many animals and plants have their rest time, we humans also discover a new peace on the hikes through the sleepy nature.

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.
