We start our tour at the Thüringer Hütte and hike past the snow-covered Rhön winter forest in the direction of open countryside. Along the way, we are rewarded with a view of the open distance of the Long Rhön. Through free corridor it goes back to the starting point. The Thüringer Hütte invites you to stop off afterwards.

Author’s recommendation

 The detour to the unusual St. Francis Chapel at the Thüringer Hütte is well worth it.

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.
