The unique cultural landscape of the Rhön – shaped by bare hilltops, lovely valleys, moors and hedgerows – encourages your eyes and thoughts to roam free. Valuable habitats and the rare flora and fauna saw the Rhön become a recognised biosphere reserve in 1991. Over 6,000 km of marked hiking trails invite you to enjoy some active relaxation in this region where three states meet. Here you can find a selection of the hiking trails available in the Rhön.
