The Rhön

The Rhön holiday region – discover the land of huge panoramas!

if you want to...

feel at ease from the bottom of your heart, you should head to the Rhön as quickly as possible. There's no need to leap into the air right away, like the paragliders that launch themselves from the Wasserkuppe - the Rhön's highest mountain. The unique cultural landscape, characterised by its countless non-forested peaks, gently valley, moors and unique flora and fauna, provides stunning panoramas and gives your thoughts flight.

In the very heart of Germany, discover an Eldorado for the soul and Germany's top hiking destination. Over 6,000 kilometres of well-signposted hiking trails invite you to take some active relaxation. But not only that: the wide range of activities on offer in the Rhön also includes golf, cycling trips, climbing, horse riding, canoeing, paragliding and lots of places to swim. Those looking to be pampered should visit one of the eight spa baths. As well as top class treatment for a wide range of symptoms, they also offer premium pampering packages. From anti-aging and Ayurveda to brine and thalassotherapy baths and even hiking for vitality and wellness - your hosts' services know few bounds. A dense network of modern wellness, brine and leisure pools with attractive sauna complexes provide the finishing touches to your rejuvenating holiday. And all of it at prices that will leave you with plenty of spending money, too! Culture fans can discover the Baroque town of Fulda, visit the famous theatre town of Meiningen or experience the "Kissinger Sommer". And because eating and drinking are what keep body and soul together, the people of the Rhön offer their guests regional specialities from haute cuisine to hearty fare in their friendly restaurants. The use of regional produce is particularly valued here. To drink: fresh apple juices, fizzy water, fresh beer or sparkling wine - all from local sources, of course. After an exciting or relaxing day, recharge your batteries with friendly hosts who do everything to make you feel at home. You can choose to stay in one of the many farmstays and guesthouses, a cosy holiday cottage, your own caravan or a stylish hotel: a good night's sleep is guaranteed in the Rhön whatever you choose.
