The long-distance hike „Der Hochrhöner“ starts in Bad Kissingen and ends in Bad Salzungen. In the middle of the tour, the trail splits into a western and an öeastern route. The variant described here, also called Route „Lange Rhön”, leads past the black moor, Frankenhain and Zella until both variants meet again near Andenhausen.
The premium hiking trail „Der Hochrhöner“ leads us on 120 km through the Rhön Biosphere Reserve. We climb the highest elevations of the low mountain range, namely Wasserkuppe, Kreuzberg, Heidelstein and Ellenbogen. In addition to many vantage points, we pass cultural highlights such as the spa town of Bad Kissingen, the Franciscan monastery on the Kreuzberg and Bad Salzungen. The beauty of the Rhön landscape is revealed to us on the Wasserkuppe, where the cradle of gliding lies, and on the legendary rocky ridge of Milsenburg Castle. We divide the tour „Lange Rhön” into a total of eight stages and always follow the signposts – a yellow „Ö” on a white background. After Oberweißenbrunn, we head north-east to follow the eastern route of the Hochrhöner described here.
