Countless pilgrims walked this path as early as the 19th century. The 456 meter high Gehilfersberg is a basalt cone. It belongs to the Hessian bowling game. In the 16th century there was a cross on the summit, which was called "St. Gehülff". It gave the mountain its name.

Author’s recommendation

The collegiate church on the Rasdorfer Anger is always worth a visit.
