Well-known artists from home and abroad have created sculptures along this themed trail that you cannot otherwise find in the Rhön. So it is not surprising that the 690 m high art mile has established itself as one of the most popular walking and hiking trails in the Rhön.

The sculptures are on the connecting path between Maulkuppe and Grabenhöfchen. A brochure with photographs of the individual works of art and descriptions of the artists' portrayal of what your work is about can be requested from the Poppenhausen Tourist Information.

Safety information

The tourist routes of the Rhön are mostly used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, riders, cross-country skiers, etc.).

We ask all active nature sports enthusiasts to show consideration for one another. The same applies, of course, to nature - it is worth protecting. In the Rhön, therefore, nature sports should only be practiced in daylight on designated paths and areas.
