    The Schafstein is really worth a visit! ⛰🤩 several Rhön circular routes lead here or the extra tour Guckaisee. Just enjoy the view from the bench.

    Beautiful bench amidst boulders. When the weather is nice you have a wonderful view. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do that in the rain. Still a very nice place!

    Great area.
    This hike was a real treat.
    You don't really know where to look first.
    Pure nature and absolutely worth protecting.

    The Schafstein (831 m) has been a nature reserve since 1930 and is now the core zone of the Rhön biosphere reserve. The national geotope has the largest basalt block field in the Rhön. This impressive natural wonder can only be reached on foot. The views of Wüstensachsen and Reulbach with the Milseburg in the background are simply fascinating. Narrow paths lead on the circular route through an enchanting forest, some of whose beeches are over 150 years old.

    Very interesting to look at this sea of stones. For hikers there is also a stamp for the hiking book

    Here on the Schafstein there is a so-called Blocksteinmeer made of basalt stones, on which unique and rare mosses and lichens (= mixture of mushrooms + algae) grow. Since no trees grow in the stone sea, you have a fabulous view of the place.

    It is the combination of the basalt boulders at your feet and the far-reaching views that makes the Schafstein a special place and invites you to linger.

    A detour on the circular hiking trail around the Wasserkuppe is worthwhile. We were rewarded with a great view.
