    The mostly unwooded hilltop with a gently sloping slope offers a wide view. Ascents from several directions as well as interesting circular routes are possible.

    The best way to get to the Himmeldunkberg is from the parking lot of the Schwedenwall, directly or, depending on your fitness level, to the side of the Hohe Hölle, the view from there is fantastic and invites you to relax.

    The Himmeldunkberg is almost 888 meters above sea level. NN the tenth highest mountain in the Rhön. Together with the neighboring, slightly higher Hohe Hölle, this is the north-eastern end of the Dammersfeld massif.

    Since it can only be climbed "on foot", a "forgotten mountain" of the Rhön, but at almost 888 meters you have a nice view after the proper ascent
