The volcanic Vogelsberg does not represent a large volcano, but consists of many hundred breakouts. It extends in the center of Hesse over 2500 square kilometers between Gießen, Lauterbach, Schlüchtern, Büdingen and Friedberg with foothills to Frankfurt and Hanau. The main activity took place 15 to 17 million years ago, with sometimes longer interruptions. It is the age of the Tertiary, in which the mammals unfolded after the extinction of the dinosaurs. Volcanism is associated with the collision of Africa with Europe.

The treetop path is a nice and interesting change for young and old. With an ADAC membership card, there is even a discount on the entrance fee to the treetop path. Some locations invite you to linger whether indoors or outdoors. There is also a summer toboggan run where some can let off steam.

The Hoherodskopf is an extensively developed area with a climbing park, tree top path, summer toboggan run, playground, adventure museum, forest mini golf and a large selection of restaurants. Only that it is also a motorcycle highlight disturbs something.
