It should be one of the largest occurrences of the spring Adonisröschen in completely Germany, which is at the Sodenberg with Hammelburg. Associated with countless Kühchenschellen and other spring bloomers lures the beautiful flower in every spring, the nature lovers in droves. It's worth it!!

Location: west of Hammelburg between the communities of Ochsental and WeickersgrübenHeight: 481 m above sea level NN
Panorama: when the weather is clear, a comprehensive view of the Franconian region: to the north to the Hohe Rhön to the Kreuzberg, to the east to the Hassberge and Steigerwald and to the west to the SpessartNature: The largest part of the Sodenberg is now part of the Rhön Nature Park; The Spessart Nature Park joins in the direction of Weickersgrüben. Rare types of plants are native here, such as spring cups, pasque flowers and the strictly protected adonis vernalis, which transform the otherwise rather barren landscape into a blooming sea in spring. The Sodenberg also offers a habitat for numerous breeding bird species, butterflies, grasshoppers and other animals.

The entire Sodenberg (including the neighboring Gansberg / Tannenberg) is worth a trip all year round. Regardless of whether it is about the rare Adonis rose and other flowers, the former basalt works (deep pit) including ruins or simply a beautiful view or interesting cycling and hiking routes.Starting points are the very remote Ochsenthal near Morlesau in the north, Obereschenbach on the B27 in the southeast and Weikersgrüben on the MSP17 in the west.For non-residents coming from the A7 Kassel-Würzburg:At Hammelburg (exit 97) down to the west (is the B287) past Hammelburg (then the B27) for another approx. 5 km in the direction of Karlstadt / Gemünden.
