Mountain Biking Highlight
The name can be traced back to a mention in the determination of the limits of the game of Hugimuododung (Old High German), awarded by King Henry IV in 1059 the Abbey of Fulda, which means 'mountain of the wife Hugimuot'. In Middle High German it became Hügemodetunc, Hümededunc, Himmeldunk. The sometimes still encountered designation "Himmeldankberg" goes back to an incorrect attribution by law firms and cartographers.
