    The watchdog is the remnant of a former volcanic vent. From here you have a great 360 ° view of the mountains and valleys of the Rhön. Unfortunately, our beagle was not allowed up and had to wait in front of the fence, as the hilltop is populated by mountain goats. More information:üppel
    Note: Who should have a compass and try this on the mountain ...

    Shortly before the summit, the 3 concrete steps on the left you come to two benches.

    On the way back from the Wachtküppel there is a large rock wall in the forest. Go over the intersecting path and turn slightly right into the small forest path. After about 50 meters, climb down a steep slope on the left. Attention good shoes needed.

    A small highlight in the Rhön ... the climbing of the mountain is also for beginner a solvable task. Above that, a great 360 degree view awaits you.
