Hiking Highlight

  • UdoS

    One of the two sources of the big Main, once red and once white. Here it begins until it ends at Wiesbaden in the Rhine after a good 500km. Just a must visit for hikers in the region to then even the Weißmainfelsen (beautiful view) to climb.

    This source with the beautiful setting and rest stop is a must for a hiker on the Ochsenkopf. From here you can also start the trail at the clearly red colored White Main direction Bischofsgrün.

    White and Red Main unite at Kulmbach to the Main which later flows into the Rhine. This then in the North Sea.
    The red Main is the water poorer river, but longer. Red Main about 72km, white Main about 52km.

    You have to (if you're on the way to the Ochsenkopf anyway) have seen - but is a bit inconspicuous (almost ran past it). The Weißmainquelle is the origin of the White Main

    Interesting, with which small amount here a part of the Mains begins. Picturesque in the middle of the forest and summer (refreshment) as winter (ice magic) eventful.
