  • Kai

    With 950 meters the highest mountain of Hessen and accordingly beautiful view over large parts of the Rhön. Here you can watch the paragliders and gliders while taking a break from the climb.

    Further east of the summit there are restaurants and two farmers or regional shops with a nice assortment and not only for children a small amusement park with summer toboggan run and more.

    The Wasserkuppe is always a sporting destination, whether on foot or by bike. Magnificent views of the Rhön and, if the weather is suitable, a distant view of the neighboring low mountain ranges: Vogelsberg, Knüll, Thuringian Forest and Spessart.

    Great view from up here. In the Radom there is a museum for espionage. Very interesting.

    A visit to the Rhön is simply incomplete without exploring the Wasserkuppe. The all-round view is incomparable.

    The most famous and striking point on the Wasserkuppe. There is almost always a strong wind up here, so the temperatures still feel a bit lower in the cold season.

    Beautiful panoramic path around the Radom, which can look incredibly far in clear weather.

    As the highest mountain in the "Land of Open Distant Areas" (Rhön), the Wasserkuppe naturally occupies an exposed position. As the start, stopover or destination, the highest mountain in Hesse is worth a visit in every season. The Wasserkuppe offers an incredible variety of nature and landscapes in the Rhön Biosphere Reserve for nature lovers who are looking for peace, but is also a magnet for athletes, sailors and skiers.

    Alone the view, worth the summit trail. At the weekend, however, there is already a strong "traffic" to expect! ;-)
