    We buy next door in the store again and again postcards. There is rarely such a good selection of beautiful postcards.

    The hotel has a self-service restaurant open from Thursday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm. The charm of the 1920s, the hotel exudes the spray already. A dream!

    There is always a lot going on here. Unfortunately, the flight noise during the hiking tours is not always nice.

    The airport on the Wasserkuppe is at the place where glider flying is said to have been "invented". Already in 1911, gliding pioneers started their first flight tests with gliders on tree-free Wasserkuppe in the Hessian Rhön. Over time, the site became a popular airport for gliders and small motor planes.
