    The border between Bavaria and Hesse runs over the Heidelstein. If you take the time and take a break here, you can enjoy a wonderful view over the Lange Rhön. The Kreuzberg is easily recognizable by the masts in a southern direction. If visibility is good, the Hohe Meißner can be seen in the north, the Thuringian Forest in the east and the Große Feldberg in the west.

    Please be careful when dealing with nature, especially here in the nature reserve. Take the beautiful pictures and memories with you, but above all the garbage and always stay on the paths. Thanks a lot.

    Great view on the climb towards Grabfeld and Thuringia, on the other side towards Kreuzberg, Arnsberg and Hessian Rhön.

    The television station Heidelstein was visited by us in relatively strong winds, very impressive that this building defies the forces!

    Whenever I have been in the Rhön in the past few years, a hike over the Heidelstein was part of the program. Since the Heidelstein is not overcrowded, the slogan “Rhön - the open distant” applies particularly well up here. Up here, quasi "On Top of the World", it is always worth stopping and letting your gaze wander over the neighboring Kreuzberg and the Wasserkuppe. Depending on the weather, you can see as far as the Thuringian Forest and the upstream Henneberg, Rhömhild and Dollmar. In the south and southwest the Spessart attracts and in the west the Vogelsberg.

    Wonderful view, soft Rhöner mats, on which running is great fun, and the rough, romantic look of the Hochrhön. A dream.
