    On the ridge line of Haßberge and thus also on the Rennweg near Eichelsdorf is the Schwedenschanze. A ring wall, about 500 meters above sea level. NN, around 500 BC Was created and was probably already used by the Celts as a place of worship and refuge. Today you can enjoy a great view over the Haßberge from a 28 meter high lookout tower and stop in the Dr.-Krahmer Hütte.

    At Hofheim above Eichelsdorf, with 487 m above sea level, was prehistoric a refuge. The ring-like fortifications of this defensive system are still visible in the terrain as Erdwälle and reconstructed in their function. From the observation tower, which was built in 2001, you have a beautiful view of the "Hofheimer basin", Bavarian and Thuringian Rhön, Franconian Alb, Steigerwald and Schweinfurter country.
    Opening hours of the tower: from mid-April to mid-October.

    As far as I know, the hut is "only" open on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
