Extratour Keltenpfad – Wandern in der Rhön
Rhön planned a hike.
January 1, 2010
With this demanding tour, you will follow the traces of the Celts in the Rhön and discover 2,500-year-old remains of Celtic fortifications in many places. A special natural highlight are the mighty basalt columns that tower up on Dietrichsberg.The tour begins in the center of your Celtic voyage of discovery: in the Keltendorf near Sünna. Here you can experience Celtic life in traditional houses and huts and even spend the night. The Celtic path leads you through shady beech forests up to the Öchsenberg with its imposing summit cross. The summit was shaped by basalt mining for decades. In the Öchsenberghütte there are homemade cakes and fat bread to strengthen you. Note that the hut is only open on Sundays and on Thuringian holidays.After the descent, you first stand in front of a sea of moss-covered basalt blocks, then you follow gently undulating paths and you can find exciting information about Celtic finds and the life of the Celts in the region on numerous information boards. The ascent to Dietrichsberg is tough again, but the unique basalt columns created by volcanic activity make up for the effort.If you have had enough of the unique nature, the legendary mountain tends to only go downhill and back to the Keltendorf.
