    Your adventure (shortened) Hochrhöner begins in the heart of Oberweißbrunn. You can easily reach the place by public transport, which is why - once you have arrived - you can start walking straight away.It goes straight up! On the Himmeldunkberg, the Rhön sheep, the first typical inhabitants of this region, await you. Over its grassy slopes and accompanied by a wonderful view, you march from here to the Red Moor. The high moor is a nature reserve - the small moor lake and the wooden walkways that are lovingly placed in nature are just the right prelude to your upcoming hike.At the end of the moor, the Hochrhöner finally divides into two routes. You follow the Kuppenrhön route to the west and - as soon as the forest opens up - you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Wasserkuppe. At 950 meters, it is the highest point in the Rhön. And today your goal too.So the path leads you exactly there. On the way you will pass the source of the Fulda and a couple of impressive rock formations. When you arrive at the Wasserkuppe, in addition to the glider museum, weather station, climbing park and the like, a hotel (deutscher-flieger.de) awaits you where you can check in for the night. Because that can be spent quite well with the offer up here.

    Hello, in principle you are right that your toes are itchy.
    For me something like that is Not feasible at the moment. 1. Overnight where? - due to Corona and
    2. I still have to have vacation.
    By the way, the Rennsteig - 110km from Starting at ESA, I have already hiked with my wife for 5 days.
    As a personal highlight, I have already covered the 100km around Jena several times non-stop.
    Let's see what the future brings and what makes health - then I'll see.
    Every hiker - whether young or old, whether short or long journeys: I give everyone my full respect and respect.
    We want: to be outside with Mother Nature, to relax and exchange ideas.
    Now I close with the Rennsteig greeting: Gut Runst. 🥾
