KEEN Footwear planned a hike.
February 2, 2021
Today a comparatively leisurely stage of your Hochrhön adventure is on the program. You march from Dermbach to Bernshausen. Almost twelve wonderfully varied kilometers, which have so many highlights in store for you, are waiting for you.From Dermbach you follow a path that leads you on the slope of the Gläserberg to Glattbach. Not far from the heart of the village, you will meet for the first time a figure that is typical of the Rhön. The "Rhönpaulus" sits on a resting place with great views. Of course, he has his treasure chest with him, because the good man is known for his many, but always non-violent, attacks on wealthy farmers. You are welcome to keep the “Robin Hood of the Rhön” company for a while before you continue your hike.You cross the Felda river and soon begin to climb towards the “Ibengarten” nature reserve. The branches of old yew trees - one of them a proud 500 years old - form a tunnel that leads you protectively towards Wiesenthal. After you've passed the place, the path rises again. You hike up a slope over meadows.Through wonderful forest, you finally reach the summit of the Horn mountain. Up here you will once again have unique views of Roßdorf and the 1866 battlefield on Nebelberg. Then you climb down through a beautiful beech forest and pave your way to today's stage destination Bernshausen.
