Hochrhöner Trail - Through the land of endless horizons

Treeless peaks with wide, panoramic views are the trademark of the Rhön hills, the ‘land of endless horizons’. The Hochrhöner Trail climbs Mount Wasserkuppe, Mount Kreuzberg and Mount Ellenbogen – the highest elevations in the Rhön hills.


Tip: Mount Wasserkuppe

At 950m above sea level, Mount Wasserkuppe is the highest and best known peak in the Rhön hills. It attracts visitors from far and wide, whatever the season: for sledding, snowboarding, snowkiting and downhill or cross-country skiing in winter, for walking and tobogganing in summer.
