Virtually the whole of the Rhön region opens up along the Saale river in Franconia, on the banks of the Sinn and beside the delightful little Streu. The Rhön hills provide some more strenuous sections for which cyclists are rewarded with fantastic panoramic views. The centuries-old cultivation of the land between the river Main and Rhön hills has given rise to a richly varied landscape characterised by forests and copses, villages, farmland and orchards. This long-distance cycle route links a number of attractions including the five spa resorts in the Bavarian Rhön with the hugely popular town of Bad Kissingen at its northern tip. Terrain: the sometimes hilly route runs mainly on asphalt or crushed brick/stone and is mostly traffic-free. There is also an excellent infrastructure for visitors. Scenery: the route is dominated by the valleys of the Saale and its tributaries, the Sinn and the Streu, and runs along the edge of the Hohe Rhön hills.
