50 km hike in the Rhön: an unforgettable experience

By 24. May 2024News

Last weekend we undertook an impressive 50 km hike in the picturesque Rhön. We set off from Fladungen railway station in a good mood at 7.45 am. The weather was ideal for hiking and the views with the clouds were simply breathtaking!

The route planned by Uwe took us across wide meadows and idyllic hiking trails, along country roads and through varied terrain passing the Black Moor, Schafstein (831 metres above sea level) to the Wasserkuppe, the highest point of our hike at 950 metres. We took a well-earned snack break there and two more hikers joined our group. From the Wasserkuppe, we had a fantastic view over the beautiful landscape of the Rhön.
The way back took us through the Red Moor, occasionally across country through high grass and rough terrain, until we reached the Silbersee. Moderate rain set in over the last few kilometres when we arrived back at Fladungen station at around 7.00 pm.

Exhausted, but happy and proud to have completed the 50-kilometre hike, we ended the evening with a delicious meal and a good atmosphere.

This hike was a fantastic experience that brought us closer to the beauty of the Rhön and will certainly remain in our memories for a long time to come. We are already looking forward to the next tour!
