Hiking: Source of the Fulda

The town of Gersfeld is the only real convenient gateway to the Rhön as it has one of the region's few train stations. There are several interesting destinations near Gersfeld, including the Red Moor and the Source of the Fulda River. However, these don't appear on this hike as we are focused on traveling down the charmingly pastoral Fulda valley as it slowly becomes a river. Along the way, there are vistas of the rolling Rhön highlands and the ruins of the ancient Ebersberg Castle.


Hiking: Timeless Villages of the Upper Fulda

The Fulda valley between Kassel and Fulda City is a remarkably beautiful landscape. However, much of it has been set aside for industrial or residential development. Between Bad Hersfeld and Fulda, though, the river valley is largely rural and forested in character with only small villages in between. This hike takes you through some of the timeless towns that once separated the Prince-Abbots of Fulda and the Prince-Abbots of Hersfeld.
