Hiking on the Mottener
Activities can commence right at our doorstep. The premium trail "Der Mottener" passes directly by our house.
On old sunken roads, earth paths, and meadow trails, you can marvel at the beautiful landscape during this delightful circular hike.
Along the way, you'll reach the geotope Pilsterfelsen with the Sauerbrunnen (acidic spring), old weather crosses, and a small biotope where the beaver has made its home. Crossing the watershed between the Rhine and Weser rivers, the trail leads to the observation tower on Mottener Haube. Here, a fantastic view awaits you over the mountains of the Rhön.
The Rhön has many attractions for those interested in culture. Ranging from history tours, musicals, events staged in a baroque setting in Fulda, open air concerts with a regal feel in Bad Kissingen to the theatre town of Meiningen, there is something for everyone.
You can also explore the educational trails embedded in the magnificent countryside or visit places of historical/cultural interest in the Rhön, such as Point Alpha and a variety of museums and important buildings from different eras.
Not every holiday has to be an action holiday. The hotel’s proximity to Bad Brückenau, Bad Kissingen, Bad Neustadt and also Fulda allows guests who would rather relax and make use of the region’s wellness amenities to have a relaxing time.
