The “Märchenwiese” (fairytale meadow) on the Wasserkuppe is certainly one of the greatest attractions the Rhön has to offer for children:

Racy descents on the summer toboggan runs, with the Rhön bob or on the “Hexenbesen” (witches’ broom) are unforgettable experiences.

The Wasserkuppe e-bike rental company offers special e-mountain bikes for children for joint bike tours.

The swimming lake Guckaisee at the foot of the Wasserkuppe offers refreshment on hot summer days – and plenty of space to play.

Teenagers from the age of 14 can already try out or learn paragliding. Younger children can take off on a sightseeing flight with a glider or as a tandem paragliding passenger.
