The Wasserkuppe offers its visitors a wide range of sports and leisure activities.

While the summer toboggan runs and gliding are usually closed in winter, paragliding, for example, is possible all year round.

The UNESCO biosphere reserve Rhön is considered one of the most beautiful hiking regions in Germany.

The highlight of the Wasserkuppe – not only for children – are the summer toboggan runs, the Rhön bobsleigh and other attractions on the Märchenwiese.

Those who like sports can climb in the climbing forest or explore the low mountain range on an e-bike tour.
