We start in Hofbieber and drive towards Nässetal. On the way there we already have a first beautiful view towards Fulda, at the point where the path branches 90 ° to the right. We reach Morles via partially unpaved, well drivable paths. From here it goes on dirt roads, in a beautiful landscape, to Mittelaschenbach. A short stretch of the main road leads us to Oberaschenbach. From here it goes steadily uphill towards the former death strip. After about 2 km we reach the former border between the FRG and the GDR (now Hessen / Thuringia). Here we drive a bit along the border path and let the past affect us. Since the path through the perforated plates is not suitable for longer tours by bike, we leave it after about 200m and turn left towards a former border tower. On this we treat ourselves to a short break to have a look at the tower. It is currently in the condition it was left around 30 years ago, apparently no one is interested in it. Now we take the little-used main road towards Spahl, which is in Thuringia, for the following descent. There is a worthwhile stop here in the Heile Schern, a well-known restaurant with a beer garden. The journey continues via an unpaved farm track to Apfelbach. There we choose the paved connection path to Neuswarts again and cross the former border for the second time. If you look to the right of the border at the point, you can see its course over many kilometers. A look to the left leads towards Ulstertal, which is limited in the background by the foothills of the Thuringian Rhön. At the end of the recognizable volcanic cone is the ox, the last mountain belonging to the Rhön. The Rhön is separated from the beginning of the Thuringian Forest by the following Werra valley. We now reach Neuswarts and at the end of the village turn right towards the sea winds. In the village, which is only a few houses large, you can stop by in the small but cozy snack bar after prior telephone announcement. From here it is now a long time on a high path, which initially runs through forest, but then compensated with a wonderful view over the Ulstertal to the highest mountain in the Rhön, the Wasserkuppe. We reach Habel as the next larger town and tackle the climb to Schwarzenborn. Now it goes to Nüsterrasen where we have to drive a short distance on the busy road. We then drive to Obernüst along side paths. The municipality of Hofbieber has us back, we can celebrate and enjoy it here with delicious fish specialties in the Gasthaus zur Post (with Stefan). After the rest, it goes downhill for a longer time via paved side roads, over Wallings, Gotthards, towards Morles. Halfway to Morles, we turn left into a forest path, from here it is time to step again. After crossing the hill, we go on easy trail terrain that requires some attention but can be done by everyone. This beautiful path ends at a Wasserfurt, which you can but do not have to drive. The other bank can also be safely reached dry using a small wooden bridge. From here it is still approx. 1.5 km until we reach Hofbieber again, but before that there are a few last meters of altitude ahead of us. Suitable for riders in good condition and e-bikes without restrictions. There is a charging station for e-bikes in the Gasthaus zur Post in Obernüst Distance: 42.2 km; Altitude difference: 769 m; approx. 2/3 tarred and 1/3 dirt roadsShow more

There are mostly paved roads and few gravel roads. Here is the tour description: Our first goal is Schloss Adolphseck - Fasanerie. We start in Hofbieber and drive towards Langenbieber on the Milseburgradweg. We follow this to Melzdorf, there we switch to paved dirt roads and drive on a slight hill to Horwieden. Here we have a wonderful view of the highest mountains of the Rhön (Milseburg; Wasserkuppe; etc.). After crossing the main road, continue towards Rex and from there to Böckels. Here we have to drive a bit of the main road (medium traffic) before turning back onto quiet dirt roads in Wissels. It then goes via Dirlos over beautiful paths, which sometimes briefly touch the hectic bustle of civilization (motorway underpass), to Adolphseck Palace - pheasant. In addition to the great facility to be admired, there is also an opportunity to stop here. We continue on the official access road from Adolphseck –Fasanerie (an avenue) towards Bronnzell. There we meet the Fulda valley and drive the "Fulda cycle path" or "Hessischer Radfernweg R1" towards Rhön. After a short stop at the ice cream parlor in Eichenzell, we drive to Lütter to say Fuldatal Ade. In Lütter it goes first on main roads through the village until we then turn left uphill. Here on the slope we come across a remarkable Mariengrotte, which you should have a look at. In the meantime everyone has noticed that the terrain has become more hilly, we graze the first small foothills of the Rhön on the way back to Hofbieber. The tarred side routes lead us to Dietershausen and from there we head towards Friesenhausen.
