Immerse yourself in the past

The tour starts at the market square. On the approximately 2.5 km long circular route, the various corners of Hesse can be visited in the form of so-called building groups. Some houses can also be visited from the inside. Along the route there are several opportunities to stop for a picnic, discover the past, find out what workshops looked like back then, and meet animals. A forest adventure trail and a geological nature trail can also be explored. Towards the end of the tour there is also a fitness trail.
