In Behrungen there is the Eschenhof stud farm. The riding facility there is used to train the impressive animals. Not far from the village is also the memorial site at the Behrungen border complex. A former border tower and the column path can still be viewed in the German-German open-air museum.
The bike tour continues to Berkach. There you can see the Jewish ensemble, which includes a synagogue, a bathhouse and a cemetery. In Schwickershausen it is then a question of discovering the moated castle. This castle, which is now privately owned, was first mentioned in the 12th century. After being destroyed in the Peasants' War and later rebuilt, it has grown with numerous additions to form the complex it is today.
The circular route now continues to Nordheim with its regional museum of local history. Then we get back to the starting point of the cycle path in Rentwertshausen.
Safety informationThe tourist paths of the Rhön are mostly used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, horse riders, cross-country skiers, etc.).
We ask all active nature sports enthusiasts to show consideration for one another. Of course, the same applies to nature - it is worth protecting. In the Rhön, nature sports should therefore only be practiced in daylight on designated paths and areas.
Getting thereRentwertshausen is easily accessible by car via the A71. Leave the autobahn at exit 23 Rentwertshausen. Then turn off from this towards the place of the same name. A few meters later there is a commuter parking lot on the left side of the road, where you can park your car during the bike tour.
