Leisure activities

  • Of course, the beautiful scenery of the Vogelsberg mountain range is ideal for leisure activities such as hiking or discovery tours in the almost untouched nature. For winter sport fans, there are four lifts and a number of slopes, one floodlit, and a floodlit cross-country ski track plus another 50 km of prepared cross-country ski tracks and a summer and winter toboggan run "at your doorstep". From the Taufstein mountain, which is not far away, you can see Frankfurt's skyline on clear days. The sights of the little timbered town of Schotten, which is over 1,200 years old, or the timer workshop in Lauterbach are well worth a visit. In addition, the Hostel management also offers selected activity programmes that are fun for everyone from young to old. Guided lama treks. Guided hikes with rangers from the nature reserve. The nature reserve information centre. Natural fitness trails (mountainbike and nordic walking trails). Volcanic cycling tours. Bonifatius Route. Vogelsberggarten gardens. Hoherodskopf forest climbing course. Schotten bird park. Steinau adventure park.
