The Ski Resort
Very suitable for beginners is the 600 meter long, wind-protected descent on the Herchenhainer Höhe. The lift leads through a piece of forest.
As winter sports make you hungry, it is worth stopping at the nearby mountain inn. Another small skiing area is not far away at Hoherodskopf. Hesse's longest ski lift, with a length of 1 kilometre, is also located there.
