Track and weather conditions

Description of the tracks (road, landscape)
On Friday we offer an afternoon walk of 6/11 km, which brings you into the city centre.
On Saturday, the first day of the IML Walking Association walk, there is 25 an 42 km route. The 25 km leads you south to Bronnzell, then to Eichenzell and the Fasanerie Palace. The extra loop for the 42 km brings you to the Rhoen Mountains and has some nice up and down in it. Since 2002 we offer a 'special version' of the 42 km route on Saturday: There is a bus transfer to the Rhoen Mountains and the walk starts from out there back to Fulda. In 2002 we had the first try, starting from the Wasserkuppe, the highest mountain in the area, and the walkers highly recommended this route. In the last years we started from some other places in the mountains.
On Sunday, the second day, there is also a 25 and 42 km which brings you mostly to the region northwest of Fulda. Part of the route is in the open and a big part, especially on the 42 km, is in the woods. There is some up and down but nothing serious. On the way back you will walk through the city centre of Fulda where you have the opportunity for some sightseeing.
Beside the walks there are different possibilities to spend your time here in Fulda: You can visit the city palace, the palace gardens, the Baroque Cathedral, the Fire Brigade Museum etc. You can also rent a bike or if you are into water sports you can rent a Kayak and go canoeing on the Fulda river.

Weather
You never know what kind of weather you will have in Germany this part of the year. We had some years with very good weather but also quite a few rainy days.

Souvenir - award
