Poppenhausen (Wasserkuppe) – an outdoor sports community
Poppenhausen (Wasserkuppe) is a climatic spa located in an idyllic valley basin and set amid a magnificent low-peak landscape - a fully intact and unspoilt natural environment.
In recent years, Poppenhausen (Wasserkuppe) has become established in the Rhön as a centre for outdoor sports with its wide range of activities such as hiking, Nordic walking, cycling and mountain biking, climbing, swimming, sailing, gliding and model aircraft flying, paragliding and hang gliding.
The numerous hike paths running through this landscape offer wonderful views in this ‘land of open distances’, providing a special attraction for hikers. Theme-based hike paths such as the Art Trail (Kunstmeile),(Lover´s Lane, fruits path) offer additional interest. The Nordic Walking Panorama Park with three different routes along forest, meadow and field paths will delight the Nordic walker. Climbers will love the Rock Face (Steinwand) offering numerous levels of difficulty, as well as the climbing centre. The Guckaisee is a beautiful natural lake area for bathing and paddling, while the Lüttergrund leisure centre offers a heated open-air pool as well as Kneipp and skater facilities and climbing park TEAM Tower. The location of Poppenhausen at the foot of the 950m Wasserkuppe - known as ‘Aviation Mountain’ - provides an ideal starting place for all air sports fans.
This and much more is all provided by this beautiful climatic spa set in the Rhön biosphere reserve - a natural beauty spot perfect for outdoor sports.
