Volcanic cycle Route - on the trail of the volcanic railway

The Volcanic Cycle Route leads you over 94 km on the former line of the Upper Forest Railway and winds its way through the gentle upland landscape of Vogelsberg and Wetterau. The Volcanic Cycle Route is a scenic delight for everyone – whether they be experts, untrained cyclists, or families with children.

On your tour you will encounter lots of traces of a “fiery past” at the edge of the trail, and when you are out of breath, you can change over onto the Vulkan-Express bus, which drives along the whole route, accompanying you.
