Create an itinerary including Wasserkuppe
The plateau formation of Wasserkuppe mountain makes the terrain ideal for hang gliding. A kaleidoscope of sails creates a mosaic in the sky during the peak travel season. However, if you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, opt for one of the many hiking trails that wind through the hills. Cross-country skiing takes the place of hiking in the winter months, and indoor activities, including an aviation museum, will occupy your time if the weather turns foul. Scattered villages rest between the hills, providing lodging for the passing tourist. Put Wasserkuppe on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Gersfeld online trip builder.

  • Great scenery up there. There are also lots of fun activities for kids and adults alike. We always go back here simply because of the view from above and watching aviators and paragliders.
