"Vogelsberg Mountain" Top 5 Page for this destination Land Hessen Things to Do Tip by Weissdorn

Land Hessen Things to Do: 87 reviews and 277 photos

The mountainous region east of the Wetterau is known as the Vogelsberg Region. The Vogelsberg Mountain itself is 763 m high, but is sort of the continental divide between eastern and western Germany. It's a region where a number of scenic routes cross paths. The Half-Timbered House Road, the Baltic Sea / Alp Road, and the Fairytale Road all meander through the Vogelsberg Region. It is a rather large area, this is not too populated, so you will have to travel further to see the sites here. Recommend are Alsfeld, Gedern, Laubach, Lauterbach, Schlitz, Schotten und Schrecksburg.
