Revival of the Rhön-Race

After years of hitchhiking in flat landscapes, we are going back into the mountains. (Actually we’ll stay under 1000 m of altitude, but we get close to this and we also need space for improvment …)
The next hitchhiking competition will take place within the Rhön-area in Germany from the 31st of May until the 2nd of June.

The Rhön – Again?
For the first time in our DTSG-history we will revive an old racing route. We already hitchhiked here 6 years ago and had a blast, so we choosed to re-do this classic track.

… same, as every year …
Friday, 31st: Get together in the Rhön, within the federal state of Thuringia. (The exact location will be published soon)
Saturday: Race starts traditionally at 9 am.
Sunday: End of the race at … when all teams arrived at the final destination.

The Rhön Mountains
We are doing this revival, not because we already visited all other regions of Germany, but because the Rhön is very magnificent area, that amazed us already back in 2013. Those mountains are within the border area of the federal states of Bavaria, Hesse and Thuringia. Right in the core it contains a biosphere reserve with overwhelming nature and culture.
