The Rhön is characterised by a rare fauna and flora, unwooded barren hilltops, plateaus and mountains and hills up to 950 metres high. The variety of nature goes over darkly appearing raised bogs, a partly rough climate, unspoilt forests as well as impressive stone blocks lend the Rhön its special character and remind of the volcanic origin of these mountains.

In 1991, Unesco declared the Rhön a biosphere reserve. Only the part of the Bavarian Rhön became Bavaria's largest nature reserve outside the Alps.
