The community of Freiensteinau with its beautiful low mountain range landscape is located in the southern tip of the Vogelsberg district. The Nieder-Mooser lake with camping site and the leisure park Vulkan invite you to stay and relax. People otherwise exposed to the daily stress and hectic life of the big cities find the serenity of our villages particularly relaxing. Here you will quickly forget the annoyance of heavy car traffic, air pollution, stuffy subways and crowded streets. Located in the middle of Germany, the villages in Freiensteinau have retained their special quality of life.
For friends of fairy tales
A boulder on the Wintersberg, a single high basalt cone near Freiensteinau, gives the name to the wild stone. There is quite a hollow in it that looks almost like a crib, which is why both old and young call it the “Christchild Cradle”. The Most Blessed Virgin Mary is said to have stayed here overnight on her wanderings and laid her sweet baby Jesus inside the stone hollow. But others say it was Mother Hulda. Many years ago there was always music and dance here on St. John's Day.
For holiday tourists and day visitors
The Nieder-Mooser lake with camping and camper van site is the tourist centre for nature lovers, swimmers, hikers, sailors, surfers and anglers. The entrance to the premium hiking trail "Three Lakes Tour" is located at the camping site. The tour is 13 km long and can be easily walked in 3.5 hours. It is also recommended for inexperienced hikers. On the other side of the lake is the volcano park with miniature golf course, disk golf course, tepee village, bouncy castle and much more. Here you can enjoy activities out in pure nature. Nearby is the nature reserve Ober-Mooser Lake with birdwatching hut. Rare bird species such as red kite, black-necked grebe, black stork, great crested grebe and little grebe can be observed.
