Hiking between lively cities and wonderfully quiet countryside, panoramic heights and romantic valleys, magical forests and fragrant orchards, steep vineyards and meandering rivers – welcome to the heart of Baden-Württemberg. Experience the largest contiguous orchard landscape in Central Europe with us along the “Früchtetrauf" premium hiking trails.

This Collection guides you along 10 wonderful hikes around Rottenburg, Mössingen and Tübingen. These routes show you a very special side of the Swabian Alb as you hike through picturesque orchards and impressive vineyards, discovering wonderful vantage points and idyllic resting places. We want to invite you to enjoy this region in all its splendor in the way that suits you best.

The Tours in this Collection are not too long and can, for the most part, be completed even if you have little hiking experience. They mostly follow narrow paths and natural trails so your trusty hiking boots will be your good companion here. We also recommend giving yourself plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful landscapes, filled with blossoming trees and fantastic views.

As you hike or after your Tour you can stop for culinary delights at the numerous wine and cider taverns en route. They’ll be happy to welcome you and let you taste the fruit that you admired on the trees beforehand. You can also fill your rucksack with delicious snacks from the small, rustic farm stores.

But that’s enough talking – now it's time to experience. If you want to see what awaits you in this wonderful region, this video will give you a taster:
