Sweeping views, rolling hills, picturesque half-timbered towns, and romantic castle ruins — this is what awaits you on our seven hikes in Heilbronn Country. You will discover and love the peaceful nature to the north of Baden-Württemberg on leisurely theme trails, scenic day routes, and the 100-kilometer long cultural trail through the Jagst Valley.

Framed by the Swabian Alb in the east, the Odenwald in the north, the Rhine lowlands in the west and the mighty Black Forest in the south — Heilbronn is surrounded by magnificent hilly scenery. You will hike between the famous low mountain ranges in Heilbronn Country, over gentle, sun-drenched hills blanketed in vines. The hills are crossed by Kocher, Jagst and Neckar rivers which have created peaceful valleys over the course of thousands of years.

We have selected seven varied hikes for you to discover Heilbronn Country. The hikes are all perfectly signposted and, with well-trodden trails, they are suitable for both experienced and novice hikers. We will take you through the vineyards, to old castles and small towns with traditional wineries on the six different day hikes.

If you really want to immerse yourself in the history, nature, and culture of Heilbronn Country, you should definitely take a look at the Kulturwanderweg (cultural trail) through the Jagst Valley. You hike over 100 kilometers across eight stages through the beautiful Jagst valley. Here, you can expect to find magnificent views, diverse nature, perfectly preserved old towns and a number of impressive castles. Thanks to good bus and train links, you can of course also easily choose your favorite section and plan a day hike.

Join us on a journey to Heilbronn Country and discover the true heart of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
