Fairy-tale castles and fortresses, rushing streams and raging rivers, blue springs and deep caves, together with beautiful mountains, green forests and steep cliffs make this a unique landscape - the Swabian Alb.
For an unforgettable weekend trip to the Swabian Alb, I have put together a number of tours that you can take individually as day trips or simply combine with each other if you want to stay for two or three days. The highlight of this collection is the three-day tour from Reutlingen to Sigmaringen, just the right thing for a long weekend on the Swabian Alb.
The bike tours take you to the most beautiful corners of the region, which is enchanted not only by its wonderful landscape, but also by the multitude of castles and fortresses that stand on the countless hills, such as Hohenzollern Castle or Lichtenstein Castle.
In order to make your weekend trip as relaxing as possible, I have made sure that you can arrive and depart by train at all the starting and finishing points of the tours and stages. There is also a wide range of accommodations available such as hotels, guesthouses and holiday apartments. So there is nothing standing in the way of a nice weekend on the Swabian Alb. Happy planning!
