Welcome to the TransAlblust, the west-east crossing of the Swabian Alb. Hardly any other region in Germany has as much charm and variety to offer as the Swabian Alb.
These Tours show you how to conquer this low mountain range in Germany’s southwest by bike. An e-bike is ideal for this adventure, but you can opt for a non-battery-powered bike too.
In this Collection, we present your adventure in seven daily stages between 40 to 60 kilometres (24.8 to 37.2 mi) long. Each one is also ideal for a fun-filled day trip. These rides are not about clocking up metres of elevation gain, but about enjoying your time cycling across the Swabian Alb.

The first, 40-kilometer stage of the TransAlblust leads from Albstadt-Ebingen up to the Taufgang region of the Zollern-Albkreis. Shortly after the start, there is almost 300 vertical meters to be mastered in one go. But it is the only noteworthy climb on this day.

Four rivers, namely the Danube, the Lauchert, the Fehla and the Seckach, determine the course of the third stage from Sigmaringen to Trochtelfingen.

Enjoyable rest stops and different landscapes characterize the fourth stage of the TransAlblust. The Pfaffental is outstanding in terms of landscape and not overcrowded. We leave this in Wasserstetten and dive into the natural wonders of the Great Lauter Valley.
The Lauter meanders in its natural river…
Stay down for a long time, by the water - and then quickly and easily up to the plateau: This is how you easily master the fifth stage of the TransAlblust from Ehingen to Westerstetten. And you get to see a lot: water buffalo, Stone Age caves, climbing rocks and many other sights.

The Lone Valley is one of the…
On the final stage from Heidenheim to Nördlingen there is pure nature and hardly frequented cycle paths. It leads over the wide landscape of the Herzfeld and through lush forests.
