    The home needle is part of the natural monument White Wall Heimenstein. From here you have a spectacular view of the ruin Reußenstein.

    Here you can walk right up to the abyss, without there being a barrier, or a railing. This makes this look very natural and makes the view particularly beautiful. The view is breathtaking.

    In the earliest time a river flowed through the cave, which is documented by water level marks on the walls. To the cave there is a legend of the writer Wilhem Hauff. Thereafter, the giant home once lived here, until he moved into the specially built for him castle Reussenstein.
    The cave can be easily reached from the Wandererparkplatz Bahnhöfle and is freely accessible.

    The Heimenstein cave is named after the Heimenstein, a striking rock opposite the ruin Reußenstein. Here was a castle that is barely recognizable today. The Heimenstein cave, which is located in this rock and is a passage cave, was probably integrated into the defensive system of the castle. From the mountain side, it goes down steeply, until finally the 20m lower located second entrance is reached. This is located in the cliff towards Reußenstein and offers a beautiful view of the ruin Reußenstein.

    The "Heimenstein Cave" is located near Neidlingen in the Esslingen district, Baden-Württemberg.- it is a so-called through cave, i.e. it has a natural entrance and exit
    - is on the Heimenstein / Swabian Alb
    - at 756 m above sea level NN
    - the cave (entrance) passage leads steeply downhill for about 80 meters, at the end of the cave (exit) passage there is an iron gate
    - freely accessible, but the cave exit is not accessible from January to July (breeding season, access is then closed (see information board)
    - those who like caves are worth seeing, but the wonderful view at the entrance to the surroundings is enough, opposite is the "Reußenstein Castle ruins"
    - The "Heimenstein Castle" once stood here, which stood above the Heimenstein cave (alt-owen.com/heimenstein)
