    The nature reserve Venusberg is with an area of ​​115 hectares the largest natural reserve of the district Böblingen. There is also the largest juniper heath of this district.Strictly speaking, the nature reserve is called "Venusberg / Wolfsäcker / Besental / Halde". This indicates that the reserve consists of several separate sub-areas.The nature reserve, which was designated in 1985, includes heath and forest landscapes on limestone soils. This type of landscape, which moves through almost all of Baden-Württemberg, is called Gäu. The limestone soils that are found in the area are not very fertile and are therefore not suitable for arable farming. They were used as sheep pastures or as once a year mowing meadow.Today this cultural landscape type has become rare again. In the nature reserve Venusberg one tries now by careful care measures to preserve the heath. This includes regular grazing with sheep. The pine forests in the area were reforested in the 19th century. Over time, they should develop into mixed deciduous forests again.

    The Heckengäu - nature guides offer guided tours over the Venusberg. For groups also on requested dates. heckengäu-naturfü It's always worth it because you see the landscape with completely different eyes.

    Due to the many routes here you can adjust the length of the tours very well and spontaneously. The area is very nice here.

    If you walk over the entire Venusberg, you can see the juniper heath on one side and a lot of agriculture on the other.
