    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.

    With its 115 hectares, the nature reserve Venusberg is the largest nature reserve in the district of Böblingen. The Venusberg is one of the far-reaching hilltops, which tower in the Heckengäu the shallow-wave mussel lime landscape.

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

    Due to the many paths here, you can easily and spontaneously adjust the length of the tours. The area is very beautiful here.
    I find the combination of heathland and small pine forests very appealing. That also gives a great smell when the sun is shining.

    If you walk over the whole of the Venusberg, you will see mainly the juniper heather on one side and a lot of agriculture on the other.

    Beautiful landscape. Enjoyed the rest very much. As a reward, an ice cream in the village.
