    The Twelve Apostles Rocks are a particularly impressive example of rock clearings in the Altmühltal. A canoe tour on the Altmühl from Solnhofen to Dollnstein offers a special view of the rock group "Zwölf Apostel".

    Short but varied route with a beautiful view of the Altmühltal on the rock slope of the Twelve Apostles along.

    Sheep are a frequent visitor to the apostles. And only because of them does it look like what it looks like here. Wacholderheide. The sheep has a "good mouth", it says with us. And just eat what he likes. Who would not do that? And lets stand what he does not like or get, for example Juniper or silver thistle. Otherwise, there would probably be forest everywhere, as it was centuries before the sheep and goat grazing.
     Since the decline of the migratory sheep, the juniper heathen risk to grow woody again. Many juniper heaths were also reforested after abandonment of the sheep farm with pine and spruce trees. Others became natural forests by natural succession. However, since extensively used, open, lean sites have become rare, juniper heaths are kept open today for reasons of nature and landscape conservation. For grazing today, shepherds throughout Germany receive funds from nature conservation or agricultural programs.

    One of the scenic highlights in the Altmühltal Nature Park is the rock group "Twelve Apostles". The mighty towering dolomite rocks between Solnhofen and Eßlingen greet boaters on the Altmühl, cyclists on the Altmühltal cycle path and hikers on their tours around Solnhofen.Source and more information:
