    The nature reserve "Rock Gardens" houses a variety of rare plant and animal species. In good weather you have a wonderful view from up here and can watch some climbers on the rock walls. The rugged limestone cliffs above the Neckar are a geological feature. It is worth exploring the rock gardens. But watch out where you are going.

    The Hessigheim rock gardens tower over the surrounding vineyards and offer a great panoramic view over the Neckarschleife. Inside you can watch some climbers every now and then during training. Sure-footedness and sturdy footwear are an advantage.

    Here is on nice days too much going on. It is a pity that some of the rock gardens are overcrowded. But it is also because that sometimes guides are made here. Then just 50-60 visitors arrive at once and walk through the gardens. But since the paths are so narrow that you can barely get past each other, you have to expect that you're always chasing behind a group that keeps stopping to shoot photos. The rock gardens are really beautiful, but so out of place in the middle of fields and places, so that a hike is only partially pleasant.
    In short: for "ambitious" hikers, there are more beautiful places for hiking. For families, the rock gardens are a nice destination.

    Summer and winter a very nice place. In the summer in good weather but also quite overcrowded. You can either go via Besigheim (but the path leads along a major road for a while) or you can park in the parking lot at Hessigheim Felsengartenkellerei. If you want to go for a walk, do the first: park in Besigheim, go to the rock gardens, then down to Gessigheim and back to the left of the Neckar.

    Nice to walk and on occasion to observe one or the other climbers

    The rise (heavy pulse, breathing like a steam locomotive) is short, but it has in itself. But definitely rewarded. The view and the great rock formations are great!

    I did not find the Felsengartenkellerei very nice now. It took forever to get the ordered food / drink too. I am convinced that Hessigheim offers much better possibilities of accommodation. Even with the food there is just typical food from the stand (sausage / chips, sausage salad ...). But nothing really special. It is not particularly nice to sit. Are beer bars in the winery entrance set up. I did not like it and would not go there again.

    Definitely worth the trip! Really nice view from the top. Ideal for romantic evenings at sunset. It's best to stop by the Felsengartenkellerei, taste some wine and then take it with you. If the weather is good you can watch climbers climbing or bouldering.

    In good weather, you can usually see some climbers in the lead. Interesting rock formations.
