  • Fantastic views of the Hohe Urach and the Ermstal, left of the Hohe Urach on the horizon is still the Hohe Neuffen to see. Who looks for a nice rest area for a breather would certainly be well advised to plan this place (slides) in his route so that he arrives here at break time.

  • The Camererstein is definitely worth a visit! Together with a trip to the castle ruins Hohenurach and the Urach waterfalls, the beautiful view completes the cozy tour.
    If you want to save the sometimes quite steep ascent you can also get from the west over the fields to the Camererstein. In any case, the view of the castle ruins and the round mountain over Bad Urach is worth a visit.
    On weekends and in good weather, the area is unfortunately very busy. The high density of sights in the immediate vicinity make a visit worthwhile in any case!

    Have fun!

  • The nature reserve is located on the eaves of the Swabian Alb between Reutlingen and Göppingen in the natural area Mittlere Kuppenalb. It extends from the "round mountain" near Bad Urach to the "Sonnenfels" above Dettingen / Erms and includes several natural monuments of great natural value such as. the Urach Waterfall, the Rutschenfelsen, the hell holes and Sonnenfels and yellow rock. A special feature is the steep, nearly 90 m Albtraufkante the "chipping rocks" dar. The upcoming rock lark (White Jurassic ε = epsilon) to some extent form the geological stage of the Mittlerer Kuppenalb. The White Jurassic ε is formed in large parts of the Alb plateau in a sponge-algae facies (so-called Massenkalke), here but are thick-banked squaring lark or stratified rock limestone, with a thickness up to 120 m, in the lowest stratification, a source horizon has formed , One of these sources feeds the well-known Urach waterfall

  • Particularly impressive are the rocks in the fall, when the trees have lost their leaves, and also the view of the lower part of the rocks is possible.

  • From the Eppenzill rock you can see the chute cliffs and the Urach waterfall from the other side. On the way to Gütersteiner waterfall you pass the Rohrauer hut. There you can have a good time outside, barbecue or just drink a wheat.

  • Ernst Camerer was a significant figure in the founding years of the Swabian Albverein.
    From Wikipedia:
    On August 13, 1888, at the invitation of Valentin Salzmann in Plochingen, the representatives of several beautification associations met with the aim of improving the work of the existing beautification associations on Albtrauf collectively. At the inaugural meeting on November 12, 1888 in Plochingen Salzmann presented the first draft of the Statute of the Swabian Albverein before, which was then finally called into being. Camerer belonged to the first committee meeting on April 22, 1889 in Plochingen. At the first general meeting of the association on May 5, 1889 in Plochingen he was elected secretary and deputy chairman. After the death Salzmanns he was elected in the Annual General Meeting on 25 March 1890 in Plochingen to the second president of the club's history. Under his presidency, the association organization with local groups and districts was established and expanded, it was the road network created and designated according to uniform principles, there were towers and migrant homes built, since 1892 issued hiking maps as a club gift and founded in 1893 the club publisher. In 1913 he handed over the club management to Eugen Nägele.

  • I do not remember how many times I've been here over the years, but it's always incredibly beautiful here on the Rutschenfelsen. The view to the High Urach, through the corn valley, and the Ermstal are magnificent, even the High Neuffen can be seen very well, and also the castle Teck can be seen, at least if you know where to look. :-) Up here, I am constantly finding out again in what a great area I was born and raised.
