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.

Ernst Camerer was a significant figure in the founding years of the Swabian Albverein.
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.

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!

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.
