The Achalm (707 m) is the local mountain of Reutlingen and a witness mountain of the central Swabian Alb. On the summit are sparse remains of the foundations of the same named medieval castle Achalm, the former manor of the extinct aristocratic family of the Counts of Achalm. Built in 1838 as a replica keep, the observation tower offers a panoramic view of Reutlingen, Eningen, Pfullingen, the northern Alb foreland and the northern edge of the central Swabian Alb, the Albtrauf. You can also see Tübingen, the Schönbuch and - on a clear day - to Hornisgrinde in the northern Black Forest.
