    Beautiful bike path right on the Neckar. Currently (as of summer 2018), the way is freshly graveled, with too narrow tires, it is therefore uncomfortable. But the section is not sooooo long, therefore well feasible for all cyclists.

    View of the Krappenfelsen.
    Powerful and steep, with terraces, overhangs and rocky outcrops. Covering an area of ​​more than two hectares, the rock, together with its immediately adjacent vineyards and dry stone walls, forms a community recognized as worthy of protection in 1938. Since then, the Krappenfelsen has been designated as a so-called areal natural monument. A typical landscape element that is unique in its special shape - shaped by the Neckar River when it has sunk into the hard slate of the Muschelkalk.
    He has opened a geological window that provides insight into the foundation and history of the earth. In this case, a look at the Mesozoic, which began with the Triassic: the "Trinity" of Buntsandstein, Muschelkalk and Keuper. The upper shell limestone, from which the Krappenfelsen consists, formed approximately 235 million years ago, and its stratification of argillaceous and crystalline Kalkbänken, interspersed with Mergellagen
    His name was given to him by the Prongs. Krappen - that is the southern German name for corvids and griffins. Especially the jackdaws, the hot mountain wall is a popular place to stay. Watching them descend into the wall, towards the river, and how they catch themselves again is one of the special pleasures of enjoying the view of the Neckar and Lauffen from the top of the platform
