Bike Touring Highlight
The Eyach spring is a contained spring near Albstadt-Pfeffingen on the Zollernalb.
The almost 50 kilometers long Eyach is a typical river on the north side of the Swabian Alb. The Eyach rises on the Zollernalb around 1,500 meters north of the Albstadt district of Pfeffingen.
The course of the Eyach from the source seems a bit strange at first glance. The Eyach initially flows south and makes a striking turn towards the northwest at Albstadt-Lautlingen. This suggests an interesting river history. Millions of years ago, the upper reaches of the Eyach was a side stream of the Danube or the Schmeie tributary of the Danube before the Upper Rhine Rift ingress and the aggressive advance of the Neckar.
