    The Burren - a lookout on the Filsalb
    The Burren is a hilltop in the Filsalb area between the Filstal near Gingen / Fils and a side valley of the upper Filstal with the village Unterböhringen.
    A bit, the Burren is an exotic in this landscape of Filsalb. On the one hand, it is a real mountain, a hilltop - and not just part of a plateau. On the other hand, the Burren is not wooded. Rather, the mountain is occupied by a very picturesque juniper heath. This guarantees a beautiful view from the top of the Burren. The Burren is also a bit mysterious. Because from the middle distance you can not see the Burren from any direction. The summit is always covered by forests.The Burren is made up of White Jurassic gamma rocks. The juniper heath at the summit of the Burren is a so-called § 32 biotope according to the National Nature Conservation Act. The 1.3-hectare juniper is thus protected, even if it is not explicitly designated as a protected area.

    From here you have a wonderful view of the three Kaiser mountains. At the top there is also a bank.

    Great view of the three Kaiser Mountains. With a bit of luck and a good view of the distance, you can see the Alps.

    It was cold, a little windy and cloudy. We only met three women and three dogs. But it was very beautiful and romantic; Pure nature. Great view of the three Kaiser Mountains and the Filstal.

    I've been living in the Göppingen district for almost 50 years, but I've never been to the Burren. For me personally the best vantage point ever. We had great foresight that day and nothing stands in the way. The climb is definitely worth it!
