    The Wackerstein is one of the most striking rocks on the Albtrauf above Pfullingen in the Swabian Alb biosphere region. On it there is a summit cross, which is rather rare on the Swabian Alb. A magnificent view opens up over the foothills of the Alb, the orchard belt and the varied landscape of the Albtrauf.

    The Wackerstein is a geotope, especially makes him, that his summit is "detached" from the Albtrauf, that is he is detached and no longer connected to the underlying edge of Albtraufs.

    From the parking lot Ruoffseck (L 382 Pfullingen direction Sonnenbühl, directly after reaching the plateau of the Swabian Alb), the Wackerstein can be reached in a short tour of about 2km.

    The Wackerstein is one of only two rocks of the Reutlinger Alb, which are suitable for climbing. The rock information of the German Alpine Association shows 45 routes, ranging in difficulty from three to eight of the Alpine scale. In the spring during the bird brood the rock can be locked for climbing.

    When looking from the Wackerstein in the north you siht you two striking mountain cones. The mountain cone on the left in the picture is the Georgenberg. This is a vent of the so-called Swabian volcano. The mountain cone on the right is the Achalm. This is a so-called witness mountain. He was formerly part of the albums panel. Reutlingen extends between the two mountains. In the middle right you can see the Schoenberg. The two-step rise in the Albtrauf can clearly be seen here, which is further amplified to the west in the area of ​​the Reutlingen Alb. The icing surface halfway up the Albtrauf is formed by the White Jurassic Beta. The highlands cover the White Jurassic Delta.

    Beautiful rock, just with the summit cross. From the top of course great views.
    Can be, for example, nicely installed in a round to the Schönberg tower.

    The Wackerstein is not one of the best known, but with the most spectacular vantage points of the Pfullinger Alb. The small rock balcony is preceded by a pinnacle with summit cross. Here you can find a great view over Reutlingen all the way to Tübingen Even the Stuttgart TV tower seems close enough to touch despite the distance.
