    The Wackerstein is not one of the most famous, but it is one of the most spectacular viewpoints of the Pfullinger Alb. A rock needle with a summit cross is in front of the small rock balcony. Here you will find a great view over Reutlingen all the way to Tübingen. Even the Stuttgart television tower seems close enough to touch, despite the distance.

    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.

    The Wackerstein is one of the most striking rocks on the Albtrauf above Pfullingen in the Swabian Alb biosphere area. There is a summit cross on it, which is rare in the Swabian Alb. A wonderful view opens up over the Alb foreland, the orchard belt and the varied landscape of the Albtrauf.

    The Wackerstein is a geotope, what makes it special is that its summit is "detached" from the Albtrauf, which means it is free-standing and no longer connected to the edge of the Albtrauf behind it.

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

    The Wackerstein is one of only two rocks in the Reutlinger Alb that are suitable for climbing. The Felsinfo of the German Alpine Club shows 45 routes with a degree of difficulty from three to eight on the Alpine scale. In spring, when the birds are brooding, the rock can be closed for climbing.

    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.

    Great view towards Reutlingen. In good weather determines a beautiful vision. Nearby there is a small hut with barbecue and a few benches to rest.
