    The climb is very tight!
    The following view over Geislingen makes up for everything!
    If you want to hike the entire climbing tour, you can easily start and end it from the train station.

    Nice view over Geisslingen, especially the Zugkurve and the steep slopes.
    From here you can go hiking through the forest. Parking is a few hundred meters away.

    Beautiful castle, from the tower you have a great view of Geislingen. From there you can also make your way to the Ödeturm, which can be reached after about 45 minutes.

    Great view over the 5 valley city. Opposite you can see the Ostland Cross and further back you can see the Y high-rise buildings, which mark the way to Überkingen. The lower Filstal with its places Kuchen, Gingen, Süßen, Salach, Eislingen and then Göppingen lies in front of you and you have a clear view of the Hohenstaufen. The Geislinger Steige to Amstetten starts on the left and the Weiler Steige meanders below you. Continue to the right into the Eybacher Tal and the Längental.
