    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.

    A huge fortification with a well-preserved kennel (6 bastions) and cistern and a magnificent view of the city over Geislingen.

    We did the tour with our 3 year old twins and the way to the castle from the train station is very nice and varied.
