  • Schwäbische Alb

    Moss-covered rocks and water that plunges over a tuff edge from 37 meters - the Urach waterfall is just one of the varied highlights that awaits you on the tenth stage from Bad Urach to Honau.Your hiking day starts with a long, steep climb to a fairytale place, the Urach waterfall. In the small shelter and at the kiosk you can marvel at the water curtains gently flowing over the slope. The Albsteig leads you up to the lookout tower and the “Hohe Warte” memorial. Once you have climbed the 125 steps to the top of the tower, you have a wonderful panorama of the mountains, fields and forests of the Swabian Jura.Through beech forests and lush meadow paths you come to the ruins of Greifenstein, where you can enjoy the surrounding landscape while sitting on wooden benches. The view is only surpassed by the Rötelstein. From here you can see Lichtenstein Castle perched on a ridge. Honau, your daily goal, is now not far away. In Honau, for example, you will find the “Forellenhof Rössle”, which is perfect for accommodation.
