Schwäbische Alb planned a hike.

January 23, 2020


  • Schwäbische Alb

    At the beginning of the fifth stage of the Albtraufganger you hike from Geislingen to the Sentinel with the imposing Ostlandkreuz. From the 665 meter high elevation you have a beautiful view of the highlights of the previous day, such as the Helfenstein ruins and the Ödenturm.
    The route takes you along the Albkante, where one dreamlike vantage point follows the next. The Kahlenstein offers an impressive panorama and a cave is hidden below the lookout rock. Then it goes down through a juniper heath towards Bad Überkingen and soon you will reach the Autal nature reserve. In the natural valley, the Autal waterfalls and the well climbing cave are waiting for you.
    You walk on curved forest paths to the pilgrimage church Ave Maria near Deggingen. The church is known for its artistic interior and beautiful wall paintings. After a short stop in the pilgrimage church, the path continues over the Oberberg through the hilly landscape to the Hiltenburg ruins. The castle ruin is the official stage destination, you can spend the night in either Gosbach or Bad Ditzenbach.
