Schwäbische Alb planned a hike.
January 24, 2020
The first section of the final stage leads you through the village of Gosbach in Hiltental. From there the demanding ascent to the Leimberg begins, which rewards you with a panoramic view from the small Kreuzkapelle to the Upper Filstal. On the back of the church, wooden benches invite you to take a break from shopping. On easy-to-walk forest trails you hike down to Mühlhausen in the Tale, centrally located in the beautiful Goissatale. The “Goißa”, ie goats, gave the valley its name. At the Hotel Höhenblick the path of the Albtraufufer meanders up the mountain on the other side of the valley. Alternating it goes through juniper heaths and quiet mixed forest. The last piece has another slope ready for you, because you are marching up to the Kreuzkapelle above Wiesensteig. From here you can enjoy a beautiful view of the valley and your destination Wiesensteig. The varied Albtraufsteiger ends where it started, namely at the historic Residenzschloss von Wiesensteig.
