  • Schwäbische Alb

    Your first stage starts in Giengen an der Brenz. You start your hike at the train station, first follow the path along the Brenz and then cross the river to the south.Immediately you leave the small town behind you and you are in peaceful nature. The Albschäferweg leads you over wide fields and along small wooded areas. After a while you cross a country road on a bridge and reach the ruins of the Güssenburg on a narrow mountain spur. Here you can stroll around between the old walls before you circle around Hermaringen on the hiking trail on extensive juniper heaths and get back to the banks of the Brenz. Treat yourself to a break in the shady willow tent on the bank. The hot water has the right Kneipp temperature.You follow the course of the river, sometimes closer to the water, sometimes a bit further away and walk through Bergenweiler to Sontheim an der Brenz. The Albschäferweg leads you along the edge of Sontheim and with good visibility you can see the Alps from here.The last section to the stage destination leads you through a quiet forest and finally over some fields before you reach Stetten ob Lontal. On the outskirts of the village is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Vogelherd Cave, embedded in a theme park. There you can get in the mood for your hike through the primeval Lone Valley.On your first stage, there is a refreshment stop at the Sportheim Hermaringen right on the way. You can also make a detour to Sontheim to take a break in a restaurant, please inquire about the opening times. In both places you will also find supermarkets and bakeries to stock up on your provisions.At the end of the stage you will spend the night in a hotel with a restaurant or in a guest house with a shepherd's cart.You can also do a short day round tour on the Albschäfer time track Brenzberge and Brentalblick.
