Schwäbische Alb planned a hike.

    After a restful night, you start your second day on the Albschäferweg in Stetten ob Lontal. After a few steps you have left the village and will soon cross the Lone Valley and the Lone. The path leads you on the other side of the valley up into a dense forest and you continue walking on leisurely paths in the direction of Kaltenburg. To get here, you leave the Albschäferweg for a short stretch. The castle complex has been renovated in recent years and now towers over the valley, visible from afar.The Charlottenhöhle is located directly below the castle ruins. If you like, you can pay a visit to the dreamy and large stalactite cave and take a look at the cave museum before you continue your hike.You continue hiking, cross the A7 motorway and then dive back into the forest. You can reach the Domain Falkenstein on comfortable forest paths. A sustainable agricultural business is housed in the outer bailey of the former Falkenstein Castle. There are hardly any traces left of the actual castle on an offshore rock spur, but the view of the Eselsburger valley is definitely worth a visit.Between forest and fields, the Albschäferweg leads you on partly curved paths down the hillside forest towards the stage destination Anhausen. Here you will find a friendly B&B where you can relax for the next day.On this stage you can either take a break in the HöhlenHaus near the Charlottenhöhle, before crossing the motorway at the rest stop there or on a detour to Eselsburg. In Eselsburg you will find the Eselsburger Talschenk right on the river, where you can strengthen yourself for the rest of the way. Next to it is the imposing thatched building with an organic shop and café. The dangling through the valley, past the legendary Stone Virgins, is also recommended if you want to spend the night in Herbrechtingen.
