Schwäbische Alb planned a hike.

  • Schwäbische Alb

    On the eighth stage on the Albschäferweg you hike over the plateaus of the Härtsfeld. The Härtsfeld has a considerably more rocky subsoil than other regions in the Eastern Alb and therefore the agricultural yields used to be considerably lower here. This made the landscape particularly popular for the traveling shepherds. Today they are responsible for maintaining the juniper heaths, which are important for species protection and the landscape. With today's knowledge, good results can be achieved in agriculture here too, and so the herds of sheep are becoming increasingly rare.You leave Nattheim and walk past fields and meadows towards a dense forest. You cross the forest on comfortable paths and then pass the towns of Fleinheim and Auernheim. With a great view, you hike above the fields and meadows along the edge of the forest towards Neresheim, today's stage destination. Long before you reach the place, you can already see the famous monastery looming over the plateau.On the eighth stage you will not find any refreshments on the Albschäferweg. Unless you take a short detour into the town at Fleinheim. With a little luck, the Ochsenwirt will serve you a traditional roast lamb with knöpfle. Ideally, you should otherwise equip yourself with a backpack vesper and simply take your break according to your own needs. On the heath between Fleinheim and Auernheim and shortly after Auernheim you will find a nice rest area for this.
