  • Schwäbische Alb

    The penultimate and ninth stage on the Albschäferweg leads you to three historical buildings.Only a few minutes from your starting point in Neresheim you get to the huge Benedictine monastery complex Neresheim. Today only ten monks live in the large buildings, but you can take courses here and spend the night in the monastery. A special highlight is the huge abbey church with its radiant interior.The next stopover is Katzenstein Castle. The well-preserved fortress can be visited from March to December and the cozy castle tavern is perfect for a leisurely rest.Over the wide fields of the Swabian Alb you continue to hike to the Härtsfeldsee. In summer you can cool your feet in the water and have a nice rest. The reservoir is not designated for official swimming.You follow the Albschäferweg to Dischingen, where the impressive parish church awaits you. Then you follow the course of the Egau for a while in and above the Egau valley to the stage destination Ballmertshofen.Note on this tour that the castle tavern in Katzenstein Castle is closed in January and February and only partially open in November and December. A food voucher is included in the entrance fee to the castle. If you go on your hike during these months, you should provide yourself with sufficient provisions in advance.A tip: The Café-Stüble Sofa in Dischingen is open on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. You can find it at Torstrasse 7, just a short distance from the path.
