    You come up high on the sixth stage of the RemstalWeg: You hike from Heubach over the Rosenstein, at 735 meters the highest point of the long-distance hiking trail. The goal of the almost 24-kilometer tour is Mögglingen. Today's stage is the turning point of the RemstalWeg. In Essingen the route bends and you start the way back through the other side of the Rems valley.From Heubach, however, the route is uphill at first. After almost two kilometers you will pass the Rosenstein castle ruins, from which you have a great view of the valley. The Rosenstein is also known for its many caves. The mountain is perforated by around 40 caves, such as the "Große Scheuer". You hike through the 44 meter long and up to seven meter high cave. Thanks to the large openings, it is bright enough and you don't need a flashlight.Then it goes downhill, past other caves to Lautern. Due to its numerous horticultural companies, Lautern is also called the "gardener village". You cross the village, you can get a pretzel in your hand at the local baker and hike uphill again. The path winds up, past Lauterburg and a little further.You have now collected your altitude difference for today, from now on it is only downhill. It is worth taking a short detour to the Rems origin. The 80 km long river rises at 550 meters. On its way to the mouth of the Neckar, the Rems covers a gradient of almost 350 meters. You can take a short break at the source - after all, in the river you are your constant companion on your hike.We continue downhill to Essingen. You can stop there or take a break in the castle park. Along the banks of the Rems, you hike the last kilometers to your stage destination Mögglingen. There you will find everything you need for a relaxing evening after a long day of hiking.
