    The Swabian Alb looks back on a long history: In the past the Jurassic Sea sloshed here, today the low mountain range in southern Germany offers you a lot of geological features and a wonderful landscape for hiking. So also around Blaubeuren.The ten kilometer long rock climb begins at the train station in Blaubeuren, where you will also find parking options. Right at the beginning you hike steeply uphill, past interesting rock formations. Would you have recognized the two kissing sows as such? Through the forest it goes back down to the village and to the well-known Blautopf, the second richest karst spring in Germany, which looks so wonderfully magical due to its deep blue water.There are still a few meters to climb: The path now leads you up to the Albtrauf. You hike along the steeply sloping rock edge and enjoy a fantastic view of the Blaubeuren valley basin and over the high plateau. On your way down you pass the Hohengerhausen ruins and then meander downhill into the valley. You cross the Blau and will soon be back at the train station in town.Camping Heidehof is only ten minutes away by car from Blaubeuren. The well-maintained campsite, which also has rental accommodation (such as log cabins or camping barrels), is an ideal starting point for your excursions on the Alb. You can find more information here: camping-heidehof.de.
