The second stage of the Albtäler Cycle Tour is all about water, caves and teddy bears. In exactly this order: You start in Langenau and as soon as you leave the city you will reach the flat Donauried. This huge wetland supplies large parts of Baden-Württemberg with drinking water - for you it is a wet and happy pleasure to cycle through nature, which has been protected in many places. If you want to find out more about the drinking water supply, it is worth stopping at the “Groundwater Adventure World” in the pumping station of the Langenau waterworks. When you have left Langenau, you will see the waterworks after about two kilometers on the left side of the cycle path - a small detour that is worthwhile. before you make your way to the Valley of the Caves. Impressive rock formations and small caves await you here. One of the most famous is the Vogelherd cave. Mammoth hunters took shelter here during the Ice Age and left behind some of the oldest works of art known to man. Among other things, you can look at the "Lion Man", a small sculpture that depicts a person with the head and limbs of a cave lion. You cycle on quiet roads through the Lonetal, into the valley of the Hürbe. Here, too, the cave theme is omnipresent and the cave adventure world is another reason for a long break, because there is a lot to discover in the cave, the adventure museum and on a large adventure playground, which is of course particularly interesting for children. Towards the end of the tour, all the hustle and bustle is over. Now it's getting cozy. Because none other than the world-famous Steiff teddy bear comes from Giengen an der Brenz. Here is the very interesting Steiff Museum and the birthplace of Margarete Steiff, which you can visit as part of a guided tour. And of course there are not only furry bears here, but also cozy accommodations - an all-round cozy stage destination that awaits you here.
... nice that there are so many accommodations, a beer garden in Lindenau would be nice
