    After your restful sleep in the small Albdorf Zang, you will take a few more steps through the village. If you feel like it, then make a detour to the small village pond. The pond is idyllically located between the small houses.Then you leave the village to the east. The Albschäferweg leads you first along the edge of the forest and after a short stretch of forest you will reach the first houses of Königsbronn. Before you descend to the village center, you can make a detour to the rocky spur of the former castle Herwartstein. From up here you have a great view over the village and the idyllic Brenztal.If you like, you can leave the Albschäferweg on the way down to see the pots. The source of the Brenz lined with rocks lies in the middle of the village, where you can also find several inns and cafes.The Albschäferweg then leads you along the banks of the Brenz to the Itzelberger See. Here you leave the Brenz valley and wander through a large mixed forest on to the stage destination Heidenheim.This tour ends at the hiking home Naturfreundehaus Hahnenschnabel. Here you can stay for a fair price. The house is located just above Heidenheim and is surrounded by meadows and forests.
