    The last stage of the Albschäferweg is also the longest tour of this long distance hike. So you have enough time before you have to say goodbye to her.You leave Ballmertshofen heading west and soon reach the Bavarian border. The Albschäferweg meanders through dense forest and past meadows past the small village Zöschingen.Again and again today alternate short forest with fields and heathland and after nine days you have quickly found your rhythm again. Happy and full of energy, you continue hiking and crossing the border to Baden-Württemberg.Soon after you leave the forest completely and in front of you the wide meadows of the Ostalb spread out. Leisurely, it goes with fantastic views down to Giengen. Before you reach the city center, it is still worth the detour to the pavilion. From the small viewing platform, you can take a last look at the vastness of the Alb, before you have to say goodbye to her.Your last steps on the Albschäferweg lead you to the cozy city center of Giengen. But after ten days in peaceful nature, even this little town seems like a metropolis to you. With a satisfied smile you think back to the heathland, the meadows and the peaceful forests before you start your journey home.The last stage unfortunately offers no refreshments along the way. Fortunately, there are plenty of shopping opportunities in Ballmertshofen, so you can equip yourself in advance with a good backpack vesper.
