  • Albschäferweg

    On the third stage, the quiet and secluded nature of the Swabian Alb awaits you. You leave Anhausen and follow the Albschäferweg over comfortable forest paths and along extensive pastures to Heldenfingen.Right on the edge of the path you will find the Heldenfinger Kliff, a remnant of the steep coast of an ancient sea that was branded against the rocks here 15 million years ago.You continue hiking from here and you will soon reach the extensive Hungerbrunnental, past the Banzhaf sheep farm and Wacholderheiden. The lush valley is surrounded by forest on both sides and apart from other hikers and a few sheep, nothing will remind you of civilization here. After a short crossing of the country road, you follow the beautiful, natural path and can switch off from your everyday life perfectly.Shortly before your destination in Gerstetten, you can take a break at the tree-lined Egleen lakes and enjoy the magnificent view on a bench. From here it is only a short distance to the center of the village.On the third stage you will find both the Banzhaf bakery and the Ochsen country inn in Heldenfingen. The bakery supplies you with fresh baked goods from Monday to Saturday from 5.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., the shop is only closed in the afternoons on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. The inn is open daily from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., only closed on Wednesday afternoons. Seasonally, the traditional roast lamb with Heidenheimer Knöpfle is on the menu.At the end of the stage in Gerstetten, you may have to look for an overnight stay in Gussenstadt or in Ochsen in Heldenfingen. The transport there will be organized by your hosts. If you just love it, then take a look at the Kulturhof Erpfenhausen. There is a shepherd's cart ready to stay overnight.
