Albschäferweg and Schwäbische Alb planned a hike.
March 26, 2021
On your fifth stage, you leave the Steinheim Basin in the morning and climb to the northern edge of the crater. With a beautiful view of the crater, you walk comfortably along the edge of the forest and soon after you reach the Wental.In the Wental there are countless large and small rocks and stone formations made of dolomite limestone. The Albschäferweg leads you directly through the valley and its unique landscape. After you have marveled at all the rocks, the hiking trail leads you through a dense mixed forest towards the stage destination.While you hike along the forest paths and forest roads between the towering trunks, you will find a unique calm in the peaceful nature. Happy and satisfied you finally reach the stage destination Zang. There you can spend the night in a rustic, but with a little more luxury in the wooden wagons at the Löwenwirt. It's easier in the deer.The Landhotel Wental with an attached restaurant is halfway through the Wental. If you don't have a backpack vesper with you, you can take a leisurely break here. The restaurant is open from Tuesday to Sunday. Otherwise you can easily get provisions in the supermarkets in Steinheim. The Löwenwirt in Zang serves dishes from the Ostalb lamb.
