  • Albschäferweg

    After your relaxing night in the small Albdorf Zang, you stroll a few more steps through the village. If you feel like it, then the detour to the small village pond is worthwhile. The pond is idyllically located between the small houses.Then you leave the village to the east. The Albschäferweg leads you along the edge of the forest and after a short stretch of forest you will already reach the first houses of Königsbronn. Before you continue hiking towards Itzelberger See, you can make a detour to the rocky spur of the former Herwartstein Castle. From up here you have a great view over the place and the idyllic Brenztal.If you like, you can leave the Albschäferweg at the castle to have a look at the Brenztopf in Königsbronn (there and back about one kilometer). But you can also stay in the valley and hike via the cloister courtyard to Lake Itzelberger See. The rock-lined source of the Brenz is in the middle of the village, where you can also find a café and a butcher's shop.The Albschäferweg then leads you along the banks of the Itzelberger See with further refreshment stops and a boat station. Here you leave the Brenztal and hike through a large mixed forest with a protected forest area to the stage destination Heidenheim.This tour ends at the Naturfreundehaus hiking home on Hahnenschnabel. above Heidenheim and is surrounded by heathland and forests and peppered with viewpoints. Unfortunately, the Naturfreundehaus is currently closed. But you can already find places to stay on the way down to town.
