This tour starts at the S-Bahn station in Herrenberg. After a short detour to the beautiful old town, you pedal up to the Schönbuch Nature Park, where countless gravel paths are waiting for you. The feeling of space is particularly impressive, because the nature park looks huge. Several sections of the route go through game reserves, each of which is fenced. Please don't forget to close the rickety-looking gates behind you.In Dettenhausen, it is worth stopping for coffee and cake at Café Mieze before continuing through Schönbuch into the old town of Tübingen and through the courtyard of Hohentübingen Castle. Here you will have to push a few meters. For gravel newbies there is the option of ending the tour in Tübingen. The Deutsche Bahn will take you comfortably back to Stuttgart from here.As you leave the university town on a ridge path, you will soon catch your first glimpses of the next highlight, the Wurmlinger Chapel. If you see a horse on a treadmill after leaving the chapel, you are not dehydrated. The path leads directly past a horse rehabilitation clinic.Now there is a longer ascent back to the Schönbuch plateau. Once at the top, all single trail fans will have their real joy. On officially signposted trails, it goes back to the Naturfreundehaus Herrenberg in a flowing manner. From here you roll back to the old town of Herrenberg on asphalted paths.
