    One thing is always present on this tour: Hohenzollern Castle, where you can always enjoy great views. Otherwise, the ride is very varied. Relaxed passages on bike paths alternate with really beautiful trails and demanding climbs. We wish you a lot of fun on this long round, which will introduce you to Albstadt, Balingen and Burladingen, the three largest cities of Zollernalb.You start in Balingen, where already the drive through the beautiful city and past the Zollern Castle is a highlight in itself. On the way to Zillhausen you get a good taste of the beautiful trails that await you on the Alb - including a stop at a rushing waterfall, where you can cool down in astonishment.From now on, it tends to be uphill, up to the Alb, even if your ride is always loosened up by short descents. The highest point of the tour is the Raichberg. From up here, the view of the Hohenzollern Castle is especially beautiful. And only the view of the next kilometers: Finest trails are waiting for you. This time tends downhill!After a long descent down to Killertal you reach Jungingen. The small town offers itself for a break - from the bakery to the health food store there are plenty of opportunities to strengthen oneself. By the way, you do not have to worry: the name of the Killer Valley goes back to the Lords of Killer, who resided not far from here in a moated castle. Whether these men had dirt on the plug is not known to us. If it does, the danger has long been banned: Albert of Killer fell in 1377 in the Battle of Reutlingen.Back to the tour. This now follows the Starzel, a small tributary of the Neckar and accordingly, the ride is relatively flat from here. It will not change until you get back to Balingen. So you can "relax" and enjoy the beautiful landscape and picturesque villages for a while.
