09/09/2021Today my tour led me along the renatured Brenz first to the beautiful, protected Eselsburger valley. This great river valley is always a sight, no matter what time of year.Via Bolheim, the Ugenhof, the Rieblinger Hof and the Lindenhöfe I reached my actual destination, the historic Heldenfinger Kliff on the Heidenheimer Alb.Heldenfinger Kliff was part of the rocky coast of the Tertiary Sea 15 million years ago and is considered by geologists to be the best-preserved fossil beach.See: geopark-alb.de/de/Heldenfinger-KliffMy former neighbor, Karl-Dieter, lives right next to this natural monument, whom I met again today after more than four decades. We attended the technical school in Heidenheim together from 1972-74 and of course had a lot to talk about.After this pleasant meeting, my tour took me over part of the Hungerbrunntal, past an ammunition depot and past Setzingen to the excursion restaurant to the Gasthaus Schlößle in Lindenau. After a short break for refreshments, we went back to O-Medlingen via Stetten, Sontheim and Brenz.
