Bike Touring Highlight
Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
Planned by Albtäler-Radweg
On the fifth stage of the Albtäler cycle tour, it goes up high: At almost 850 meters altitude you cycle today. Of course that requires a bit of you, but the slopes are feasible and many beautiful sights on the edge of the track always provide for small breather. At the very end, the reward is only downhill to the starting point of the round trip in Amstetten.You start in Wiesensteig and continue cycling up the Upper Filstal. It goes up again on the plateaus of the Alb - at the top there's even a "summit cross" and wonderful views. The highest point you have done, now you roll a bit until you reach the mountain village Westerheim, which invites you to stop.About really nice bike paths you drive on to Laichingen. Here it is worth stopping in the 55 meter deep Laichinger Tiefenhöhle, to which also a museum and a restaurant are connected. If you're in the mood for dizzying heights, the next door climbing forest is just the thing for you.A rather culinary highlight is waiting for you in Nellingen. Here at the Gasthof Krone the Alb whiskey is made, which is said to be especially rare and delicious. How about a small tasting? From here it is not far to the starting point of the tour in Amstetten and it is almost only downhill, so you can treat yourself to this culinary break quietly. If you prefer to wait until the very end, that is not a problem: in the old station building in Amstetten is a restaurant that is perfect for a hearty meal after five days on the beautiful Albtäler bike ride.
