My tour goes from the hiking car park in Amstetten above the Mühltalfels with a view of the Geislinger train route to the Michael Knolle memorial to the Ödenturm with a wonderful view of Geislingen to the Helfenstein castle ruins. Here, too, a great view of Geislingen. Continue through the old town to the Ostland Cross Sentinel opposite. The return journey then over the Tiroler Fels, Geiselsteinhaus, Wittenberger Fels back to Amstetten.
The highlight of this tour is the wonderful view on both sides of the Geislinger Steige along the entire circular tour, of course with the Ödenturm and the castle ruin Helfenstein.

Route from the parking lot in the open-air museum Beuren over Beurener rock, Brucker rock, Wilhelmsfels and castle Hohenneuffen.Visible from afar, the 743 m high rock massif of Hohenneuffen emerges from the Albtrauf. Its rocky outcrop bears a heterogeneous ensemble of ruins, which in its core goes back to a high medieval hilltop castle.
From the castle you have a magnificent view along the Albkette over the wide Neckarland, over the Stuttgart heights to the Black Forest and the Swabian mountains. The popular Neuffener Täleswein thrives on its slopes.
The entrance to the castle is free. There is a restaurant with beer garden and as an addition a wonderful wide view :-)
It is open Monday to Friday every day at 3pm and on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays at 1pm and 3pm castle tours.
The falconry Wolfgang Weller comes every Sunday and public holiday at 12, 14 and 16 o'clock with his falconry show on the castle.

The majority of the castle complex belongs to the military area, in addition there are rooms of the Förderkreis Bundesfestung Ulm in the Kehlturm.
As part of the redirection of the Bundeswehr announced in 2011 by Defense Minister Thomas de Maizière, the Ulm command was reclassified on 1 July 2013 to the Multinational Command Operational Leadership / Multinational Joint Headquarters Ulm. Members of the armed forces of almost 20 European states are stationed in the Wilhelmsburg barracks.
The courtyard is used for official events of the Bundeswehr and the Theater Ulm for outdoor performances. In addition, the Förderkreis Bundesfestung offers a free tour on the 3rd Sunday of every month at 11 o'clock. A registration is not necessary.

An official route that the town of Owen an der Teck has on the homepage.
"The Dwarves of Owen" - route number 3.
Starting point is the trail parking lot "Maienwasen" then Engelberg / Spitzenberg / open-air museum Beuren and on the Beurener rock back to the trail parking lot.
A detour to the open-air museum is always worthwhile.

Unfortunately, I did not save the route offline, so there is not much of a track here. From the trail parking lot "Brucker Sägmühle" to the Schiller Grotto.
If you want to make a detour to the rogue blade here on this route - this is completely blocked by a landslide until further notice.
