      The Löwenpfad "climbing tour" in Geislingen an der Steige is particularly suitable for railway enthusiasts and the longest Löwenpfad. Overcoming the Alb uphill with the train was a great challenge for the engineers. The route is called the first and steepest mountain crossing in continental Europe. A special highlight are the ever-opening views of the winding and steep railway line. Worth a visit is the Straub Mill, which offers regional products in the mill shop and down-to-earth Swabian cuisine.On this challenging and varied hiking tour, we first follow the paths of the Swabian century structure "Geislinger Steige" and learn interesting facts about the industrialization of Geislingen on a part of the "adventure trail Geislinger Steige" equipped with information boards.At the beginning we pass Geislingens most popular lookout points castle ruin Helfenstein and the medieval Ödenturm and enjoy the view directly over the historical old town and the Geislinger Steige.Where the trail follows the valley, we hike up to the Albtrauf for a second time, along natural trails and discover new perspectives on the Geislinger Steige and the Rohrachtal nature reserve from the opposite side.Finally we see from the Ostlandkreuz all five valleys of the city and see far into the lower Filstal up to the Hohenstaufen.

      Take in the high air on the Löwenpfad "Höhenrunde" in Bad Ditzenbach. A round with lots of views into the upper Filstal - who loves the Albtrauf, comes here fully at his expense. A detour to the ruin Hiltenburg am Schlossberg should definitely be planned, because it is one of the best preserved Helfensteiner castles in the district.Starting from the trail parking lot at the house of the guest, the loop runs first through the center of Bad Ditzenbach past the Catholic Church Sanct Laurentius. Shortly afterwards we are already awaited by the first ascent to Eckfelsen lookout point and then along the Albtrauf to Oberbergfels. This is 750 meters and is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the Upper Filstal. Further on the route there is the possibility to deviate 200 m from the path and to comfortably stop in the "castle ruin" Berneck.Further on the Schonterhöhe lead kilometer-long natural paths to Badfelsen direction Gosbach and on to the next highlight of the tour, the Tierstein. Here are 737 vertical meters with fascinating views of the eaves. The tour continues to the hiking car park "Aimer" with barbecue and playground. From there, the descent follows back to Bad Ditzenbach to the trail parking lot at the house of the guest.
