Schwäbische Alb
 

About Schwäbische Alb

„Es war einmal...“ So beginnen die schönsten Geschichten – auch die der Schwäbischen Alb, die in uralten Zeiten ihren Anfang nahm und noch lange nicht zu Ende erzählt ist.Natur und Mensch haben dieses Mittelgebirge zu einer einmaligen Landschaft geformt. Ein tropisches Meer schuf das imposante Hochplateau, dessen Abbruchkante, der Albtrauf, Wanderer mit weiten Blicken übers Albvorland beglückt. Wasser hat unzählige geheimnisvolle Höhlen in das Karstgestein gegraben. Besonders die noch sehr junge, unbekümmerte Donau prägt die Alb seit Jahrmillionen. Schon vor fast 40 000 Jahren durchstreiften Menschen ihre wilden Täler und rauen Hochflächen und hinterließen hier die ältesten Kunstobjekte der Menschheit – ein kulturelles Vermächtnis, das unter dem Schutz der UNESCO steht. Mit zertifizierten Albguides kann man auf Entdeckungstour gehen zu Aussichtskanzeln, Flusstälern, Karsthöhlen und der alten Kulturlandschaft der Wacholderheiden, die durch die Tradition der Schäferei bis heute bewahrt wird.

      You will get even more castles and palaces on this tour, which takes you from Rottenburg through the Schönbuch Nature Park. You will pass no less than nine castles and palaces on the way and you can dream yourself into the past at the sight of them.The tour starts at the train station in Rottenburg. At the beginning you cycle along the Neckar out of the city, then it goes over meadows and fields to Tübingen. Here you cross the Neckar and roll through the city below Hohentübingen Castle. A detour up to the castle is worthwhile, because the view over Tübingen and the surrounding area is fabulous.There follows a great section around the Österberg, which brings you back to the Neckar. Always close to the river you cycle to Kirchentellinsfurt. Here you cross the Neckar again and start with a challenging ascent to Einsiedel. A slightly more moderate slope then leads you into the beautiful Schönbuch Nature Park. Refreshing forest and healthy nature welcome you here. It is worth taking a break in these beautiful surroundings at the Bebenhausen monastery and the royal hunting lodge in the middle of the forest.On the way out of Schönbuch you will pass Hohenentringen Castle. Here you can strengthen yourself on the terrace of the restaurant and enjoy the unforgettable view. This is followed by a rapid descent into the valley, where you meet the Ammer. You follow its course via Poltringen to Reusten, then turn south and follow the route over wide fields back to Rottenburg.

Impressive rock formations, castles and palaces line your way through the valley - it is therefore worthwhile to plan a stop here and there. Especially the famous Beuron Monastery is a perfect stopover.At the end of the second stage in Sigmaringen, you can easily take the train back to Donaueschingen and, in summer, also take the special bike wagon on the Nature Park Express bus.You can find the first stage here: komoot.de/tour/375804006

      The Wadenbeißer is a wonderful, short mountain bike ride that does what it says on the tin. Crisp uphills, technical single trails and a whopping 460 meters in altitude over just 19 kilometers are a challenge, even for experienced riders. But the tour offers a lot of variety in the form of a great view, shady deciduous forests and cozy restaurants.You start the tour at Waldheim Ebingen, which you can make a note of for your stop after the tour. Behind it, the first downhill descent (S2) with a few tight switchbacks awaits you, the Schlossfelsen Trail. This turns almost directly into a flowing S1 trail with cheering potential. The landscape is enchanting as you shoot over lush green meadows.Then it's time for the real kneeling part of the ride: an uphill stretch of around four kilometers with steep inclines is waiting for you. If you want a break now, the Gasthaus Süßer Grund is waiting for you. After a short descent, it goes a little more gently up another long piece until you reach the Schönhaldenfelsen with restaurant and can shoot downhill on the Schönhalden Trail.The big end then waits for the end: the last steep uphill takes you back to the starting point, where you can take a seat in the beer garden with burning calves and an isotonic cold drink is certainly very welcome.

      With the GONSO Trail you can follow in the footsteps of the bike marathon around Albstadt! Crisp climbs and steep descents mix here with overland passages through the wonderful nature of the Swabian Alb. For the ultimate marathon racing feeling, you end up in the bull valley.The tour begins at the Zollern-Alb-Halle in Tailfingen and takes you over the first strong uphill to the heights of the Schlossberg. From here it is not far to the Albstadt bike park, if you fancy a few laps downhill. Then you continue to pedal towards the Degerfeld airfield, where you can stop if you don't miss out on enjoyment today.Passing the Linkenboldshöhle, the exit continues uphill towards Raichberg and the Zollersteighof. If the almost 1,000 vertical meters and 46 kilometers of this tour are not enough for you, you can make a short detour to the Zeller Horn from here, from where you can catch fantastic views of Hohenzollern Castle.Behind the beautifully embedded Eyach spring, the hammer-hard Burgfelder Steige is waiting for you, but with a rapid descent it is worth every missed grain. A final ascent to the Lerchenfeld then brings you to the home straight into the Bullentäle, where you will feel like a marathon champion even without an audience.
