Albtraufgänger

- a breathtaking scenery

With its slogan “Discover – Taste – Breathe”, the Albtraufgänger leads you through the terrific landscape of the Swabian Alb.

 

The unique landscape of the “Trauf” of the Swabian Alb builds the character on the 113 kilometres and six stages of the Leading Quality Trail “Albtraufgänger”. Silent juniper heathlands, botanically valuable orchid meadows, idyllic meadows with scattered fruit trees, mysterious caves and impressive castle ruins on prominent rockfaces characterize the region Swabian Albtrauf from and to Wiesensteig.

Gentle mountain tops, valleys and health-enhancing springs await their discovery. Breathtaking panoramic views from striking rocky promontories and volcanic cliffs stretch across the country. Small villages with historic half-timbered houses tell their story. Art and culinary delicacies with a Swabian tradition are an added bonus. The art of cookery in the »Ländle« is a lot more than just the well-known and tasty »Spätzle«. The route of the Albtraufgänger catches these enchanting facets of the region and offers recreation and adventure at the same time.

In addition to the unmistakable panoramic views, the region between Stuttgart and Ulm also boasts the three thermal baths in Bad Boll, Bad Ditzenbach and Bad Überkingen, which are combined in the »BäderTicket«. If you are fancy on shopping, why not taking a detour to the well-known Kräuterhaus Sanct Bernhard in Bad Ditzenbach and the City Outlet at Geislingen an der Steige with its popular firms.

 

The Albtraufgänger leads along the Albtrauf from Wiesensteig to Gingen an der Fils, Geislingen an der Steige und Bad Ditzenbach and back. High-quality guesthouses, hiking lodges and cabins along the way offer a rich gastronomy and accommodations for every taste. A GPS-suitable hiking map with all route markers (map scale 1:25 000, ISBN number: 978-3-9811016-5-2) is available for 5,70 € at www.verlag-wegweiser.de.
