Climate friendly travel
Comfortably to Tübingen by train and without traffic jams.
The Swabian Alb is a dream for nature lovers, hikers and pleasure seekers. Between Hochberg and Lemberg, at around 1000 meters two of the highest peaks in the Swabian Alb, pure happiness is at home. And the Maultasche, of course. But that's another story.
No one has that much timeIt would be impossible to even begin to list all the sights that await visitors to the Swabian Alb: there are simply too many. That's why we won't even mention Hohenzollern Castle, the magnificent ancestral seat of the famous noble family. We don't talk about the "Campus Galli", where a medieval monastery is currently being reconstructed. Or about the Wimsen Cave, the only water cave in Germany that can be entered by boat. Let's not forget the Vogelherd Archaeopark in Niederstotzingen, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We also leave out the "Grafensteige" premium hiking trails around Bad Urach, as well as the Schömberg reservoir in the Zollernalbkreis district or the Münsingen Alb Painting Museum for contemporary artists. Even the Schloss Lichtenstein adventure park for active summer visitors is not presented here, because there are really only two things you need to know. First: The Swabian Alb is a low mountain range in the south of Germany, almost 200 kilometers long, with numerous opportunities for leisure activities in unspoiled nature. And secondly: It really is very beautiful everywhere here!
Be sure to try the Maultaschen, too, because they are right at home here. Fun fact: Supposedly, the Swabians invented the Maultaschen, dumplings with finely spiced meat filling, only to be able to eat meat unnoticed even on fasting days. And that too in a house of God: the Maulbronn Monastery. You just have to love them, the Swabians!
