Wohlfühlen mit Charme in Heidenheim

Unforgettable tours through the Brenztal Valley

The Brenz region is part of the Swabian Alps Geopark. Once flooded by prehistoric oceans, this unique countryside has been shaped over millions of years.

River valleys and dry valleys are peppered with impressive rock structures and rich heath lands cover the slopes.

The Brenz River originates from a karstic spring in Königsbronn and flows through the region like a glittering ribbon, all the way into the adjoining Donautal Valley. The picturesque surrounding guarantees a relaxing experience for cyclists and connoisseurs alike.

Enjoy your stay!
