Wohlfühlen mit Charme in Heidenheim

Tracking in the Brenz region 

Primordial age - Ice age - Hiking age...

The Brenz region is known as one of the most beautiful areas of the Swabian Alps. Millions of years have shaped the Geopark and its many mysteries are waiting to be uncovered. Lively river-courses, forests with open countryside, and scenic heath lands that are commonly used by local shepherds as grazing grounds for their cattle.

Choose between hiking trips in the Eselsburgertal Valley, a variety of 5 tours in the area around Heidenheim, or 17 different hiking tours involving exclusive sites such as the ocean of boulders, karstic springs, caves, and meteorite craters.

The 5 day “shepherd’s hike” is another great option. The total distance of 158 km can be split into 10 stages.
