Grafensteige premium hiking trails
Hiking at the Swabian Alb
Hiking around Bad Urach in the Swabian Alb mountains, a UNESCO biosphere reserve, is a truly memorable experience. The five outstanding Grafensteige premium hiking trails take hikers to numerous natural beauty spots. The one thing they all have in common is the strenuous activity needed to get up to the Alb plateau. So sturdy footwear is also strongly recommended. Hikers are rewarded with varied trails, breathtaking views from viewpoints into the Erms Valley, waterfalls, castle ruins and impressive mountainside beech forests.Incidentally, in summer 2016 the waterfall path was voted by readers of specialist magazine “Wandermagazin” to be “Germany’s most beautiful hiking trail 2016”.
