\u00a0<\/p>\n

The L\u00f6wenpfad \"Geislinger Felsen-Tour\" in Eybach is a hiking loop trail certified by the German Hiking Association. The approximately 10.3 kilometer long and sporty hike begins at the parking lot at the SC site in Geislingen. Follow the steep path up to the Anwand rock and be rewarded with a fantastic panoramic view of the town of Geislingen an der Steige. Then it continues along the Trauf in the direction of the Himmels\u2019 rock, the landmark of Eybach, with its beautiful views of the valley.<\/p>\n

Continue the forest path downhill to Eybach. Through the charming and idyllic town centre you reach the car park at the end of Felsentalstra\u00dfe. It goes slightly uphill through the wildly romantic Felsen valley. After the striking steps at the rock formations, the path branches off to the right towards the village of Weiler. Once on the Alb plateau, the path continues along the Albtrauf to the Bismarck rock. From there you walk downhill on a narrow path in the direction of Geislingen an der Steige back to the starting point.<\/p>\n

The Himmelsfelsen at 609 m is Eybach's distinctive landmark and characterizes the Eybach valley. From the 13th to the 18th century there was a castle on the rock. The Knights of Eybach are known to be the first inhabitants. The last tenants who lived there were the Degenfelders. The Degenfelders themselves had already built their castle at the foot of the rock in Eybach from 1540-1546.<\/p>

The 65 m high steep face of the Himmelsfelsen was conquered for the first time in 1934 by two climbers from Stuttgart. The rocks are now closed for climbing for nature conservation reasons.<\/p>

Eybtal nature reserve<\/b><\/p>

With over 1,300 hectares, the \"Eybtal\" nature reserve with parts of the L\u00e4ngental and Rohrach valleys is the largest nature reserve in the administrative district of Stuttgart. It lies to a large extent within Geislinger district and contains impressive treasures: 20 striking White Jura rocks, near-natural forests, numerous gorge forests and blades, springs, streams and meadow orchards as well as 400 animal and plant species, some of which are on the red list of the endangered species. The wildly romantic rocky valley is impressive at any time of the year.<\/p>

Geislingen an der Steige:<\/b><\/p>

Geislingen an der Steige is beautifully embedded in the landscape of the Swabian Albtrauf adventure region. Convince yourself on a hike and experience Geislingen's most popular vantage points such as Helfenstein castle ruins, \u00d6denturm, Ostlandkreuz and numerous striking rock formations. The green city in the five valleys with the largest nature reserve in the Stuttgart region invites you to be discovered from all perspectives. A stroll through the pedestrian zone and the dreamy corners of the historic old town as well as a stop let your active hiking day end comfortably. And if you still want to go bargain hunting in the outlet after the hiking experience, irresistibly cheap offers await you all year round in the factory outlets around the WMF fish hall.<\/p>","booking":null,"culture":false,"difficulty":1,"directions":"The approximately 10.3 kilometer long and sporty hike begins at the car park at the SC site in Geislingen.
