\u00a0<\/p>\n

The path meanders over short, steep steps down to Degenfeld and shortly afterwards along the Schweintal back uphill again to the Alb plateau. After that you pass the L\u00fctzelalb and follow narrow paths into a valley to Wei\u00dfenstein with its picturesque castle. Next you walk past the castle through impressive beech forests in a zigzag path up to the Albtrauf again and then along the edge, to the descent above the city of Nenningen before coming back to the starting point of the tour.<\/p>\n

Visit to the world-famous Pieta in Nenningen:<\/strong><\/p>

World art at the foot of the Alb - The small Nenningen cemetery chapel contains a treasure that many international museums envy the city of Lauterstein for. This unique ensemble with the Pieta by the famous Bavarian court sculptor Franz Ignaz G\u00fcnther was created after the famine of 1772. The chapel and pieta only unfold their full effect when they are in unity. For those seeking consolation, the Lamentation of the Virgin Mary is a help, for art connoisseurs the pictorial work, which has already been shown in London, Paris and Brussels, also represents the high point and end point of southern German Rococo.<\/p>
