Description

Mythos Schwäbische Alb im Landkreis Reutlingen e.V. · Alle Rechte vorbehalten

\n

It is not by chance that Ehingen is located on the Upper Swabian Baroque Route (Oberschw\u00e4bische Barockstra\u00dfe): around the 17th century, the town experienced its real heyday as the seat of various Swabian and Austrian estates (the Landst\u00e4nde). Religious orders, such as the Franciscans, Benedictines and Cistercians, also happily settled here and left behind impressive vestiges of their presence in the form of monasteries, seminaries and churches.<\/p>\n

Villages and castles<\/strong><\/p>\n

Ehingen includes 17 attractive villages, nestled in the extensive landscape of the Alb plateau and the delightful Danube valley. Shaped by agriculture over many centuries, today these are popular destinations for cyclists and walkers thanks to their authentic and original character. The Ehinger Besinnungsweg (contemplative trail) is roughly 50 kilometres long and has won several awards. It offers a unique way to enjoy the natural and cultural landscape of the region.<\/p>\n

As part of the Swabian Alb Biosphere Reserve, Ehingen is the ideal starting point for trips to see the natural wonders of Gro\u00dfes Lautertal, the \"Blautopf\" spring in Blaubeuren, or the magnificent Renaissance ch\u00e2teau at Mochental at the foot of the Swabian Alb.<\/p>\n

Well-being and enjoyment<\/strong><\/p>\n

Ehingen is a feel-good town. In addition to 53 varieties of beer produced by the five local breweries, guests and locals can enjoy an extensive culinary offering. The popular tourist hostelries in the picturesque surrounding districts mostly serve regional Swabian specialities, while in the main town itself the options range from pleasant caf\u00e9s and restaurants to sophisticated international cuisine. As a hotel destination, Ehingen offers visitors a wide choice of high-quality accommodation. The lively and attractive town centre is ideal for a leisurely stroll, pausing at one of the astonishing number of small independent businesses. Great importance is attached to hospitality and customer-focused service here.<\/p>","geocoordinates":{"longitude":9.7266348689803,"latitude":48.2824231},"highlight":true,"id":"f224aca5-dea2-42ca-b179-1333bad7eb40","invisible":false,"latitude":48.2824231,"license":"community","locale":"en","longitude":9.7266348689803,"name":"Ehingen (Danube)","sourceInformationLink":"","tipFamous":false,"tipHighlight":true,"tipIdyllic":false,"tipNatural":false,"tipOffTheTrack":false,"tipOnlyHere":false,"tipPopular":false,"tipTypicalForRegion":false,"type":"area","updatedAt":"2022-08-24T16:37:37","primaryCategory":{"id":"f1f04738-d0d7-46cb-9341-738fd4f8861a","name":"City","nameWithParents":"Area \u00bb Location \u00bb City","rootline":["f82359f3-b904-409d-a6bc-d70527e38d8f","f1f04738-d0d7-46cb-9341-738fd4f8861a"],"rootlineNames":["Area","Location","City"],"type":"city","invisible":false},"address":null,"client":{"id":"d5791a2e-a722-4ea8-a748-d7389e254234","name":"Ehingen (Donau)","url":"","logo":null,"legalClient":{"id":"d5791a2e-a722-4ea8-a748-d7389e254234","name":"Ehingen (Donau)","url":"","logo":null}},"author":"Stadt Ehingen Stadtmarketing Tourismus","copyright":"","externalIds":{"toubizLegacyRemoteId":"location_1465","toubizLegacy":"city.162374","toursprung":"20576616","tomasId":"FIT00020070072431210","outdoorActiveId":"1030170"},"languages":["de","en"],"awards":[],"permissions":{"read":true,"write":false,"delete":false},"classifications":[],"webMediaLinks":[],"sourceSystemInformation":[{"name":"mein.toubiz","createdItem":false,"lastTouchedAt":"2022-08-24T16:37:37","firstTouchedAt":"2021-11-10T10:34:07","comment":null}],"area":{"zipCodes":[]}},{"abstract":"

Der Luftkurort Hayingen ist seit Jahren ein beliebtes Urlaubsziel im Herzen des Geoparks und Biosph\u00e4rengebiets Schw\u00e4bische Alb. Sch\u00f6ne Fachwerkbauten im Ortskern bilden den Mittelpunkt zwischen dem romantischen Glastal und dem burgenreichen Gro\u00dfen Lautertal.\u00a0<\/p>","apiVersion":1,"currentInformation":"

TIPP: Anz\u00fcnden des Kohlemeilers auf der M\u00fcnzdorfer Kohlplatte am 26.05.2020 und am 04.08.2020 jeweils um 16 Uhr.<\/p>\n

Zweimal im Jahr schichtet der K\u00f6hler hier noch seinen Meiler auf, um in der althergebrachten Weise Holzkohle herzustellen. Leidenschaft und Tradition sind hier eng verbunden. Hier k\u00f6nnen Sie erleben, wie der K\u00f6hler 10 Tage seinen Meiler alle 2 Std. Tag und Nacht kontrolliert, wie er in der K\u00f6hlerh\u00fctte lebt, damit der Brennprozess richtig verl\u00e4uft. Lassen Sie sich die Gelegenheit nicht entgehen, dem K\u00f6hler direkt bei der Arbeit zuzusehen und auch direkt Fragen zu stellen. Das Anz\u00fcnden des Kohlemeilers ist immer ein kleiner Festakt und bis zum Ausziehen des Meilers stehen Getr\u00e4nke und Vesper f\u00fcr Besucher bereit. Auf Vorbestellung (bis 9 Uhr, Tel. 07386\/975494) werden auch H\u00e4hnchen vom Holzkohlegrill angeboten. Ca. 11-12 Tage nach dem Anz\u00fcnden findet am Samstag (nur bei trockenem Wetter) das \"Ausziehen\" des Kohlemeilers statt.<\/p>","description":"

Mit seinen T\u00e4lern und Hochfl\u00e4chen hat Hayingen mit die besten Klimawerte auf der Schw\u00e4bischen Alb. Die Natur ist sehr vielf\u00e4ltig, eingebettet in eine Mittelgebirgslandschaft bis zu 1000 Meter H\u00f6he, erleben Sie hier die Vielfalt der Natur. Duftende Wacholderheiden mit ihrer speziellen Flora, darunter auch seltene Orchideen und Silberdisteln pr\u00e4gen weite Teile des Landschaftsbildes. Vor allem Natur- und Wanderfreunde, aber auch Aktivurlauber und alle, die sich einfach nach Erholung und Ruhe sehnen k\u00f6nnen hier Kraft und Energie tanken.<\/p>\n

Eine geologische Besonderheit ist die Wimsener H\u00f6hle, die einzige, mit einem Kahn befahrbare Wasserh\u00f6hle in ganz Deutschland. Auch das von der UNESCO zum \"Immateriellen Kulturerbe\" ausgezeichnete Hayinger Naturtheater ist allein schon wegen seiner beeindruckenden Waldkulisse in den Sommermonaten einen Besuch wert.\u00a0<\/p>","geocoordinates":{"longitude":9.4784996642279,"latitude":48.275206},"highlight":false,"id":"6312b399-07ef-471f-865e-c11f6ce5e8f6","invisible":false,"latitude":48.275206,"license":"community","locale":"en","longitude":9.4784996642279,"name":"Hayingen","sourceInformationLink":"","tipFamous":false,"tipHighlight":false,"tipIdyllic":false,"tipNatural":false,"tipOffTheTrack":false,"tipOnlyHere":false,"tipPopular":false,"tipTypicalForRegion":false,"type":"area","updatedAt":"2021-08-26T16:02:02","primaryCategory":{"id":"f1f04738-d0d7-46cb-9341-738fd4f8861a","name":"City","nameWithParents":"Area \u00bb Location \u00bb City","rootline":["f82359f3-b904-409d-a6bc-d70527e38d8f","f1f04738-d0d7-46cb-9341-738fd4f8861a"],"rootlineNames":["Area","Location","City"],"type":"city","invisible":false},"address":null,"client":{"id":"44745774-cdc8-4c0a-a453-fb17f13ce876","name":"Hayingen","url":"https:\/\/www.naturerlebnis-hayingen.de\/","logo":{"id":"048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06","name":"logo_naturerlebnis_hayingen.png","description":"","url":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/storage\/client\/logo\/6831d73e850451d601113ab7dddfa462c3a1692f9515869d113c04f3f247c4d5.png","preview":{"image\/jpeg":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=500&fm=jpg","image\/webp":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=500&fm=webp"},"sizes":{"thumb":{"image\/jpeg":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=64&h=64&fm=jpg","image\/webp":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=64&h=64&fm=webp"},"medium":{"image\/jpeg":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=500&fm=jpg","image\/webp":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=500&fm=webp"}},"license":"none","path":"client\/logo\/6831d73e850451d601113ab7dddfa462c3a1692f9515869d113c04f3f247c4d5.png"},"legalClient":{"id":"44745774-cdc8-4c0a-a453-fb17f13ce876","name":"Hayingen","url":"https:\/\/www.naturerlebnis-hayingen.de\/","logo":{"id":"048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06","name":"logo_naturerlebnis_hayingen.png","description":"","url":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/storage\/client\/logo\/6831d73e850451d601113ab7dddfa462c3a1692f9515869d113c04f3f247c4d5.png","preview":{"image\/jpeg":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=500&fm=jpg","image\/webp":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=500&fm=webp"},"sizes":{"thumb":{"image\/jpeg":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=64&h=64&fm=jpg","image\/webp":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=64&h=64&fm=webp"},"medium":{"image\/jpeg":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=500&fm=jpg","image\/webp":"https:\/\/mein.toubiz.de\/api\/v1\/file\/048144db-81d1-414d-a8e8-47a54b50eb06\/6831d7\/view?w=500&fm=webp"}},"license":"none","path":"client\/logo\/6831d73e850451d601113ab7dddfa462c3a1692f9515869d113c04f3f247c4d5.png"}}},"author":"Elfriede Braunger","copyright":"","externalIds":{"toubizLegacy":"city.3016","toursprung":"20540824","toubizLegacyRemoteId":"location_1408","outdoorActiveId":"1015230","tomasId":"FIT00020070070970044"},"languages":["de"],"awards":[],"permissions":{"read":true,"write":false,"delete":false},"classifications":[],"webMediaLinks":[],"sourceSystemInformation":[],"area":{"zipCodes":[]}},{"abstract":"
