Swabian Alb

Premium Hiking Trails on the Alb Escarpment (Albtrauf)

Impressions of the hiking tour 'Swabian Alb'

The Swabian Alb is an attractive, high-altitude landscape in Baden-Württemberg. The steep, rugged high plateaus provide hikers with glorious views of the Zollernalbkreis.

The steep escarpment, known as the Albtrauf, separates the high plateau from the Alb foreland. The hikes on the Albtrauf are therefore called Traufgänge in German, and the hikers are Traufgänger.

Fixed quarters in Albstadt, the southwestern centre of the Swabian Alb, situated at an altitude of more than 700 m. Seven Premium Hiking Trails around Albstadt, which have all been granted a quality seal by the German Hiking Institute, can be hiked on professionally laid and marked trails – a natural, unique and unmistakeable Alb landscape.

All of the hikes are planned as circular routes and can be reached quite easily using public transport.

There are 7 routes to choose from. The trails can be hiked in random order!

  • 7 or 4 overnight stays in 4 or 3-star hotel in Albstadt

Individual hiking tours in Germany can be hiked at the stated times without a hiking guide, also by individuals. We provide you with all of the necessary materials, such as hiking map, tour description, etc.

Guided hiking tours in Germany differ from the individual tours in that an experienced guide with local knowledge accompanies you during the entire tour.

On our fixed quarters tours you start out on a hike every day from your fixed quarters, on a route that will lead you back to your hotel. We arrange all necessary transfers, which are usually provided by the local hotels.
