Swabian Mountains

The Swabian Mountains offer lots of cultural and leisure options and guarantee your wellbeing with a variety of local specialities and wellness options.

Walk, exploring old mills, conquer fairy-tale castles, discover the cradle of human culture, enjoy local produce - a holiday in the Swabian Mountains is all about variety.

Worlds of adventure such as the Albtrauf, at the heart of the Swabian Mountains geo-park, bring to life the challenging natural landscape between the rugged mountains and the lowlands covered in fruit trees. Over 2000 caves invite to take a journey to a time long, long ago. You can enjoy the unique landscape in the Upper Danube natural park on a walk, or on a climbing or canoe tour.

From the imposing Hohenzollern castle, the romantic Lichtenstein castle to the medieval Stauferburg castle: the Swabian Mountains ranks as the most fortress and castle rich area in the whole of Germany.

You can also savour unusual culinary specialities such as mountain lamb, mountain buffalo or mountain lentils here.

And for anyone who wants to balance body and soul: the thermal spas and Kneipp facilities in the Swabian mountains will certainly help.
