Kunstmühlefelsen mit Waldliegen


Hiking around Bad Urach means discovering dramatic cliff faces, waterfalls, castle ruins, caves, lush forests and meandering rivers. The Maisental valley is one of the most popular areas with our hikers, as it is the starting point to discover the Urach Waterfall, the Güterstein Waterfall and (following a steep hike) the stunning views from the Hohenurach Castle ruins, the Rutschen and Eppenzill cliffs. A hike around the Hohenwittlingen castle ruins or the Seeburg district in the upper Ermstal valley is also much recommended.
