Surroundings & Recreation

Blaubeuren and Seissen are the ideal starting point for hikes to get to know the beautiful landscape in the near and far. Discover parts of the Swabian Alb Biosphere Reserve by bike or explore one of the many caves near e.g. the Laichinger Tiefenhöhle or Schertelshöhle in Westerheim.

The Blautopf in Blaubeuren has a unique play of colours and is one of the deepest and most beautiful karst springs of the Swabian Alb. In the immediate vicinity is the Convent, founded in 1085 Blaubeuren with its major altar and choir stalls. The about 40,000-year-old and carved from mammoth ivory figure of "Venus of Hohle Fels" is on display at Blaubeuren prehistoric museum.

Discover the city of Ulm with the Ulm Cathedral with the tallest spire in the world, the Fishermen's Quarter, the Leaning House (schiefes Haus), the federal fortress or the monastery Wiblingen. These are just some of the sights that await you in Ulm.

Also for the holidays with children has the Swabian Alb lot to offer, such as the climbing forest Laichingen, Legoland, Tiefenhöhle Laichingen, canoeing in Lautertal, slate quarry Owen & Holzmaden, Wilhelma Stuttgart, etc.
