In the UNESCO biosphere area "Swabian Alb" flocks of sheep graze on the juniper heaths and the flowery dry meadows. The white limestone cliffs gleam in the sun against the blue sky and clear streams ripple in the idyllic valleys. You cycle through this unique area, which is under UNESCO protection, on well-developed cycle paths and small side roads. On the high plateaus of the Swabian Alb with its extensive meadow valleys, you can go on wonderful bike tours. Used by the people of Baden-Württemberg as a local recreation area on Sundays, you only meet a few people here on the rest of the weekdays. Then, as a cyclist, you have the quiet landscape almost to yourself and can really enjoy it. Discover the varied, traditional cultural landscape of the Swabian Jura in the new UNESCO biosphere area.

About 20 liters of water per second gush from it from a depth of 2000 m and at the same time it is the entrance for cave divers into one of the largest cave systems in the Swabian Jura. Other sights are the hammer mill, the tanning district and the prehistoric museum.

Shady forest paths, green meadows and high rock faces alternate on the fantastic cycle route. Other sights along the cycle path are the Marbach State Stud with its Arabian breed, the Jewish cemetery in Buttenhausen and a snail garden. In the afternoon you will reach St. Johann, where you will spend two nights.

Today you go on an eventful and scenic tour of the Reutlinger Alb. At the Albtrauf, the plateau of the Swabian Alb breaks off steeply into the valleys and the foothills of the Alb. From the white limestone rocks you often have a magnificent view. The Lichtenstein Castle, enthroned high above the valley, is a frequently photographed landmark of the Swabian Jura. You cycle on the car-free paths over the plateau to the Fohlenhof, a branch of the Württemberg main and state stud in Marbach. Passing the slide rock, from which you have a magnificent view of the Ermstal with Bad Urach, you return to St. Johann.
