Vacation on the Ostalb
The Ostalb holiday region surrounding our farmstead offers many opportunities for fun, leisure and outdoor sports. Our mountains have excellent routes that are popular with hikers and mountain bikers. You can also learn gliding or paragliding here. In winter, cross-country trails lead directly past our premises. There are three small ski resorts nearby and even a husky sled tour can be started right there.
"Our region is known for ingenuity, sustainable agriculture and as a place for bon vivants."
Natural attractions such as the sea of rocks, the origin of the river Rems, the meteorite crater at the Steinheimer Becken or the Brenztopf are just around the corner. All can be reached as a day trip by ebike. Aalen is located in the immediate vicinity, and its city center is ideal for a stroll. You can visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site Limes or enjoy a day of wellness in the Limes Thermal Baths. In Heidenheim, there is the Hellenstein Castle with a seasonal opera festival. The Steiff Museum is located right next to it. The old Staufer town of Schwäbisch Gmünd, still a silver and gold town today, is also a very popular destination.
Our region is known for ingenuity, sustainable agriculture and as a place for bon vivants.
