This round tour for children leads past many orchards through the heart of the Steinlach Valley and connects the places where top-class writers once worked. On site, the adventure stations offer exciting information about Heinrich von Ofterdingen, Gustav Schwab and Hans Vaihinger. The Klett chocolate factory in Nehren with its attached factory outlet is definitely a special highlight for all chocolate lovers, big and small.

Author’s recommendation

Above Nehren, east of the Zoller-Alb-Bahn on the Firstberg, there is a large playground and rest area with barbecue facilities and a refuge. Exact position in the outdooractive.
