This cycle tour takes us from the time-honoured residential town of Tübingen to the „Gäumetropole“ Herrenberg. Our constant companion is the idyllic Ammer, which we follow from the place where it flows into the Neckar to its source in Herrenberg in the southwest.

We start our tour in the Schleifmühlenstra;e at the Tübingen Westbahnhof. We take a look at Hohent-Bingen Castle (1), which towers imposingly over the cityscape, and leave the city in a westerly direction. Slightly uphill we continue über the rails and along the Neue Ammer along the northern flank of the wooded Spitzberg to Ammern. Here we pass the old Ammerhof church (2), an art-historical gem from the 18th century. We follow the path northwards and shortly after crossing the Mühlbach we reach the confluence of the Neue Ammer and Ammer. On a flattened stretch, the route now continues along the river through the fields and into Pfauml;ffingen. Soon we are back in the countryside and approaching Poltringen at a brisk pace. Our route leads through old rows of houses and past the former castle (3) before we leave the town. Now the route goes uphill in undulating climbs and in a wide arc über the scenic Galgenegert. In addition to our cycle route, there are also numerous hiking trails that open up the beautiful countryside. Our next stop is Reusten, which we only touch on the northern edge and immediately turn right to continue on the Römerstraße. This leads across beautiful meadows and fields to Altingen, where we turn left onto the Schönbruchstra;e and then past a hut (4) onto the cycle path along the Ammer. The river leads us under the motorway out of the built-up area and along the lower edge of Gültstein. We now cycle slightly uphill through the natural Ammertal valley, which is characterised by beautiful wet meadows and the quietly flowing river. We now follow the historical trail past the three preserved Ammer mills - once there were as many as seven mills on the upper reaches of the river. We soon leave the riverside path and drive on roads into the southern outskirts of Herrenberg. Before the Leiblesgrube, a short peak in the route profile awaits us, before the route then enters Herrenberg in a moderate climb. We follow the cycle path along the Ammer river, which we finally leave on Raistinger Strasse and ride along Walther-Knoll-Strasse to the station. The destination of our tour awaits us shortly behind a church (5), not far from the charming old town.

Hallo Roland, vielen Dank für deine Nachricht. Du kannst die Tour per GPX exportieren und anschließend als neue Tour hochladen. Im Bearbeitungsmodus lässt sich dann die Richtung der Tour mit einem Rechtsklick oder klick auf "Umkehren" ändern. Solltest du die Tour am PC vorbereiten, kannst du sie auch einfach kopieren ("Mehr" → "Tour kopieren") und anschließend wie oben beschrieben die Richtung ändern. Viele Grüße
