The tour begins at the Ammertalbahn train station in Pfäffingen. From there it follows the Ammer upriver to Reusten, and behind the village leads off to the left on a hill into the open field. After a few minutes you reach the remains of an aircraft hangar - today a memorial with large steles. At the following fork, it is worth taking a detour to the Bergcafè Reusten, which is located above the name-giving place. Shortly before the tour reaches the former runway of the military airfield, a small dirt road branches off to the right. At the end of the path there is an information board that provides information about the mass grave located there. From the official memorial of the satellite camp, the tour initially leads slightly downhill, then sharply right to Bondorf. Past the Bondorf train station (connection to the Gäubahn) and through an underpass, the route reaches Baisingen via woods and meadows. The Jewish cemetery on the outskirts and the former synagogue there are a reminder of the Jewish community.
Part 2: Baisingen - Pfäffingen
Via Ergenzingen the route leads to the Liebfrauenhöhe and from there through the wooded Rommelstal valley steadily downhill to Obernau on the Neckar. Along the Neckar Valley Cycle Path, it goes downriver to Rottenburg. The Morizplatz is located south of the Neckar; Via the Sebastian-Blau-Brücke you reach the north side to Metzel and Eugen-Bolz-Platz. From here the tour runs uphill to the north and reaches Oberndorf via Wendelsheim. Above the village is the forest chapel "to the Immaculate Heart of Mary", which members of the community built between 1946 and 1949 after the end of the war. The last part back into the Ammertal leads down moderately and ends at the starting point of the tour, at Pfäffingen train station.
