This short tour especially for children starts in Unterjesingen and leads over the grain fields to Wurmlingen and back via Tübingen. It is very flat and therefore not particularly strenuous.

The Vesper tour for children consists of two individual tours that can also be taken as a large tour. A shortened and flat variant leads through the Ammertal from Unterjesingen to Wurmlingen to the Schwärzlocher Hof and a slightly more demanding one, through the Schönbuch Nature Park, the Goldersbachtal, Hohenentringen Castle and via Hagelloch and Waldhausen back to Bebenhausen. On the way, cyclists big and small learn everything about the topic of "TüKorn", a project in which farmers, millers and bakers have come together to bake bread and all kinds of delicacies from local spelled.

Author’s recommendation

If you have the breath, you can make a short detour up to the Wurmlinger Chapel. When visibility is good, this is rewarded with an excellent view of the entire Neckar and Ammer valleys.

Eine wunderschöne Tour, die wir heute mit unseren unerfahrenen Radtour-Kindern (7 und 9) gemacht haben. Wir haben reine Fahrzeit 90 Minuten mit ihnen gebraucht und inkl. der Pause am Bach und am Schwärzlocherhof waren es ca. 2 Stunden 15 Minuten. Die Steigungen hielten sich in Grenzen und waren auch für die Kleine gut machbar. Vielen Dank für den schönen Tipp!
