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.
The Saurucken playground and rest area in Goldersbachtal is the perfect place for a picnic with children. Barbecue areas are also available.
