Nature & greenery

The area around Metzingen has no shortage of delightful natural scenery. The Swabian Alb and Schönbuch nature reserve have everything that nature lovers could wish for. Sonnenbühl is one of the most beautiful destinations in the heart of the Swabian Alb with its amazing scenery and romantic castles and churches. Schönbuch nature reserve is a fantastic place to visit with its dense, ancient forests and remarkable tranquillity.
Sonnenbühl is one of the most beautiful and most popular destinations in Baden-Württemberg. With numerous footpaths and cycle trails, a summer toboggan run and good winter sports facilities, it has everything to make your stay an enjoyable one. Sonnenbühl's dripstone caves are a particularly interesting attraction for nature enthusiasts.
Swabian Alb
The Swabian Alb - a striking highland region that rose up out of the Jurassic sea millions of years ago, features a combination of bizarre rock formations and gentle rolling slopes, and runs right across Baden-Württemberg. The landscape is characterised by majestic castles and romantic churches looking out far across the plateaux. The Swabian Alb consists of broad plains, light deciduous forests and sparse juniper scrubs as well as mysterious caves with fantastic underground systems and mountains from the top of which you can enjoy views of the Black Forest and even the Alps on a clear day.
Schönbuch Nature Reserve
Schönbuch nature reserve, a large area of woodland to the west of Metzingen, is an ideal destination for nature enthusiasts or anyone looking for a relaxing break. There are miles and miles of footpaths and cycle trails on which visitors can explore the fascinating flora and fauna. This large secluded forest is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, while the woodland trails and historical monuments take visitors on a cultural journey of discovery. The game enclosure is a firm favourite with children and families.
