Löwenpfade. Quite my territory.
The magical symbol of the Swabian Alb - the most historic low mountain range in Germany - is the unique lion man ("Löwenmensch"). The lion stands for power and dignity, pride and strength and can be found in the coat of arms of the Staufer district of Göppingen and the state of Baden-Württemberg. Numerous stories and legends are entwined around the "king of the animals" and make you want to discover the Swabian Alb with all its facets.
In the district of Göppingen you can follow the footsteps of the lion: Our certified quality Löwenpfad hiking trails take you through our beautiful Swabian landscapes with delightful panoramic views, fascinating nature, and mysterious places. With its sixteen loop trails with distances varying between 3 and 24 kilometres it provides routes for everyone: those interested in culture, those seeking peace and quiet, big an small explorers, families and nature lovers, active athletes and adventurers will find their personal paradise with us.
Pleasant culinary stops along the way, three certified spas and excellent transport connections make the unique landscape around the "Double Albtrauf", shaped by the river Fils, a unique experience.
