Enjoy nature and unique limestone hill formations on this 10 km hiking route starting in Beuron. The Upper Danube Nature Park area in southern Germany is an often-overlooked area. It’s so close situated between the much more famous Black Forest and Lake Constance, it’s a shame the Upper Danube Nature Park isn’t more popular. We took this as a reason enough to spend a half-day hiking trip there. On the drive to Beuron, we already noticed we were passing by various cities, which feel like they are always getting smaller and more remote. Ideal for a hiking adventure in nature. As we decided on this short ten-kilometer walk, instead of the online often suggested 15+ km routes, we only spent the afternoon/early evening in Beuron. A glorious decision, as we have only passed less than 10 other souls on this walk. Starting hikes against the typical daytime can sometimes be super rewarding!
