Schönbuch Nature Park–always a good destination for a short Sunday afternoon trip out of the city

Schönbuch Nature Park–always a good destination for a short Sunday afternoon trip out of the city

Hi guys! Sometimes, I do nothing but working on my to-do-list on weekends. On the one hand, I feel good afterwards because the house is clean, all groceries for the week are in the fridge, all bills paid and the latest blog post finished. But on the other hand, I want to rewind on weekends. I want to go out, stretch my legs, get some fresh air and a fresh head. When there is not much time left for this on a Sunday afternoon but I feel the urge of going out into nature, I drive to Schönbuch Nature Park. It’s only half an hour away from Stuttgart by car. With more time at hand, it is a great destination for longer hikes, for example from Bebenhausen to a royal hunting cabin or from Waldenbuch to Lake Schönbuch. But with only one or two hours, it is nice to just stroll around and try new paths. And that’s exactly what Moritz and I did last weekend.

Hi guys! Moritz and I are determined to make the most of this beautiful, sunny autumn, hiking-wise. We like the area called Schönbuch, a national park south of Stuttgart, a lot. So we checked my dad’s guide book “Ausflugsziel Schönbuch” and decided to hike from Waldenbuch to the hidden Schönbuchsee (Lake Schönbuch).

Zavelstein Castle at the beginning of the black forest

Hi guys! Isn’t this weather we’re having lately, lovely? It makes you wanna step outside and enjoy the nature. And I know just the right place to do so! Moritz and I wanted to do a nice hike and looked through the guide book “Burgenziele im Ländle” (of course written by – you might guess it by now – my dad Dieter Buck Smiley) and came across an easy 10 kilometer hike close to Calw. Starting at Wimberg, it leads you through Rötelbachtal and passes the remains of Zavelstein Castle. We packed our bags and off we went.
