Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Swabian Jura, Germany, Your Home Away From Home

The Swabian Jura is actually the name given to the Swabian Alps, in the south of the country of Germany, leading up to the Black Forest. The highest mountain within this range reaches 1,015m and much of this part of Germany is on a plateau which is over 400m above sea level. Given the elevations above sea level here, this produces a micro-climate which makes it a little snowier than other parts of the country. Holidays in Swabian Jura are extremely popular due to the fact that this is such a beautiful part of Germany, surrounded by many interesting and historic towns to visit and plenty of different activities for you to indulge in.

Things to Do on Holiday in Swabian Jura, Germany

There is one activity that is available to enjoy on your holidays in Swabian Jura that can only be found in a few select locations across the world: fossil hunting. In fact, it is not unusual for people to find fossils on their own land here that can date as far back as the Jurassic Period (we’re talking around 180 million years of age!). There is even a museum devoted to this Palaeontological pastime: Urwelt Museum Hauff. Other activities to enjoy in Swabian Jura include swimming, canoeing and kayaking, nature walking, abseiling, spelunking, golf, mountain biking and fishing.

Weather in Swabian Jura, Germany

A spacious, comfortable and well equipped property near to the shops and station. Ulm is less than 10 minutes away by train- very convenient. Maria and Hans were very friendly and helpful.

Everything was excellent!

5 of 5
We spent four nights in the house as part of our longer European holiday. We were warmly welcomed by the owners, who made sure that we received all the necessary information about the house and the area. A very nice surprise was also the welcome gift, with regional wine and yummy fruits. We loved the house as it provided us with all the amenities as well as the space for our family (we like to have a fair amount of space!) and, very importantly, games that kept our girls entertained when we were inside. The local bakery with fresh products, its welcoming owners as well as the warm local people, who made every effort to communicate to us either by signs or language (we do not speak German!), were all heartwarming for us and made the experience highly enjoyable. Last but not least, the beautiful surroundings with plenty of experiences on offer, made it a perfect stay for all the family - we fell in love with the place, the people and the area. Thank you!
