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.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Swabian Jura, Germany

There are also at least 8 castles and their ruins to visit in this part of southern Germany and many historic churches and monasteries.

Weather in Swabian Jura, Germany

There is a typical continental climate to look forward to on your holidays in Swabian Jura. Also, as we have already mentioned, as much of this area is at least 400m above sea level, this can mean slightly lower temperatures.

House was amazing and all of our two family's enjoyed all amenities house had to offer. Very spacious living space for six. Coffee machine shear luxury first thing in morning. Lots of different routes to explore in forest. I enjoyed a different run everyday with stunning scenery. House was so warm even during the unexpected snow fall. Would love to stay here again and would highly recommend a stay for other families. Thank you so much for making us welcome

Todd even popped out to get a plug adapter for us! We could also come and go as we pleased which was great.  The apartment is in the basement of Todd and Claudia’s home but is very well lit and spacious with a dedicated kitchen and bathroom along with 3 very comfy beds. Linen was all fresh and plentiful so you can leave your towels at home.  The village itself is lovely and we particularly enjoyed popping of to the German bakery every morning for some hot fresh pretzels :). If I were to visit Stuttgart again I would stay again without doubt. Great experience!
