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

You will soon discover that there are a number of interesting towns to visit on your holidays in Swabian Jura. Heidenheim is one of the largest towns in this part of Germany and definitely well worth a day of your holiday to have a good look around.

Other towns to keep on your radar in this area include Tubingen and Blaubeuren. 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. This will be especially pertinent during the winter months when temperatures can actually struggle to get above freezing. Summers are very pleasant indeed, with temperatures regularly hitting the low-twenties degrees Celsius mark or more.

                                                                                                      Very clean first floor apartment in Hattenhoffen; a little village about 30km from Stuttgart Airport and 40km from Stuttgart Centre. The property is well maintained and modern with all conveniences and also includes a pool table and a stereo!! The only thing is that it could do with a second bathroom; tip: leave the person who takes longest to get ready at home! Also the pillows were a bit strange; either that or not what we're used to in the UK. They're more like quilts sewn together and they provide little/no support. If you're looking for a nightlife, this property won't be for you. Its in the middle of nowhere in a small village. We found a really nice pizzeria in Uhingen about a 10 minute drive away, and in the opposite direction in Bad Boll, there is a lovely typical German pub/hotel that serves authentic German cuisine. There is a supermarket nearby though if you drive around you can find better ones with more choice. However you should be able to find most things you need here. Overall a pleasant stay, a clean apartment, well maintained, quiet area, all amenities provided and a good place to stay. We would stay again!

We arrived late and although we were met with a warm welcome we did struggle to communicate with the owner as we do not speak German and he could not speak English. However, the apartment was clean, well maintained and I would highly recommend this to others travelling through Germany.
