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

Weather in Swabian Jura, Germany

Lovely stay in Hattenhoffen, close to Stuttgart for a short break.

4 of 5
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!
