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. 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.

The apartment is very smart and immaculate with everything you need away from home. Located in a quiet and beautiful forest area. Pictuesque Sigmaringen is within 5k and is abundant with history and culture. Easy access to the outstanding Danube river valley for walks, kayaking and hiring of bicycles. Conveniently located as a base to explore lake Constance/Bodensee and numerous towns within Bayer and the Black Forest region. We also liked the locally brewed pils Loller Hoff. Am sure we will return again as our stay was far too short.
