From the Vilotel it goes first uphill to 650 meters, to follow the course afterwards always nice and easy downhill through the Dossinger valley and the dam. A highlight is the Neresheim monastery, which used to decorate the 50 DM note. Only 5 kilometres to the Härtsfeldsee where you can have a nice swim or stop for a bite to eat. A short detour to the Stauferburg Katzenstein with a visit to the castle and a stop with delicious food in the castle courtyard is also worthwhile. A beautiful route along the Albschäferweg leads to Heidenheim and to the Itzelberger See with a small miniature golf course. On the way back you must also see the Brenzursprung in Königsbronn. The old hammer smithy has been extensively restored and is a popular location for cultural events and weddings. Worth seeing is also the baroque town hall.

The Wental is a popular excursion destination in the Swabian Alb. The tour starts in the Vilotel and goes from there to Königsbronn at the Brenzursprung. The tour continues along the Brenz to Heidenheim until the Brenzpark (former state garden show area). There follows an easy path on the bicycle path to Steinheim, which is located in a meteor crater basin. From there, a fantastic path leads uphill through the Wentalwaible with many small resting places. Before you enter the well-known Felsenmeer, it is worth stopping at the excursion restaurant in the Wental. Then the path leads through forests and meadows to a small ascent up to 700 metres to Tauchenweiler. Stop for a bite to eat there or continue the steep descent to Oberkochen.
