NEW! STUTTGART „STAEFFELESTOUR“ *
*„Staeffele“ is the local term for the stairways built in the early 19th century in order to facilitate the cultivation of the Stuttgart vineyards. There are over 400 of them, with a total length of 20 km. Some of them are physically challenging, but they offer splendid panoramas of the city and the Neckar river valley.
In 2017 we will offer not only the regular hiking routes, but also a so-called “Staeffelestour” in the heart of Stuttgart. Start will be between 0630 and 0730hrs. In case there are not enough participants for the “Staeffelestour” those registering for it will automatically be listed as participants of the 40km route.
Participants are free to choose between distances of 10, 20, 30 and 40 kms, depending on their preferences and their physical shape. In addition, there will be the “Stuttgart Staeffelestour” this year. Pertinent signs can be found along the routes and can be found via gps (see route). The "Staeffelestour" can be found via gps only. At 4 pm the routes will be closed.
