Bad Urach – it’s not only about architecture
Probably this post would better take place during summer months, but Bad Urach is not going to disappear next year, is it? 😉 Besides, what I am going to write about can be visited at any time of the year.
Bad Urach is a small town
Are you ready? Let’s go then!
4 reasons to visit Bad Urach
Bad Urach is a sweet town which is about 35 minutes by train from Reutlingen, where I currently live, surrounded by gorgeous Swabian Alps (or Schwäbische Albs in German). Even though it is quite small, its main square is utterly adorable and strike with its half-timbered houses and quiet atmosphere.
So here is the reason number one: the old town and the main square of Bad Urach.
Personally, I would not say that it is something outstanding and unforgettable, but with time I developed fondness to this cute town. Just wanted to share with you something personal ❤
The reason number two: hiking, riding, biking
If you are keen on hiking and nature, Bad Urach’s area is perfect for you. There are short and long wonder paths, waterfalls, lakes and so on. Pick up what you want! 🙂
Besides, you can try there mounting biking or just cycling. There are roads in Schwäbische Albs that pass wonderful for biking and gentle hills which are not so difficult to ride up and down 🙂
And it is not all! There are also stables, where you can rent a horse (they are so gorgeous and beautiful there) and go straight into the mountains! Isn’t that thrilling?!
The reason number three: castle ruins.
There is even a castle in Bad Urach! Even though it is already in decay, I mean, only ruins are left. Nevertheless, it is not a pile of bricks and stones, and there is something to see! And I must say, it is an ideal destination if you decided to hike in Schwäbische Albs 🙂
And the reason number four: spa and bathing.
Don’t you think I would leave that topic out! The name of Bad Urach speaks for itself – a German word “das Bad” means “a bath.” Try healing mineral waters of Bad Urach and relax 😉
How to get there?
I assume that must be an important question!
Mostly you can get there by train. There is a direct train from Reutlingen that goes every hour. If you are going to Bad Urach from Stuttgart, there are two news: bad and good one. I will begin with the bad one: there are no direct trains to Bad Urach. The good news: there are trains to Bad Urach with only one change! It is not troublesome, just get informed in a Deutsch Bahn App.
You can read about the app here, and you can follow the link there to download the app. Personally, I use this app all the time because it is not always convenient to use the web version.
Which stop do I need?
Here everything is simple.
Do you want to hike, ride horses or cycle? Then you need a station Bad Urach Wasserfall.
If you want to go to the town itself, you will need a station Bad Urach (there is a station between Bad Urach Wasserfall and Bad Urach).
Thank you very much for your time!
See you 😉
