Trip to the fish pond
This time I recommend a hike in the Backnang Region, exactly Gronau/Prevorst. There are beautiful hike trails in the forest, trout ponds with sale of fresh and smoked fish and the possibility for a nice rest while having a drink and regional specialities. There is a map of a hike in the Region with lots of pictures, too.
You can park your car on the lot at the "untere Ölmühle" - which means "lower oil mill", we recommend to leave it there, if you can not do otherwise you can go up by car as well to the fish breeding Ponds Fischzucht Ulrich (ask for Lachsforelle, Regenbogenforelle, Saibling/ salmon trout, rainbow trout, char) or the upper oil mill Obere Ölmühle-
Here you will find the hike route.
It takes about 40 minutes by car from Stuttgart, taking the highway in direction of Heilbronn. In fine weather, it is really worth the side-trip and you can take yourself along some yummy fish from the Bottwar valley.
Have a good trip!
