An excellent location! And sunny. The landscape of Sonnenalb is ideal for walking, hiking or cycling. Excursions? The municipality of Sonnenbühl offers a variety of attractions. Stroll through and shop in the towns of Reutlingen and Tübingen - you can drive there in half an hour. Nearby, the adventure park and the summer bob run beckon. Or maybe you fancy a trip to the famous castle of Scholes Lichtenstein?
