The highland scenery of the Upper Danube Nature Park is characterised by its rugged limestone cliffs dating back to the Jurassic period, mixed woodland and the vast Alb plateau.

The Upper Danube Nature Park covers an area of around 1,500 square kilometers along the Danube breakthrough valley. The Danube seepage between Immendingen, Tuttlingen and Fridingen is a unique natural phenomenon: On up to 150 days a year, the riverbed of the Danube lies dry as the water seeks an underground path through the rugged limestone of the Swabian Alb towards the Aachtopf. With its sometimes unique habitats, the nature park is home to a variety of rare plant and animal species. Visitors can immerse themselves in this natural world by hiking, cycling, climbing and canoeing.
