This town is worth a visit in summer. A wonderful walk around the old town and the blautopf. Once winter sets in, most restaurants are closed. The monastery and other attractions are also closed until March.

We were lucky to come when there was a diver in the water. The intense turquoise color is caused by the small particles of limestone in the water refracting the light. Definitely see the free movie in the town museum as the man who discovered...More

River runs out of limestone mountain, walking trails, nice cafe for drink or light lunch. Can get jammed on weekends and parking is limited. Beautiful water and setting!

A small but fascinating output of the natural aquifer. The surrounding area filters the rain water through the hills and out of the Blautopf. A small quaint village surrounding the "pond" with beautiful buildings and the imposing monastery. Small groups of persons walk around the...More

From the station to Blautopf it is about 1.5 km. There are a few irregular bus connections (lines 365 and 369) with a 15 minute drive. But it is much nicer to take a leisurely walk through the old town from Blaubeuren to the... More
