StuVe May Hike

on May 01

General information

The mountain is calling! And the beer too, of course.


On May 1, 2024 , we will lace up our hiking boots and set off on an epic hike into May. As service-oriented organizers, we naturally offer several routes for every level of fitness.

On the 1st route, mountain guide Michi will take you from Ulm (Kuhberg) to Blaubeuren in the morning. At approx. 15 km, the route is recommended for experienced hikers. For those with a thirst for beer, master brewer Basti offers the more relaxed 2nd route in the afternoon. This leads 5 km through the countryside around Blaubeuren.

Free drinks from beer to Spezi are available at the starting points while stocks last.

Here we leave the Südrand-Weg and take the last three kilometers to Blaubeuren.

Course of the route

From 13:00, drinks and happy hikers will be ready for socializing at Blaubeuren station. We then set off at around 14:00. The leisurely route first leads through the tranquil town center of Blaubeuren, which invites you to head for a blonde half. After a short walk, we circle the Blautopf. Its ice-blue spring water pairs perfectly with a cool hand beer, which spurs us on for the following ascent.


A few vigorous steps through the idyllic Albwald forest later, we find ourselves high above the Blautal valley, from where we now make our way leisurely through the forest. The tart notes of oak and beech are reminiscent of fresh beer, which is an ideal addition to this part of the route. Finally, we reach the garlic rock. From there, there is a magnificent view over Blaubeuren, the Blautal valley and the surrounding meadows.

After enjoying a hop-based summit drink together, we continue along the ridge to Rusen Castle. This medieval ruin, carved into the rock, once again offers a fantastic view and offers historic seating that invites you to take a break, including a cereal lemonade for adults. Finally, we venture a steep descent down to the banks of the Blau, where we round off the strenuous day of hiking in a convivial atmosphere with a few hop torpedoes from around 16:30.
