This spring comes in the most amazing turquoise color in an idyllic village setting. A walk around the spring pool is a must for different view angles of the lovely pool and the water mill next to it. In addition, what not to miss is...More

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
