Welcome to Ferien- und Erlebnisdorf Sonnenmatte


The Swabian Jura is one of the most beautiful low mountain ranges in Europe. Situated south of Stuttgart, 200km long, 60 km wide and with mountains reaching up to 1000m it arose from the sea millions of years ago. Many fossils that can be found here still testify that fact.
