Located at an elevation of 700 m above sea level Swabian Alb and Große Lauertal Valley form a so-called biosphere reserve. Due to its geological conditions and the many innovative projects in the fields of agriculture, forestry, tourism and environment Münsingen at the Swabian Alb is the first reserve of this kind in Baden-Württemberg.

In the 15th century shepherds came to operate the underused fields and acres of the Swabian Alb. Since that time flocks of sheep have shaped the characteristic appearance of the countryside.
