Geisingen lies north of the Bodensee, between Donaueschingen and Tuttlingen. Easy to reach over the A 81, exit Geisingen. Then follow the B 311 in the direction of Tuttlingen, and immediately to the right in the direction of Geisingen. Now take the first graded road to the right. After a while you reach a parking spot at the top of the hill.
