Destination

Mittelberg

Turn-by-turn directions

To warm up, you head slightly uphill from the Bödmer level, along the towering mountains. You cross the Breitach river for the first time, and then it accompanies you throughout the rest of your journey. Travel along the partly frozen stream and into the snowy Gemsteltal valley. The old Walserhaus invites you to take a rest, but the trail leads gently further along the Breitach into the mountain village of Baad. Up to here, you've done a few metres in altitude, your heart is beating in the background, your breathing remains steady and in harmony with your heart. Baad offers plenty of rest opportunities, and you can feel the closeness, but also the security, of the mountains. A small loop leads continually upward to the turning point. The subsequent descent gives you the feeling of freedom. The valley opens up and gives you new power and energy.

Getting there

Most routes from Germany lead to Ulm before carrying on along the A7. Take the Allgäu junction over a section of the A980 to the Waltenhofen junction, then take the 4- lane B19 via Sonthofen and Oberstdorf to Kleinwalsertal. From Austria (Vorarlberg) and Switzerland you reach the Kleinwalsertal via the Bregenzerwald (Hittisau) – Riedbergpass – Fischen – Oberstdorf. From Tyrol the fastest route is over the A7 to Kempten carrying on along the B19 direction Oberstdorf. A motorway vignette is not required to reach the valley.

Parking

A parking area (don't forget to pay!) is located directly by the starting point.
