After driveway with the Söllereckbahn begins the wonderfully landscaped lookout way to Riezlern.Nach a few minutes walk to reach the Schrattenwangalpe the highest point and shortly thereafter the state border. On the way you have a wonderful view of the imposing summit of the High Ifen (2,230 m) and the Gottesacker Plateau. An excellent refreshment stop is the GenussHütte Mittelalp. After crossing the Westeggtobel you reach with beautiful views of the valley the village Riezlern. Recommended in the afternoon with pleasant sunshine. Ascent with guest card reduced, bus in German territory (from Walserschanz) fee.

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 (fee required) is located directly by the starting point.

Sehr schöner, völlig unschwerer Panoramaweg, den man früh laufen sollte, da er sonst recht überfüllt ist. Immer wieder tolle Blicke. Und schließlich mit dem Bus zurück - sehr empfehlenswert, wenn es mal gemütlich zugehen soll.

Bin die Tour von Riezlern zum Söllereck gelaufen (also umgekehrt), würde aber empfehlen, die Tour wie beschrieben zu laufen. Das Panorama in Richtung Ifen ist nämlich deutlich schöner. Die Wege sind breit, gut befestigt bis geteert und auch mit Kinderwagen "befahrbar" bzw. für Menschen geeignet, die nicht so gut zu Fuß sind. Unterwegs gibt es einige Einkehrmöglichkeiten.

Schöne, einfache Wanderroute mit herrlichem Panoramablick. Leider hat man in der Gondel nicht genügend Privatsphäre, daher kam es zu unangenehmen Blickkontakt in einer intimen Situation mit einem fremden Mann in einer entgegenkommenden Gondel. Getönte Scheiben wären von Vorteil.
