If you like water you will love this tour to the Breitachklamm Gorge! An easy hike on varied hiking trails from Riezlern along the small river Breitach – occasions for resting and picnicking included.

All around us water is running down the rocks, gurgles in tiny rivers across the hiking trail into the Breitach. It seems as if one could watch the Breitach unify with its many small and larger side creeks in order to plummet through the gorge some meters further down. Occasionally you can walk down from the trail to the river's gravel bed, take a sip of cool water, build small cairns out of the pebble stones or stretch your feet into the clear water. Highly recommended: a visit to the gorge "Breitachklamm". Be a testimony of how the once calm water plummets down untamedly between narrow cliffs. 

Author’s recommendation

Bring a picnic and have a seat a one of the (gravel)benches by the riverside!

Turn-by-turn directions

Diagonally across the casino turn into Leo-Müller-Straße. Follow the Fellhornweg (turn left) and the signs to Breitach (Waldhaus). Behind the small horse farm turn on a small path that takes you down to the gorge. After the bridge keep to the right and continue along the river Breitach. Pass by the Waldhaus. After approx. 15 minutes you reach a bridge marking the boarder crossing and walk on until the entrance of the Breitachklamm Gorge. After the stairs you reach the bridge where you can follow the sign to the Gorge with point of arrival Tiefenbach. Otherwise you walk up a steep gravel trail to the Walserschanze and take the bus back to the starting point.  

Public transport

Public transport friendly

Leave the car where it is!

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.
Arrival by train, car, foot or bike
