Through blackberry and bilberry bushes, you first get to the Untere Lüchlealp - one of the most picturesque huts in the valley - then the Innere Stierhofalpe. As an awarded GenussHütte (gourmet cabin) it offers exclusively regional products. The amazing view of the Walser mountain panorama is a free extra!

Author’s recommendation

Make a stop at the GenussHütte (gourmet cabin) Innere Stierhof – all products stem from the family's farm in the valley.

Destination

Baad

Turn-by-turn directions

From the main road in Baad follow the Starzelweg to the left; after a few hundred meters, turn right onto the trail. In short peaks, you hike on a root path up to the Untere Lüchlealp. At the fork, keep to the left, direction Stierhofalpe. Soon the forest thins out and you walk with a moderate rise in open terrain to the Innere Stierhofalpe. Continue to Starzelalp, then down into the Duratal. Small brooks make the way partly wet and slippery. At the Duraalpe, a gravel road continues to the familiar fork in the road and back to Baad.

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.
