After a few meters we are in the midst of nature: The sound of Breitach in our ears and with an eye on the Schafalpköpfe at the end of the valley we enter the Wildental. Once we have the first climbs behind us, we are completely surrounded by pastures and flower-filled meadows. We walk towards the Innere Wiesalpe before soaking up the splendid view: time for a cheese plate or apple pie on the terrace! Afterwards, a bubbling brook accompanies us to Fluchtalpe (Escape Alp). If you  continue following the stream, you can watch the waterfall plunging from the rock at the end of the valley up close. We also recommend a stop at the Fluchtalpe with its idyllic terrace. Occasionally, a young calf dares come closer and eyes the guests with curiosity. The return is entertaining: We marvel at the panorama reaching from the Walmendingerhorn to parts of Mittelberg and the Gottesackerplateau. After the Untere Wiesalpe we are offered deep looks into the ravine through which the river is raging now. In the last section, we can catch glimpses down to Baad and the posterior valley, before we go up again to the center of Mittelberg. There is lots of opportunity to rest : Thanks to many shaded and sunny wooden benches.

Author’s recommendation

Make a detour to the waterfall – a natural spectacle, especially in the thawing period!

Turn-by-turn directions

At the bus stop Alpenrose in Mittelberg we follow the main road towards Hirschegg to the turn in Höflerweg at the drug store. From here, we continue along the asphalt road quickly down to the creek and into nature. We cross the Breitach on a covered wooden bridge. Below the ski lift, we turn right. Alternatively, you can start off the hike here at Höfle . When the paved road ends, keep to the left on the gravel road. Before the wooden barrier now a beautiful path leads uphill. Soon the view opens before us into the valley. We pass a farm while the gravel road is moderately rising towards the Innere Wiesalpe (Obere Wiesalpe). We follow the path straight to the Fluchtalpe. The trail winds now gently along the stream and brings us closer to the waterfall at the end of the valley. Even from a distance you can see the Fluchtalpe, which is located slightly above the path. On the same path we return to the Obere Wiesalpe. Here we turn left and pass by the Untere Wiesalpe. We follow the gravel road downhill, crossing the parking lot of the Alpengasthof Bergheim and follow the Schwendlestraße until the bridge for about 10 minutes. Just past the bridge, turn right onto the Breitachweg. At the first opportunity we keep left and walk through a small forest up towards the center. We cross the main road and turn left to the center. Our tour ends at the church.

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.


A parking area (fee required) is located at the Walmendingerhorn lift, approx. 5 min. from the starting point.

04.07.2015 Nette einfache Tour. Der Aufstieg zum Wasserfall lohnt sich, nimmt aber ca. 45 Minuten in Anspruch. Das letzte Teilstück über die Untere Wiesalpe zum Bergheim Moser und zurück nach Mittelberg führt über eine kleine geteerte Fahrstraße, also nicht sehr angenehm zu gehen. Ab dem Parkplatz bei Schwendle kann man alternativ den Bus zurück nach Mittelberg nehmen.
