High alpine ridge hike through jagged rocks – three peaks in one day. From the Kanzelwand lift via the Hammerspitzen and Hochgehrenspitze to the Fiderepasshütte and descent to the valley.
During this tour you climb three peaks: The Walser Hammerspitze, the Hochgehrenspitze and the Oberstdorfer Hammerspitze. Over a jagged, craggy ridge, right at the Austrian-German border, the trail leads you from Kanzelwand lift to the Fiderepasshütte. The first longer ascent may therefore be overcome quite easily by the lift (chargeable). The partially exposed path over the ridge is however only recommended for very sure-footed hikers free from giddiness.

Getting thereThe Kleinwalsertal valley is located in the north-east of the Austrian state of Vorarlberg and can only be reached by road via Oberstdorf (Germany/Bayern). The main part of Austria can only be reached directly by foot or by taking a detour via Allgäu. You do not need an autobahn badge to drive into the valley. Please ensure that you have suitable tyres in winter. In Austria, winter tyres (min. 4mm, M S) are obligatory on snow-covered roads from 1 November to 15 April.
ParkingA parking area (fee required) is located right at the starting point, at the bottom of the Kanzelwand lift.
