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.

Turn-by-turn directions

Ascent with the Kanzelwandbahn to almost 2,000m. From the top station you first head towards the Kanzelwand summit and the via ferrata. However, you follow the path straight on and finally turn right onto the ridge to the Austrian Hammerspitze (2,170 m), which can be reached in about an hour. After a break, follow the ridge which say "Nur für Geübte“ (“for experts only") to the second summit, the Hochgehrenspitze. After about half an hour through rugged terrain you reach the summit. From here the path becomes more demanding and requires easy climbing, but there are fixed ropes available. After some up and down, partially exposed and on brittle rock, you reach the German Hammerspitze and finally the key point: a 11 meter high wall. Here you have to rappel or climb down secured (III). The Fiderepasshütte is not far from here. Here you have several options: You can stay overnight on the DAV hut and do the Mindelheimer via ferrata the next day. Alternatively, and with good stamina, you can also take the via ferrata immediately. For a one day tour, you can descend directly via the Fluchtalpe Wildental and Höfle and take the bus back to Riezlern

Getting there

The 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.

Parking

A parking area (fee required) is located right at the starting point, at the bottom of the Kanzelwand lift.

Tolle Tour. Das Schild auf der Walser Hammerspitze "Unmarkierter Weg, nur für Geübte" ist Warnung und Reiz zugleich :-).
