From hut to hut the tour takes you around and across the highest peaks in Kleinwalsertal. Each section has unique scenic highlights and is a mountain experience per se: the majestic peaks of the Allgäu Alps are right ahead of you when you hike between Kanzelwand and Mindelheimer hut. The highest peak of the Kleinwalsertal valley, Großer Widderstein, is close by at the highland trail between Gemsteltal and Bärgunttal. After that, the shaded Duratal give some great variety to the route, as well as the crossing of wide alpine meadows until you reach the barren Gottesacker plateau – for many, this is together with the Hoher Ifen the highlight of the last stage.

Getting thereMost 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 directly at the starting point.
