This hike will allow for an unforgetably beautiful borderline experience regardless whether you choose the activating or the balancing route. In the following description you will find the activating day hike starting in Riezlern:

Between Kanzelwand valley station and Almhof Rupp there is a trail up to Riezler Höhenweg. Walk a bit out of the valley and turn right at the water wading pool Schwand. Follow the steeper path up to Riezler Alp. Take a brake at the clearing and get some fresh spring water. From there on follow the ascent up to the Gundsattel and Riezler Alpsee. In direction out of the valley walk alongside the ridge (on the left there is Austria, on the right Germany) via Fellhorn and Schlappold to Söllereck. The ridge is not very exposed, but you should not be afraid of heights either. At Söllereck the Alpweg, the former, historic connection to Kleinwalsertal, starts. Alongside this way you will find five stations that will give you information about the topic of alpine farming. After you passed Mittelalp and Bergstüble the trails leads you back to Riezlern.

Turn-by-turn directions

between the valley station Kanzelwand and Almhof Rupp, the trail leads up to the Riezler Höhenweg. Only a little way out of the valley, at the Wassertretbecken on the Schwand, turn right into the steeper root path to the Riezler Alp. The clearing around the huts invites you to rest after the ascent and you can quench your thirst at the fountain with fresh spring water. From the Riezler Alp it goes with fewer climbs up to the Gundsattel and Riezler Alpsee. Out of the valley, along the ridge path (on the left is Austria, on the right Germany) via Fellhorn and Schlappold to Söllereck. The ridge is not too exposed, but you should be a bit afraid of heights. At Söllereck begins the Alpweg, the former, historic route to Kleinwalsertal. Along the Alpweg, steles provide information on alpine farming in the mountains at five stations. After the Mittelalp and the Bergstüble the way leads back to Riezlern.

The climb to the pulpit wall makes the tour balancing.
