Day tour for persistent hikers crossing a fascinating, though barren karst landscape.
The tour takes you through the wild, rugged karst landscape of the Gottesacker plateau – for anyone interested in geological and botanical phenomenons an absolute must! Another highlight are the nearby steep walls of the Ifen plateau during the ascent through the Ifenmulde. Provide sufficient drinks and food for this long tour – there are no refreshment stops or catering facilities after the Ifenhütte.
Check the webcam before you start the tour – in foggy weather you risk loosing the orientation on the Gottesacker plateau.

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.
