Promising ridge hike from the Walmendingerhorn over the Starzeljoch for sure-footed.
The popular ski tour mountain Grünhorn is an insider tip in summer. The Grünhorn does not bear its name in vain: the short ascent to the grass mountain over the south ridge is steep, but worth it - from 2039 m height you can see over into the Bregenzerwald and the Bodensee region. With good visibility, the big Swiss peaks are getting closer.
