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.

Turn-by-turn directions

With the Walmendingerhornbahn on the same mountain. A short descent below the panoramic lift, then right on the ridge. With easy ups and downs over the mostly spacious ridge of Muttelbergkopf and Ochsenhofer heads. At the Ochsenhofer Scharte the path crosses that leads from the Schwarzwassertal up into the gap. Continue straight ahead, then turn right over the short south ridge to the Grünhorn summit. Descend back the same south ridge, straight to the Starzeljoch and at the crossroads turn left towards Starzelalpe (not managed), steep descent in tight serpentines in the densely wooded Duratal, smooth walk to Baad.

Most 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.

Vielleicht hilft dies mal Eltern weiter, die vor den gleichen Rechercheschwierigkeiten standen, wie wir dieses Jahr: Was kann man mit einem Säugling in der Trage (Tuch/Manduca..) gehen, wenn man sonst eher anspruchsvollere Touren gegangen ist (Jubiläumsgrat o.ä.)? Wir sind diese Tour mit unserem 3 Monate alten Sohn gegangen und es war wirklich schön und machbar. Aber auch sehr lang, der Stop in der Schwarzwasserhütte kam sehr gelegen. Man entgeht auf dem Grat den Massen, die den unteren Höhenweg gehen. Tolle Tour!
