Turn-by-turn directions

At the church, the path leads into the Dürenboden and over the Breitach on the other side of the valley. Immediately after the bridge, the path splits - both lead to the Höhenweg Nebenwasser, which you now hike into the valley to turn off after a short distance on the mountain path to Kuhgehren. Now the ascent begins on a lonely path and in several sailing lessons up to the Inner Kuhgehrenalp. Over the Kuhgehrensattel you reach the Kuhgehrenspitze with its fantastic vision. Back at the saddle it goes, almost at a height, along the flank of the Kanzelwand to the mountain station.

Getting there

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.

Parking

A parking area (fee required) is located directly by the starting point.

Wow, was für eine Tour für uns ungeübte Wanderer. Wir hätten lieber von der Kanzelwand anfangen und nach unten laufen sollen. Ich, (49) konnte zum Schluss fast nicht mehr, auch wegen der Sonne und Hitze. Dafür war das Radler lecker auf der Kanzelwand. Aber Talfahrt 17,50 pro Person ist schon heftig.
