Moderately difficult alpine tour round the highest peak between Wildental and Gemsteltal
The tour is ideal for hikers with a soft spot for extended stops and refreshments. Whether in Wildental or Gemsteltal, or in the middle of the route at the Mindelheimer Hütte – there is a choice of idyllic alpine huts recommended for a rest. Between the romantic valleys the higher areas offer great views of the Allgäu Alps and the southern summit panorama of the Lechquellengebirge.
Early hikers can enjoy their coffee on the terrace of the Mindelheimer Hütte together with the remaining overnighters.
