Leaving the cable car behind you can enjoy sights on the incomparable mountain panorama of the Kleinwalsertal – and hike with little effort. As you descend into the Schwarzwassertal you can admire the Ifenplateau and will probably be surprised by the relatively lush vegetation. Several alps invite you to stop while you walk down to the valley.

Author’s recommendation

Take down the panoramic elevator at the mountain station of the Walmendingehorn cable car and start your tour from here.

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.

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

Haben eine Rundtour in zwei Tagen daraus gemacht. Von Auenhütte zur Schwarzwasserhütte. Am zweiten Tag weiter zum Walmendinger Horn und dann weiter über die Walmendingenalpe zur Auenhütte zurück.
