Auenhütte, Ifen Lift station

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Auenhütte at the valley station of the Ifenbahn, take a mountain bike towards Melköde. The view of the beautifully situated Herzsee will soon open up. The further route leads us through the wild and romantic nature reserve Rüche. On both sides of the path there are huge boulders in a tangled mess - witnesses of a huge rock fall that went down centuries ago. The highest point of the tour is reached at the shrine on the left-hand side and we continue on the path on the right of the Melköde to Alpe Melköde, whose ancient settlement was inhabited all year round according to documents in 1612. The Alpe was recognized as a culinary hut by the GenussRegion Österreich. The way back is to Herzsee. There we take the right path and come back to the starting point.

Public transport

It's a lot more fun with your bike.

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

There is a paid parking area at Ifen. ATTENTION: restricted places.
