Along the scenic panorama path via Söllereck to Oberstdorf. Wonderful views over Allgäu and Kleinwalsertal are guaranteed. Head down to Oberstdorf and from there along the Breitach river back to Kleinwalsertal. 

Author’s recommendation

You can do the tour the other way round. That way you can use Söllereckbahn for the steepst ascent. The Söllereckbahn transports bikes only from 9 - 10 am and 3.30 - 5 pm (€ 5,-)

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.

Tolle Tour. Bin in Oberstdorf gestartet. Zu Beginn zähe Anstiege auf Asphalt. Eine Einkehr als Belohnung bei der Alpe Osterberg ist empfehlenswert. Ab Riezlern aufwärts über den Panoramaweg mit tollen Ausblicken zum leckerem Wurstsalat auf die Alpe Schrattenwang, dann sehr steil bergab (gute Bremsen notwendig!) zurück nach Oberstdorf. Gute Kondition notwendig.
