Where is the hobbit of Haspelwald forest hiding? It is known that it lives in the forest that gave him its name, situated below the Walmendingerhorn. But the puzzle has to be solved by everyone. At five quiz stations on the way, hints are given. Those who solve the puzzle correctly at the end point at the Bühlalpe know the answer and even get a little surprise

Author’s recommendation

The path is not suitable for buggies, so we recommend to switch to child carriers.

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 close to the starting point.
