Public transport

Leave the car where it is!

The Walserbus is a convenient way to reach your starting point. Line 1 takes you to the village Riezlern. For this tour you need to get off at the bus stop "Gemeindeamt".

>>> Timetable Walserbus

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 directly at the starting point. For the return you can take the Walserbus at the end point.
