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.

Ich bin die Strecke Ende Mai gelaufen. Allerdings andersrum. In der Zeit befanden sich noch rund um die Widdersteinhütte viele Schneefelder, was, diesem Trail nochmal ein bisschen thrill gab. Alles im Allem, ein wirkliche beeindruckender Trail. Ich freue mich schon auf den Wettkampf im Sommer
