It starts in Riezlern at the Kanzelwandbahn. First, the spa park is crossed before crossing the Breitach over a bridge and a short steep climb to Eggstraße is climbed (who will save this increase can also go on the Breitach bridge and Schwarzwassertalstraße). Follow the Eggstraße for a short time and then turn left into the Kesselschwandweg. Passing by the Schneebar-Panoramahütte , the route continues with a magnificent view of the Elfer, Zwölfer, Widderstein and Ifen along the Egg trail to the Au. From the Ferienhof Hammer it goes on the Wäldelestraße slightly but steadily rising to the Württemberg House. Turn left here and follow the winter hiking trail past Bruder Klaus Kapelle to Oberwäldele and up to Auenhütte.

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.
