Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts in Riezlern opposite the Catholic Church. After a few minutes on the main road into the valley, turn left at the Ferienhof Stephanie towards Letzte / Zwerwald. Here you have a free view of the impressive Ifen. After about 20 minutes you reach the apartments Hilbrand. Here, the trail branches off to the left again and leads relatively steeply upwards for some 20 minutes. But the effort is worth it, as you can enjoy a wonderful panorama from the high trail: Hirschegg with the Ifen and Mittelberg with the Bärenkopf and Widderstein. After passing the short but steep ravine, the Panorama is again relatively flat until Höfle. On the way you can rest at the "Schwabenhütte", afterwards you soon reach the beautiful panoramic terrace of the "Gasthof Alpenblick". After a refreshment you continue on the road and turn left at the Haus Bergidyll to the right onto the Höflerweg until you reach the beautiful Höflerbrücke that was rebuilt after the 2005 flood. From here, it is a 10 minutes hike uphill back to Mittelberg / Alpenrose. If you prefer a less steep trail, you can turn to the left and walkd bach to Bödmen along the Breitach for about 20 minutes.
