This region is little frequented by hikers. Yet this walking trail is a good alternative on hot summer days and also a good tip for people who love and look for peace and undisturbed places. Good physical condition is required as the uphill climbing is at times rather steep.

Turn-by-turn directions

The starting place is at the Bruggerhof bus stop in Außermühlwald (outskirts of Mühlwald). At the bus stop cross the bridge to the Brugger farmhouse and you can soon turn right onto trail nr. 65 towards Brugger Alm and Wengsee (lake). Pass the abandoned Unteren (lower) Brugger Alm (1697 m) and the Oberen (upper) Brugger Alm (1816 m) and walk along trail nr. 65 taking you west to Wengalm (pasture) (1769 m) and continue on trail nr. 66 to the dreamy Wengsee (lake). What a view, the effort was worth it! After a short uphill climb on trail nr. 2 through a wooded ridge a large meadow, the Kaser Alm (1879 m), appears. From here you go on trail nr. 1 to the highest point of your tour, the Knappenjoch (2132m). This spot offers a marvelous view down to the many mountain farmhouses on the opposite sunny side of the valley. The descent on trail nr. 1 first goes through the woods and mountain pastures to Putzen Alm (1965 m) and Knapp Alm (1920 m) and then it descends steeply down to Mühlwald and takes you to the bus stop in the centre of the village.
