Through mountain meadows from one alpine pasture to the other…

This tour along the sunny side of the Mühlwalder valley is ideal in early summer and in autumn; in the summer it can get very hot. The fascinating thing about this walk is to stroll across alpine meadows, with wonderful views of the mountains surrounding Mühlwald, of the Pfunderer crest and over the valley. It is ideal for a hiking tour without using your car as you can use the public bus transport instead.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Wassermannbrücke bus stop in Mühlwald we take a short walk downstream heading towards the centre of the village. We take the road to Großgasteigerhof and we proceed on path n. 25 to the Steinerhof farm at Gornerberg (1,603 m). From there we continue to the Gorner Alm (1,993 m). We walk along path nr. 25 which slightly goes up and down to Mairhofer Alm (1,992 m), Brunnbergalm (2,020 m), Möslechnalm (1,965 m) and Weizgruber Alm (2,032 m). At this point, there are two possible ways for descending: either on path 28b, passing by the Lärchegger, Oberbacher, Weizgruber and Haselgruber farms back to the village centre of Mühlwald or following path n. 28a via the Rederlechner, Holzer and Ebner farms to the Moarhöfe farms in Außermühlwald (bus stop). For the first route, you walk mainly on the road whereas the second road is on steeper paths. Shortcuts down to the valley are possible near the Brunnbergalm (on the forest road n. 25b back to the village) and near the Möslechnalm (path 28 to the bus stop at the Moarhöfe).
