Allgäu pleasure peaks

Allgäu pleasure peaks

Hiking Collection by komoot

The Allgäu - varied unlike any other regions in the Alps. Next to the 2k+ summits catching your eye from far off regions, you'll find various easier mountains that can already be climbed early in the year or even all year round and don't require deep mountaineering experience. Many staffed alps welcome you to sit down and have a regional snack whilst enjoying the gorgeous panorama of the surrounding peaks. Grab your hiking gear, get out, and most importantly: enjoy!

Highlights

  1. Heidenkopf

    Mountaineering Highlight

    With the bizarre rock formations from Nagelfluh and its rock passage, the Heidenkopf is a small but unspeakably beautiful peak. The combination with the Siplinger head and the Siplinger needle is recommended.Refreshment stop: Alpe Scheidwang (delicious cheese salad!) UPDATE: The Schweidwang has not been managed since 2021!
    Parking: Hintere Aalpe or Alpe Scheidwang (both can only be reached via a mast road)

  2. Siplinger Kopf

    Mountaineering Highlight

    The mountain tour to Siplinger is recommended as a round trip from the rear Aualpe (toll road) on the Alpe Scheidwang and the Heidenkopf. Once you have reached the height of the ridge, there is a one-off tightrope walk in front of you. The descent over the Siplinger Nadel is a landscape delight for photographers.

    Tip: park at the rear Aualpe (toll road) and first on the paved road to Alpe Scheidwang. So the way back to the car leads without further uphill passage on the Siplinger needle into the valley.

  4. Rohnenspitze

    Mountaineering Highlight

    The easiest way to climb the Rohnenspitze is from Zöblen in the Tannheimer Tal. Just the "Pontental", a high valley between Ponten and Rohnenspitze with its Alpenrosen- and Latschenbewuchs recommended. About the refuge on Zierleseck the path then leads in the upper part a bit rocky to the summit.

    Refreshments can be found only in the valley.

  5. Einstein

    Mountaineering Highlight

    Fabulous all-round view! The Einstein stands alone so that opens up to all directions a beautiful panoramic view. The way leads best from Tannheim, branch mountain (fee parking directly on the main road) to the summit. Weather permitting, you'll have a sensational sunrise on the Einstein!

    Refreshments are only in the valley.

  6. Besler

    Mountaineering Highlight

    Great view of Oberstdorf in the Allgäu! The small climb (wire-insured) on the east side of the Beslers is an exciting alternative to the "normal way". In winter, the climb over the Schönberg Alpe, in summer, the parking below the Wannenkopfhütte Riedbergpass ideal.

    Refreshments: Schönberg Alpe

  7. Rindalphorn

    Hiking Highlight

    The ascent via the Autal to the Rindalphorn is steep, but you avoid the many hikers who climb the summit from the Hochgrat (mountain railway). You can also refresh yourself in the cool Aubach after returning to the parking lot at the Hintere Aualpe. The journey to the car park is subject to a charge from Gunzesried Saw.

  8. Grünten

    Hiking Highlight

    Many paths lead to the Grünten. The sunrise here and at the nearby Jägerdenkmal is unique due to the exposed location. For this we recommend the fast ascent from the Alpe Kammeregg (free parking space just below the Alpe, toll-free) over the Grünten hut to the monument. On the south-east side, the gourmet tour takes you from Berggasthof Alpenblick via the Schwandalpe (try cheese bread) to Grüntenhaus and on to the summit.

    Refreshments south side: Schwandalpe, Grüntenhaus, Berggasthof Alpenblick, Alpe Weiherle
    Refreshments north side: Grüntenhütte, Alpe Kammeregg

  9. Burgberger Hörnle

    Hiking Highlight

    The sunset on Hörnle is a dream. The quickest way leads over the south side, following the "Winterweg", then left at about 1150m. If you take the winter path in the direction of Grüntenhaus and goes from deadly direction to the summit, you have a wire insured rock ridge (dizziness and surefootedness!).

    Free parking is available at the end of Burgberg, direction Alpenblick. From the beginning of the mast road all parking spaces are chargeable!

  10. Falkenstein

    Hiking Highlight

    On the Falkenstein leads a relaxed hike. Who from the hiking parking lot height Freidorf (directly on the bypass to Kempten) parked, has a beautiful forest walk over roots and boulders in front of him. The parking lot is free of charge.

  11. Hahnenköpfle

    Mountaineering Highlight

    A real insider tip. This, compared to other Oberstdorfer peaks, little committed mountain offers several highlights. Over the wild light table, past waterfalls, it goes to the rustic mountain village Gerstruben and from there on to the summit. The descent takes place on the northern side of the mountain into the Oytal. Tip: if you do not want to walk the path out of the Oytal, borrow a mountain scooter and dive along the tarred road back to Oberstdorf.

    Refreshments: Gerstruben, Oytalhaus
