A good 185 kilometers (115 miles) of marked hiking trails lead through the alpine idyll of Kleinwalsertal, taking you up steep mountains and over gentle hills to cozy mountain huts. Whatever that familiar tingling feeling of wanderlust triggers in your feet, you are guaranteed to find what you are looking for on the endless hiking trails in Kleinwalsertal. The route is often affectionately known as the “most beautiful dead-end road in the world,” and for good reason. In this Collection, we’ve put together a few of the varied hikes in the region/
From the Gottsacker Plateau, at the foot of the mighty Ifen, which takes you to challenging high altitudes, to the thunderous Breitachklamm, the deepest rock gorge in Europe – these nine-day hikes have many unexpected surprises.
Life plays out more quietly in the valleys below as you hike beside a stream as it flows towards the peaks which you can even climb later. If you like to take things steady, stop off in a hut en route such as one of the six GenussHütten in Kleinwalsertal. Here you can enjoy the region’s seasonal specialities and tuck into a well-deserved snack with a view.
As if that wasn’t already enough, the routes include highlights carefully-picked for you. If your feet need a cool down midway through the mountains then you can look forward to the four nature Kneipp areas. The nature experience areas are also impressive. You’ll find quiet spots along the hiking trails that showcase the powerful mountains and offer a special insight into nature in the valley. All that’s left to say is pack your hiking gear and set off towards Kleinwalsertal to enjoy some well-deserved time in the outdoors.
You might think that a natural idyll like Kleinwalsertal is hard to reach but the opposite is true. Take the Walserbus from Oberstdorf into the valley. You can find more information, here:
