    The Königsbergweg in the Allgäu Alps. Long before the term via ferrata was invented, the Heilbronn section of the German Alpine Club set up a high alpine path that leads across the rugged peaks of the Allgäu main ridge. Ladders, bridges and rope-insured passages promise you a breathtaking mountain adventure, a little thrill and fantastic views.

    Although the entrance to the Heilbronner Weg can not be reached by cable car, it can be quite crowded here on summer weekends. If you want to experience the tour in more solitude, you should start during the week, in early summer or in autumn.

    The Heilbronner Weg is not without reason among the classics. Anyone who has the opportunity to go with him in good weather and the best view, really experienced a highlight. One or the other challenge is feasible and manageable. The reward is breathtaking views.

    A classic in the Allgäu Alps - conditionally very demanding in one day. Best with intermediate overnight stay, either at the Kemptener Hütte or the Rappenseehütte, make - tour description here via-ferrata.de/klettersteige/topo/heilbronner-weg-allgaeu

    Very worthwhile, even during the week many people are on the way. Always nice views, if the weather plays along.

    Built in 1899, it is one of the most beautiful mountain trails in Germany

    Stand 26.June 2019. The path is walkable, but in some sections considerable amounts of snow are still present and the rope guards under snow. So you have to go on snow. For example, the ascent to the ladder is only possible over steps of snow.
    I would advise anyone without this experience and equipment to commit this way currently.
    (If you want to take a picture, just take a look at the photos of me in the highlight)
    The High Light and the Girl Fork are still not accessible (not groomed)!
