Best Hikes to Ponten
  • The summit cross is slightly shifted forward on a small summit and can be reached in a simple Kraxelei on a small rock level.

  • As is so often the case, the path to the upstream and lower summit with a summit cross looks more difficult than it is. Make sure you take the correct route on the way back. Very quickly you stand on the sandy abyss.

  • Nice summit that belongs to the easy 2000s.
    Really great 360° all-round view over the Tannheimer Tal, the Allgäu Alps, the Kleinwalsertal and all the way to the Ammergau Alps!

  • Was now also relatively early in the year to reach. Although it also went over snow fields, but rather in non-critical terrain.
    From the summit you have a good view of the Tannheimer Tal and the Allgäu Alps, but also further towards Säntis and Austria.
    It was pretty quiet today. We took a break on the Willersalpe, otherwise it was probably well attended...

  • The summit is a bit exposed, I would say breezy 😅 Those who dare will be rewarded with a super beautiful view (:

  • Easy to climb two thousand meter peak, only the transition to the pre-summit, on which the cross stands, is a bit tricky
