    Nice tour and a must in Kleinwalsertal. Three cable cars lead to the high Ifen. each to a different altitude, but none to the summit. From the third cable car to the summit, it takes about 1-2 hours to walk. The path is well marked and offers a great view of the Gottesacker Plateau. The way to the Gottesacker is also recommended. The ascent to the summit is easily feasible, but you should be sure-footed, as a scree field must be crossed. Where necessary, the path is even provided on the rock with safety ropes. The ascent and / or descent can also be done via the Schwarzwasserhütte, walking time approx. 6-8 hours from the valley.

    View into three different landscapes with their different types of rocks and plants. Directly the national border in front of the nose. Highly recommended, climb slightly challenging!

    Super hiking tour with 2 variants. Option 1: descent via Schwarzwasserhütte and variant 2: over the Gottesacker plateau, however, longer distance
