    The Hohe Ifen is a 2230 m high mountain in the Allgäu Alps, west of the Kleinwalsertal. In winter it forms the backdrop for a small ski area. It lies on the border between Germany and Austria. The summit represents the highest point of the slightly inclined Ifenplateau. On it the municipal boundaries of Egg, Mittelberg (both Vorarlberg) and Oberstdorf (Schwaben) meet. Northeast of the Ifenplateau is the Gottesackerplateau, a protected karst landscape with numerous caves and rare mountain plants. The most important caves are the Hölloch in the Mahdtal and the Schneckenlochhöhle near Schönenbach. On the eastern slope of the Bergstock, a Stone Age dwelling was discovered in 1998 by the amateur archaeologist Detlef Willand on Schneiderkürenalpe at an altitude of about 1,500 m, and was uncovered by the University of Innsbruck with expert support.

    It was a great experience to climb this mountain. The view in all directions including Lake Constance is particularly remarkable.
