Hiking Highlight (Segment)
KEEN Footwear planned a hike.
January 31, 2021
On your tour into the Oytal you will experience huge mountain panoramas and wild waters - everything that makes a hike an unforgettable experience. Your tour starts at the train station in Oberstdorf. So you can arrive relaxed by train. From the mill bridge, the path initially leads along the Trettach to the Oybach bridge just before Gruben. Excited and wonderfully refreshing, the brook bubbles in its wide gravel bed. Dense forest cover gives you pleasant shade here in summer. The mountain scenery around you is no less spectacular and your camera also has a lot to do here.After about four kilometers, the stream narrows and pours down the steeper river bed in great cascades. It rustles and bubbles just like that. Two and a half kilometers later, the view of the next highlight opens up: a spectacular waterfall plunges down into the Oytal along mossy-green steep slopes. A short time later you will reach the Berggasthof Oytalhaus. Here you can enjoy Bavarian specialties and wonderful views.The exposed grass flanks and rugged rocky peaks are typical of the Allgäu High Alps. The mountains Schneck, Himmelhorn and the Great and Small Wild, which you will pass on your hike, give you a nice impression of this wild beauty. On the valley floor you stroll over lush green pastures and you will rarely be able to avert your gaze from the water-rich rock walls rising vertically next to you.If you still have reserves, you can extend your hike to the end of the valley below the Höfats on the Käseralpe. Otherwise, after a long rest, it's time to return to Oberstdorf - either on foot or you can rent a scooter at the inn - a great alternative for tired hikers' legs!
