    Respect for the performance Stefan.
    I have to rummage through all your great posts now mal.
    What is the difficulty of crossing the Alps or the E5?
    Wanted to do that too

    Hello Lars, thank you very much. The level of difficulty is rather subjective, we found the E5 quite simple. Only the way from the Verpeilhütte to the Riffelseehütte over the Madatschjoch and the Cottbusser Höhenweg was a bit more difficult. You could also avoid this section by choosing a different route. There are several variants of the E5, some with bus and🚠, so that everyone can customize the tour according to their needs. However, the difficulty can change at any time due to rain, snow and fog. On our route there were two road closures due to wind thunderstorms or the urgent need to avoid a section of road due to a snow field. The worst thing for me was the overnight stay at the Memminger Hütte (only the bed storage - everything else was great there). We found the E5 fantastically beautiful and varied, had great experiences and encounters - and think about what we do next (maybe the Lechweg 😉). I'll write a short summary later and post it here. 🙋🏼♂️

    Small summary of our hike from Oberstdorf to Meran on the E513 hiking days
    218 km from Oberstdorf train station to Meran Bhf
    12500 vertical meters
    no bubbles
    Shoes: Hanwag Combi GTX
    Backpack: Osprey Talon with 44 liters, weighs only 1100 g
    Total backpack weight: about 10 kg, of which about 2.5 liters of water and 500 g of batteries and chargers. This backpack was quite enough for two weeks hiking.
    about 70 € average cost / person / day
    Highest night: Similaunhütte 3019 m
    Highest point of the tour: near the Ötzi 3240 m
    Highest peak: Karleskopf 2901 m
    5 nights in mountain huts (Memminger, Verpeil, Rifflsee, Braunschweiger and Similaunhütte)
    Memminger hut: very well organized, lots of ibex, large hut with a large mattress camp
    Verpeilhütte: super friendly staff, very nice cabin with small rooms, very good food, but unfortunately only rain after arrival.
    Kaunergrathütte: very nice ambience, friendly staff, here we did not spend the night, because the way to Brunswick would otherwise have been very long.
    Rifflseehütte: the landlord likes it better if you order half board when booking, location and room good.
    Braunschweiger Hütte: friendly and confident staff, great food, magnificent glacier view, large hut with small camps
    Similaunhütte: partly rustic, partly modern, overnight at over 3000 m, unfortunately we had almost only fog
    2 nights Meraner Höhenweg (Montferthof, Giggelberg)
    Montferthof: super friendly, very delicious food (it is eaten, which is on the table), ancient farmhouse with lots of charm, unfortunately also a number of flies
    Giggelberg: nice modern rooms, great views over Meran in good weather
    5 nights in the valley (hotel / pension), followed by two nights in the Hotel Kessler Dorf Tirol.
    We had booked the most accommodations in January; but made a change during the hike due to bad weather forecast.
    Arrival by car - two weeks parked free in fish (P & R), return transport by bus Prenner.
    Conclusion: If we had not hiked the E5 yet, we would do it now. We would do much the same and change a few points with our current knowledge. We had informed ourselves a few months earlier, read guides and researched the Internet. Especially we liked the reports of Beate and Klaus (beateundklaus.de) and helped.
