Thomas and Sonja went mountaineering.
September 27, 2019
We drive from Oberstdorf with Bersteigerbus No. 8 to Spielmannsau. The trip costs just € 3.90 per person, the first bus leaves from 7:45 clock, you should be early, as the bus only about 20 people.Arriving at the Spielmannsau, a tarmac path leads us a little way to the material cable car, where it then turns right and becomes unpaved.Since it has rained a lot and often in the last few days our way is very muddy and slippery, so caution was needed.We walk about 45 minutes before the road then improves and we can continue on rocky ground. The deeper we go into the Trettachtal, the more beautiful the landscape becomes. After crossing the first bridge, we take a short break at the pilgrimage site "Maria am Knie", then we enter the Sperrbachtobel and with every step we take, a new picture of the rustic and wild landscape opens up. In Sperrbachtobel we are careful, because of the rock walls repeatedly melted water splashes on our way and thus are always slippery rock passages to cross.After crossing the ravine we get a glimpse of the scratch and the muttler head behind us, the crotch head, which lies behind the muttler head, we can not see yet.We are quite exhausted from the strenuous climb and are happy to see the Kemptner Hut for the first time. Now it does not take long anymore and we are standing in front of her.Quickly we realize that we are probably early, it's 11:30 Clock and the hut is still closed ....At 12 o'clock the time has finally come and we can strengthen with a Flädele soup and a cheese and bacon bread with a cyclist and an elderflower spritzer.Somewhat rested, we now decide to ascend the Mädelejoch. Here is another pilgrimage site and at the same time the state border between Germany and Austria.There you have a wonderful view of the Kemptner Hütte, the Kratzer, the Muttlerkopf and also on the Krottenkopf.We enjoy the tranquility, look around a bit, before it goes back to Kemptner hut and we begin the descent to Spielmannsau.Back it goes on the same way, at the Alpe Oberau we make a rest and enjoy coffee and cheesecake, then it goes at 17:10 clock with the mountain bus back to Oberstdorf.Beautiful but also very exhausting tour that you should not run in the rain.
Varied hut climb through the picturesque Trettachtal and the wild Sperrbachtobel to Kemptner hut. Very nice tour.
