After our overnight stay at Berggasthof Einödsbach we wake up early and start our "second Zipfeltour" to the southern light point of Germany, the landmark 147.At 8 o'clock it starts, we take the path that leads directly into the forest behind the mountain inn.It's so early in the morning and everything has something "magical" about it ...After a short stretch of forest and crossing the Bacherlochbach we come to the paved alpine road, which leads into the Rappenalptal.No one is on the road so early in the morning, the sun has not yet reached the valley with its rays, it is fresh and we walk comfortably down the road into the valley.We are already excited about the beautiful landscape.After about an hour we pass the black hut and wonder if the well on the way back for a refreshment has opened (unfortunately not ...).The black hut is an intermediate destination from which you can start several tours, including the Rappenseehütte and the Mindelheimer hut or the Krombacher Höhenweg.We leave the hut behind us and continue on the alpine road, now it is a bit uphill to the storage hut.Here we take a quick look around, take pictures and enjoy the light rays of the sun, which now find their way to the valley.From now on it goes uphill and we are no longer running on asphalt, but finally on a mountain path.We quickly get used to the ascent and run in good spirits towards the Triftz Hut, the southernmost building in Germany.Unfortunately, the Trift-Hüttte is not managed, but we still make a short rest here, eat and drink something and watch while watching the bustle of the marmots!Continue towards Haldenwanher Eck and the landmark. A signpost draws our attention to the Koblachhütte hut, which is only about 20 minutes up, we decide to make a detour there on the way back.We walk past the "Grasberg" of the Haldenwang corner and arrive at a small rock formation, nothing is signposted, but we suspect that it can not be far to the landmark anymore.We climb up the small rocks and then we can already see him, the Grezstein, our destination.The beautiful weather still does its part to allow us to really admire a beautiful piece of nature here.The landmark 147, which separates Tyrol, Vorarlberg and Bavaria, also marks the southernmost point in Germany! It lies at an altitude of 1931 meters.After taking a lot of pictures, we continue to Haldenwanger Eck. It's just beautiful here and after a few meters, we can look over to Austria both in the east and in the west and see some managed pastures and huts there.For a visit, the way is too long and we wieter to our next destination, the "summit cross" of the corner.Unfortunately, there is no path up there, so it's a bit "adventurous" over the alpine meadows to the summit.Up here, on the occasion of Edmund Stoiber's visit on 15.08.2003, a bench and a stainless steel cross were erected.Everything has more of a symbolic character than that it really should bring visitors here.Take a short breather, then back and at the same time to the Koblach hut.The path leads us over smaller rocks and into a small valley, also here it is really wonderful. The signpost has indicated the walking time correctly and after 20 minutes we are standing in front of the hut.As expected, this hut is not managed, it serves mountaineers and members of the Alpine Club as accommodation.We look around and then decide to head home.While we have to focus on the way in the first steeper descent, we can then enjoy the scenic view over the entire Rappenalptal and the imposing Trettach.We pass by the Trift-Hütte, the Speicherhütte and the black hut and stop in the Sennenalpe Breitengehren.Two Horlunderblütenschorlen, two coffee and two homemade apple pie, we have earned.The room of the Alpe is beautiful herrgereichtet, here you would have even in bad weather, the possibility to warm up ...We try the mountain cheese, from which we also buy something (with chili! Really delicious) and now we are on our way home to Berggasthof Einödsbach.After 30 minutes we are at the end of our wonderful tour and we look forward to our dinner in the mountain restaurant !!
