      From Weiler, you turn east and be the first to climb the hill that rises in front of you. Then you dive into a forest that you walk the next two kilometers. Where you leave the trees behind, you walk through narrow, little-used roads between meadows and courtyards to the glacial pot. This deep hole in a stone does not look that spectacular, but its formation makes it special: it has been ground into the earth by the interplay of water and rocks for thousands of years.Then you walk a bit along the road to the north and then turn right back into a dirt road. On rural roads you can once again enjoy the Allgäu cultural landscape. You gradually gain height and finally reach the Skywalk, a treetop path that takes you even further towards the sky. Then it is only two kilometers to the destination in Scheidegg - and it is also a very relaxed downhill.

      Today, the water strider route lives up to its name once again. You will discover a cold fountain, a moor with a lake and a stream, the water of which has created a gorge. First you hike from Oberreute south to the next hump. The border between Germany and Austria runs up here and you will learn exciting things about this topic on an adventure trail. As soon as you have returned to Bavaria, you are already exploring the wild rose moss.Now a long descent begins, which leads you first through a forest and then briefly into an inhabited area. But you immediately leave houses and streets behind and dive into the Hausbachklamm. Here green and blue glowing pools, waterfalls and steep rock faces sweeten your path. Where the gorge ends, you have almost reached your destination in Weiler-Simmerberg.

      To leave Oberstaufen, you turn west. The first ascent of the day begins on the outskirts of the village, but there are only 150 vertical meters to overcome. These are immediately rewarded with a beautiful view of the Hochgrat, the highest mountain in the Nagelfluh range. Then it goes back down and past a few houses. You cross the country road twice and start the next little climb.The village lifts are operated here on the hill in winter. These mini-ski areas with drag lifts are still very popular in the Allgäu, especially with families. After the descent, a detour to the Artemisia herb garden is definitely worthwhile. There is also a nice café here, where you can find delicious cakes and coffee. Then a forest path takes you to the gates of Oberreute, where you stop for the night.

      It is hard to get fed up with the green of the Allgäu, but today you can still look forward to a blue change. Because on this day the water of two rivers determines your day. To the south, you first follow the Lechufer. You cross the first bridge and enjoy the beautiful paths through the meadow landscape. They take you to a dam, from which you have a wonderful view south over the Premer Lechsee towards the mountains.We continue along the bank until another river comes from the left. Here the half-sheet flows into the Lech. At Küchele you cross the water and climb a bit on the other side because there is no path directly on the shore. But soon you will come back to the river, which will take you to Halblech. Here the stage ends at the southern outskirts.

      The name of the place where the stage begins already suggests where it is going today: namely from Stötten am Auerberg to Auerberg. This mountain may arouse your anticipation, because it offers a wonderful view from just over 1,000 meters. The foot of its elongated back extends almost to the southern outskirts of Stötten. You go there and always walk straight up your back on the so-called Roman path. You can already enjoy the view of the Alps here. The church of St. George marks the summit, with a restaurant beneath it.Then it goes down over the Jägersteig on the other side. You may have noticed it from above: In this part of the Allgäu, there are many small hamlets between the meadows and forests. You follow narrow streets with little traffic and dirt roads through a change of tranquil villages and grassland. This entertaining route takes you to Lechbruck am See.

      At the beginning of the 23rd stage you go to the eastern edge of Marktoberdorf, where the imposing St. Martin church is located. Take your time here and look around a bit. The way today is not that far. Then you go east, where the path soon turns into Kurfürstenallee. It is flanked by old linden trees that are around 200 years old.About halfway down the avenue, you leave it heading north and roam the idyllic Allgäu landscape between green meadows, shady forests and picturesque villages with little up and down. The route describes a semicircle via Bertoldshofen and Burk. Then you meet the bank of the Geltnach, which you follow a bit before you hike from Liesewanger from the north into Stötten am Auerberg.

      You leave Lindenberg to the north and walk through forests and meadows past isolated farms and small towns. It goes more downhill than uphill and you get to Meckatz, where one of the better-known breweries in the Allgäu is based. You cross Leiblach and climb a hill in a large right-hand bend. Here you can expect a panoramic route with picturesque views.It's almost like that via Menzen to Wolfertshofen, where you turn north to hike in the valley of the Upper Argen to the Syrgenstein Castle. You can enjoy the view from the outside, because it is privately owned and cannot be visited. Now follows a short stretch along the road past Eglofstal to the east. At the Gasthaus zum Bären you will soon turn left again to hike up the hill to Eglofs. Today's stage ends on the beautiful village square.

      This stage on the water walker route of the Allgäu hiking trilogy puts you in the right mood and leads past imposing waterfalls and idyllic lakes. At the Scheidegger Kurhaus you start on the road northwards and walk past the first pond on the left. Then you cross the road and climb up to the short mountain trail, which gives you a first beautiful view of the mountains. Then you stroll through the village and dive into the picturesque Allgäu pre-alpine landscape on the other side.Meadow and forest paths take you to the Scheidegger waterfalls. To visit them, you briefly leave the route of the hiking trilogy. It continues comfortably through the rural area to Allmannsried. If the weather is good, you can spot a piece of Lake Constance in front of the place if you look west. To the east you will soon reach the pretty forest lake, which is right next to your destination Lindenberg. If you still have time, you can stay for a while on the water and go swimming or explore the moor path on the shore. But there is still a lot to discover in Lindenberg: The place is known for its hat production, which you can find out more about in a museum.

      The crowning glory of the Celestial Route is climbing the Aggenstein. This marvelous panoramic summit is popular and much visited in summer. But you have something ahead of all other hikers today. After you have spent your night at the Bad Kissinger Hütte, you only need about 30 minutes to reach the summit after breakfast. The steep and stony path is a bit challenging, but well rested and focused.After you have thoroughly enjoyed the view, it is just as steep on the north side. You hike over a back to the second summit of the day, up to the Breitenberg. Just stop again and take a look back at the imposing Aggenstein. Take another time on the Breitenberg to take a closer look. From there you descend over your back to the west. Then the path turns and takes you into the valley of the Steinacher Ache. There are a few hairpin bends to get there, but then it gets easier and you hike your last steps on the sky stormer route out of the valley to Pfronten.

      Prepare yourself for incredible mountain views. Because today it's going up again. From Tannheim go parallel to the main road to the east and then turn left to Grän. Here you go up to the valley station of the mountain railway at Füssener Jöchle. With a moderate climb, you can warm up first before it gets really steep. A road leads up to Gessenwangalpe, which is not managed. You can always shorten its large hairpin bends via a footpath.At the fork below the Haller Schrofen, turn left and climb up to the Füssener Jöchle, where the mountain station of the cable car is located. Now most of it is done and with a little bit of ups and downs it continues to the northeast. The view will likely keep stopping you again and again. You can reach the saddle between Brentenjoch and Aggenstein via wonderful paths, where the Bad Kissinger Hütte awaits you a few meters away.
