      It's easy for the others - on this tour you take the longest and most demanding ascent with a number of vertical meters to the Mindelheimer Hut. There is an amazing mountain panorama and a crystal-clear alpine lake to marvel at.At the Birgsau bus stop, which you can reach with line 7, you start the climb into the Alpine world. First gently over alpine meadows, then steeper over grassy meadows and along the edge of the forest, finally over a scree field. In the middle of Allgäu mountain pines you will quickly gain height. From the mountain path you have a wonderful view of the Stillach valley on the ascent to the Guggersee. It does not enchant by its size, but by the unique landscape. Unpack your snack and enjoy the view of the Allgäu main ridge for a few moments.You now wind your way along a narrow mountain path to the Mindelheimer Hütte. Reward yourself with a juicy Kaiserschmarrn and a cool drink before you tackle the no less exciting descent into the Kleinwalsertal. Via a ridge you get into the Wildental valley and past the impressive waterfall ever deeper into the Kleinwalsertal.From the Alpenrose stop, take bus line 1 to the Oberstdorf bus station. Alternatively, you can go the other way around: You take the first bus in the morning to Kleinwalsertal and hike back to Oberstdorf via the Mindelheimer Hut.You can find out more about the departure times of the bus routes here: oberstdorf.de/anreise-verkehr/busfahrplaene.html

      On this demanding tour you need to be fit and have a good head for heights, because you can expect a number of vertical meters in ascent and descent. You will be rewarded with a top-class Alpine panorama and a lot of peace and quiet away from the classic ascents.Immediately after you start at the Fellhornbahn valley station, the route goes up along the Warmatsgundbach. On warm days you will enjoy the coolness of the mixed and spruce forest that you are crossing. From the forest you switch to a quiet alpine road and from there to a challenging mountain path. You climb into a beautiful high valley and see the Fiderepass hut high above you for the first time. The last section to the hut leads steeply over scree slopes. For the effort, you can reward yourself with a hearty meal in the hut!Once you have recovered from the hardships of the ascent, you step on a saddle again. Then a promising ridge path leads you up to the top station of the Fellhornbahn. From here you float gently down to the starting point of your hike. Alternatively, you can descend from the hut through the Wildental valley to the Kleinwalsertal valley and then take the number 1 bus back to Oberstdorf. You can find the timetables here: oberstdorf.de/anreise-verkehr/busfahrplaene.htmlTip:
      If you want to spend a few days longer in the romantic mountains, you can spend the night at the Fiderepass hut. From there, a hut tour over the Allgäu main ridge is a great adventure, for example from the Fiderepass hut via the Mindelheimer hut, the Krumbacher Höhenweg or more demanding via the Mindelheim via ferrata.

      The glide path sounds more harmless than it is: on one of the most demanding ascents and descents in the Allgäu Alps, many exposed and steel cable insured spots await you. But your courage will be rewarded, because the path through the Oytal to the idyllic Seealpsee is also one of the most beautiful tours.To start the hike, gently climb uphill from Oberstdorf to the romantic Oytal. Here you will also meet the mountain inn of the same name - save it for a later break. After crossing the Oybach, the exciting part begins: in numerous serpentines and along rope-secured passages, the route climbs steeply.You walk over exposed terrain and accompanied by chamois, marmots and maybe even a golden eagle to the mysterious green shimmering Seealpsee. From here, the site is suspended. For the unique view of the Höfats and the Oytal you climb a little further. In addition to the wonderful view, you can also reward yourself with a well-deserved rest at the Edmund Probst Haus.Freshly rested, the ascent route takes you back down the valley. Once at the valley floor, you can look forward to a gentle meadow path that leads you through the wild and romantic Oytal and to the mountain inn of the same name.After a hearty meal, you can hike or take a rental scooter back to the starting point in Oberstdorf.

      Off to the southernmost point in Germany! No hustle and bustle awaits you there, but idyllic tranquility in a flowery, remote mountain world. The chances of seeing a few marmots are pretty good.Your adventure to the south begins on Prinzenstrasse. Past the Fellhornbahn you hike into the picturesque Stillachtal. As a guest at the Buchrainer Alpe you can taste the best, homemade alpine cheese. We continue up through the valley. Once you have reached the Biberalpe, the most difficult and exhausting part of the hike comes - the climb to Grenzstein 147. Because it is so secluded, you will probably have it and the fantastic Alpine panorama to yourself.In the same way as you came, you will start your way back to Oberstdorf.Tip: Since this is an extremely mile-long tour, you have two alternatives: You cycle up to the storage hut and then hike the rest of the way up to the boundary stone. Or you can take bus 7 from the Prinzenstraße stop, the start of the tour to Birgsau and / or on the way back. You will cover nine kilometers each. You can find the bus timetables at: oberstdorf.de/anreise-verkehr/busfahrplaene.html

      With this demanding circular hike, you move away from the main tourist streams and dive deep into the picture-perfect Traufbach valley with crystal-clear lakes and impressive gorges. Due to the increased level of difficulty, you should have a good level of sure-footedness.It starts on the banks of the Trettach at the Mühlenbrücke bus station. The path rises slowly and follows the course of the rushing river. After about five kilometers, it gets tiring. The demanding climb leads you deeper and deeper into a wild and impressive gorge. You cross the Traufbach on a footbridge and follow the Tobelweg. The higher Traufbach valley opens up in front of you, and it becomes more beautiful from step to step. The turquoise shimmering Christlessee is an absolute eye-catcher!Accompanied by waterfalls and the view of the imposing Krottenspitze you continue to climb to the Traufbergalpe. You have now earned a hearty snack or a Kaiserschmarrn. From now on it goes down to your starting point. The way back takes you this time along the other side of the Trettach.

      This scenic hike takes you deep into the area of the Faltenbachtobel. The impressive path along rushing waterfalls through the gorge is one of the most beautiful Tobel routes in the Allgäu with a breathtaking variety of flora and fauna.You start the beautiful tour at the valley station of the Nebelhornbahn and after a good kilometer you reach the narrow gorge that the Faltenbach has washed into the rock for centuries. Take a close look on your way along the swirling water, because here you can discover rare plant and animal species. Passing a hydropower plant, you climb up to the Seealpe, where a stop with the best view is worthwhile. Then it goes down on the other side of the fold brook.Tip: If you are already on the Seealpe, we recommend that you take the “Uff d´r Alp” adventure trail with you as an exciting family adventure.On the last stretch back to your starting point you will pass the Schattenberg ski jumps again. Every year the four hills jump starts here and you can even marvel at the impressive facility from the hill tower.

      Along the Stillach, always with a view of the striking peaks of the Allgäu main ridge, the sunny Stillach valley offers an excellent backdrop for this short but wonderful bike tour, which begins just outside Oberstdorf.You start at the Loretto chapels and first follow the road until the cross-country center Oberstdorf is in sight. In winter, cross-country skiers and biathletes can have fun on the cross-country trails - in summer, on the other hand, you can enjoy the beautiful mountains in peace.It continues along the refreshing Stillach until the first major highlight of the route is reached: the ski flying hill Oberstdorf. If you have brought some time with you, you should definitely take a break here and visit the completely modernized hill.After this impressive sports venue, it becomes idyllic again. Following the bike path, you continue into the valley to the valley station of the Fellhornbahn. From here the road is closed to public traffic, so that you can enjoy the next section of the route - apart from the occasional regular bus service - all to yourself until the hamlet of Birgsau is suddenly in sight. The houses with the small chapel are picturesquely set against the beautiful backdrop of the Allgäu Alps.The Birgsauer Hof restaurant invites you to stop here. However, if you want it to be a little simpler and more rustic, you can simply cycle a little further down into the valley to Alpe Eschbach. The alp is farmed in summer and produces its own cheese, which can be tasted with a hearty snack. Whatever you choose - afterwards you are rested and strengthened ready for the way back, which almost only goes downhill anyway and thus represents the enjoyable end of this tour.

      This tour takes you steeply uphill to the Sennalpe Schlappold - it is a short but crisp pleasure with around 850 meters of altitude and is therefore only recommended for trained bikers.Start and finish are at the impressive ski flying hill Oberstdorf, from where it is very leisurely at first, but then increasingly steeper to the Schwand hamlet. There is a short downhill section where you can rest your legs again. Now it gets challenging: the route only goes uphill to the Schlappoldalpe.The following, sometimes very steep, sections of the route not only require excellent physical condition, but also a certain level of driving technique. At the non-managed Schlappold Höfle, you can take a short break before continuing up to Alpe Schlappold, Germany's highest Sennalpe.Once at the top, you are rewarded with a magnificent view of the Allgäu Alps and a hearty snack for the strenuous uphill climb. While you are resting, you can look forward to the return trip, because you drive the same way as on the outward journey - but now it only goes downhill! It's really fun. Nevertheless, you should take a short break from time to time so that the brakes on your bike do not overheat.If you fancy a little refreshment after the tour, a detour to Freibergsee, which is not far from the ski flying hill, is worthwhile. With its cool water, the former glacial lake promises a pleasant cooling after the efforts of the bike tour.

      In a constant up and down, this fantastic tour leads into the beautifully situated Kleinwalsertal, past alpine huts, up to the area of the mountain railways. With a length of around 35 kilometers and the steep ascent to the Schrattenwangalpe, this round is quite demanding.It starts on the outskirts of Oberstdorf. Over a demanding, steep path you overcome the long, demanding climb that leads you up to the mountain station of the Söllereckbahn and to the Schrattenwangalpe. The higher you go, the better the view and when you get to the top, you really deserve to take a deep breath and rest for a while.A short detour to Austria follows: Shortly after the Alpe you cross the border - but the landscape remains beautiful. A long descent follows to Riezlern in the Kleinwalsertal. You cross the Breitach and focus on the next highlight: Back on German soil, the idyllic Osterbergalpe offers another stop. Then you drive through the picturesque Starzlachtal back to Oberstdorf.Tip:
      If you like it more comfortable, just take an e-bike. This will help you overcome the first long climb with ease. Alternatively, you can also get help from the mountain railway: Bicycles are transported by the Söllereckbahn until 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. However, e-bikes are not taken along.

      This tour takes you from the Rohrmoostal to the picturesque Piesenalpe. It is short but crisp, because there are a few vertical meters to overcome. The reward for your sweat is a fantastic view and really tasty, spicy mountain cheese.From the Rohrmoostal you first drive deeper into the valley towards Sibratsgfäl. After this short warm-up, the climb to the Piesenalpe begins. The asphalted alpine path now goes steadily uphill: partly steep, partly moderate, through the Sperber Winkel, further and further to the cooling floors and finally to the alp. The Piesenkopfalpe is directly below the 1,630-meter-high Piesenkopf. There is a small chapel in the middle of the cattle pastures diagonally left above the alpine hut. If you feel like it, a little detour is worthwhile. The idyllic Piesenalpe is also known for its tasty mountain cheese, which is available there on site. Here you can take a break and relax before you go back to Oberstdorf on the same path - only downhill this time.
