The Upper high path is a panorama trail below the Walmendingerhorn providing marvelous views on the mountain arena of the Kleinwalsertal. An easy walk with several resting point and refreshment stops.
Distance 5 km
Sitting in the chair lift, we watch the Ifen appear in the distance. From the Heuberg lift to the Bühlalpe the spruce and sycamore forest alternates with colorful flower meadows. This is why the trail is also called panorama trail: First we look towards the Kanzelwand, then into the Wildental and Gemsteltal and to parts of Mittelberg. Before we descend below the Bühlalpe and walk back to Mittelberg we are offered splendid views towards Baad and the posterior Kleinwalsertal. If you need a little rest before the return to Mittelberg – stop for a refreshment at the Bühlalpe!
Look out for the educational stations along the trail: Learn interesting things about avalanche safety and mountain flora!

Take the Allgäu junction over a section of the A980 to the Waltenhofen junction, then take the 4- lane B19 via Sonthofen and Oberstdorf to Kleinwalsertal. From Austria (Vorarlberg) and Switzerland you reach the Kleinwalsertal via the Bregenzerwald (Hittisau) – Riedbergpass – Fischen – Oberstdorf. From Tyrol the fastest route is over the A7 to Kempten carrying on along the B19 direction Oberstdorf. A motorway vignette is not required to reach the valley.
