About the Ausserschwende it goes up to the Gasthof Hörnlepass. Soon you cross the Bächteletobel - high moors with their very own plant life alternate with meager meadows. From the rear you have a fantastic view of the valley. The whole mountain range from the Fellhorn to the Hohe Ifen and all three church towers of the Kleinwalsertal lie in front of you. Down the trail now leads over Fuchsloch to the Breitach. Left it goes to Breitachklamm, turning right after a short hike at the forest house and the small Zwing over from where it goes uphill to the starting point.
Public transport friendly
Leave the car where it is!
The Walserbus is a convenient way to reach your starting point. Line 2 takes you to the district Schwende. For this tour you need to get off at the bus stop "Bergblick".
Most routes from Germany lead to Ulm before carrying on along the A7. 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.
A parking area (fee required) is located directly by the starting point.
