Popular hiking tour on top of the german-austrian border region. Spectacular sights into Kleinwalsertal and Stillachtal and as far as Kempten.
Thanks to the convenient ascent and descent by cable car, this tour is a pure enjoyment on top. Still, you should be prepared for the nearly six kilometer climb to the Fellhorn. The trail between the peaks offers magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. Especially the Gottesackerplateau and Ifen fascinate with their exceptional geological forms. On weekends there is much oncoming traffic and rush on the summits to be expected in the two-country region.
Sturdy shoes. Hiking poles recommended for steeper sections.

From the mountain station of Söllereckbahn we walk through a wooded area with a moderate increase to Sölleralpe. At the Alpe serpentines lead us to the ridge that leads to the Söllerkopf. Keeping to the right, we follow the well-trodden path to Schlappoldkopf and Fellhorn summit. Well-maintained stairs lead from there down to the summit station of Fellhornbahn. We continue straight on towards Kanzelwand. After two serpentines at the storage pond, the mountain railway station is reached which brings us down to Riezlern .
