The Breitenberg is a magnificent vantage point in the Allgäu Alps. From the 1838 m high Breitenbergbeim and while tobogganing on the more than 6.5 km long track we enjoy the numerous views of the mountains in the Allgäu and the neighbouring Austria.
We start our ascent from the Engetal, which connects Pfronten with the Tannheimer Tal.
During the ascent we are on the prepared toboggan run, on which we also enjoy the long but safe descent.
The last metres of altitude difference to the Ostlerhütte on the Breitenberg are steeper and finally challenge our physical condition again.
Our ascent ends at the Ostlerhütte with its magnificent panoramic terrace - and we return to our starting point on a downhill run that is as rapid as it is impressive, over 800 metres in altitude down into the Engetal valley.
