Romantic walk along the Breitach - from Baad Bödmen to Hirschegg and Riezlern.
The Breitachweg describes the course from the last valley village Baad to Riezlern. There are many entry points or exit places along the route. So you can shorten and design the winter hike as desired. During the course you cross or pass two of the remaining covered wooden bridges in Kleinwalsertal: the Höfler bridge in Mittelberg and the Leidtobelbrück in Hirschegg. In the section between Hirschegg and Riezlern the route runs along the children's adventure path "Burmiweg".

The Walserbus is a convenient way to reach your starting point. Line 1 takes you to the village Riezlern. For this tour you need to get off at the bus stop "Riezlern Post".
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 close to the starting point.
