Mittelberg (1206 m)
32T 587256 5241755
Starting at the bandstand in Mittelberg, follow the small road toward "Wildental" down to the main road, while enjoying the view of the Bärenkopf. After about 200 meters on the Bödmerstraße turn left into the street "Im Hag" a; a large sign shows the direction to Gasthof Schwendle. It continues down on the Wildentalstraße, over the bridge and slightly uphill to the Gasthof Schwendle. On the way you can have a look at Mittelberg and the Zafernalift before hiking through the forest to Bergheim Moser, where you can stop for refreshments. Continue on the flat trail and leave the paved road behind. Now you have the last longer rise ahead, about 15-20 minutes uphill (it is possible to turn left towards Höfle, Hirschegg earlier – however it is worthwhile to walk up). Looking back you see the Gottesackerplateau, looking forward the three Schafalpköpfe are getting closer. When you have reached the Innere Wiesalpe you are rewarded with a rest with a spectacular view.
Continue to walk down towards Höfle, past the wild animal feeding and wonderful benches with view; After around 15 minutes you pass the energy place, where you can stay a while. Once you have crossed the slopes of the Höfle lift, you soon reach the beautiful panoramic terrace of the "Gasthof Alpenblick". Continue on the road and at the Haus Bergidyll turn right onto the Höflerweg until the beautiful Höflerbrücke that was rebuilt after the 2005 flood. From here, it is now about 10 minutes uphill walk back to Mittelberg / Alpenrose, the end point of this winter hike. If you find this last passage too steep you can also turn left and walk along the Breitach back to Bödmen for about 20 minutes.
The walk can be shortened for about an hour. To do this, take Walserbus (line 4) in Mittelberg until the junction Schwendle below the Gasthof Schwendle and return from the bus stop "Höfle" behind the Gasthof Alpenblick.
Alternatively entrance also in Hirschegg possible over Dürenboden, Breitach, Höfle.

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 at the Walmendingerhorn lift, approx. 5 minutes from the starting point.
