The Allgaeu’s most popular hiking routes

A tour to the peak of the Grünten (often referred to as “Watcher of the Allgaeu”) is for everyone of a solid basic condition to climb up the short but sharp ascent. The reward is a fantastic view over the south of Oberallgaeu. If you start your hike in the early hours of the days, you have a chance to witness a breathtaking sunrise.

The comfortable hike over the Obermaiselsteiner Sagenweg (myth path of Obermaiselstein) up to the Sturmanns cave gives interesting insight into the Allgaeu myths. The cave at the end of the tour is a popular attraction for younger explorers.

One of the best places to admire the Allgaeu Alps is the Hauchenberg peak. There is a view tower at Alpkönigsblick. A hiking route starting in Missen leads the viewpoint and can ideally be combined with a visit to the Bergbauernmuseum in Diepolz.

If you choose to take the European long distance trail E5 for your alpine crossing, the starting point is set in the Allgaeu. The first leg leads from Oberstdorf up to the Kemptner hut and continues to the Mädelejoch at the German-Austrian border.

When you should ever get the chance to visit eastern Allgaeu (Ostallgäu), you should not miss the opportunity to admire Schloss Neuschwanstein (Neuschwanstein Castle). In case you want to avoid other tourists simply take a hike around the Tegelberg and enjoy the spectacular sight of the castle – free of charge!
