From the Walserhaus in Hirschegg, the route leads along the Walserstraße towards Mittelberg. After about one kilometer, we turn right into the Rohrweg, which leads us past the reservoir to the top station of the Parsennbahn. Follow the Schwarzwassertalstraße to the Auenhütte at the valley station of the Ifen lift and further towards Melköde. The view of the beautifully situated Herzsee will soon open up. The further route leads us through the wild and romantic nature reserve Rüche. On both sides of the path there are huge boulders in a tangled mess - witnesses of a huge rock fall that went down centuries ago. The highest point is reached at the left-hand shrine and we continue on the path on the right to the Alpe Melköde, whose ancient settlement was inhabited all year round according to documents in 1612. The Alpe was recognized as a pleasure hut by the GenussRegion Österreich. The way back is to Herzsee. There we choose the right path and get back to the Schwarzwassertalstraße and the same route as on the way back over the Heuberg to Hirschegg.
It's a lot more fun with your bike.
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.
