Suggested routes At Alpine altitude

Bergtour in der Gruppe
The Main Dolomite is a primary rock formation in the limestone Alps and one of the oldest types of rock in the Allgäu Alps.

Some 200 million years ago, the layer of stone formed on a subtropical mud flat that was hostile to life. Although originally deposited the
deepest, when the fold mountains were formed, it was pushed up on top of all newer earth and rock layers. As such, the Main Dolomite today forms the hugely rocky and impressive peaks of the Allgäu’s central main ridge from the "Hochvogel" to the "Biberkopf" and "Widderstein". Also characteristic of the Allgäu Alps are the extremely weathering resistant aptychi layers. Together with the spotted marl limestones, which are also extremely long-lasting, these were raised up during the creation of the Allgäu Alps and modelled through the weathering of the softer rocks that surrounded them. Especially in the case of the summits and rugged mountain ridges of the "Höfats" and the "Schneck", this resulted in the mountains that are characteristic of the Allgäu Alps. Nowhere else these kinds of summits can be found as predominantly as in the Oberstdorf mountains.

Heilbronner Weg to the "Bockkarscharte"

Length: 4.24 km Elevation gain/loss: 571 m
Duration: 4 hours

From the "Rappenseehütte", the Heilbronner Weg climbs the large stone col to the "Wiesleskar Cirque". A winding trail then continues upwards. On finally reaching the rocky terrain of the "Hohes Licht", you may need your hands for support for the first time. The steep climb leads to a rock ledge on the east face of the "Hohes Licht" before continuing uphill at a slightly more leisurely gradient. Several exposed or difficult sections are equipped with steel cables for your protection. After a few more metres, the route continues uphill to the small stone col. After a little aluminium bridge, the route becomes embedded in the rock once more and heads downhill towards the "Socktalscharte" where you will find an emergency descent route to the "Waltenberger Haus". From the col, the route winds its way up to the summit of the "Bockkarkopf". The rugged and rocky descent from the "Bockkarkopf" once again requires a great deal of concentration and sure-footedness. The more demanding section of the Heilbronner ridgeway ends at the "Bockkarscharte", from where the route continues along gentler terrain over the "Schwarze Milz" and the "Mädelejoch" to the "Kemptner Hütte".

Heilbronner weg 2
Mountain hike - Rubihorn

Length: 13.5 km Elevation gain/loss: 1.137 m
Duration: 6 hours

The route starts from the Nebelhornbahn middle station. Alternatively, the first almost 500 metres of elevation gain can be climbed via the "Faltenbachtobel" Ravine to the station Seealpe. The ascent to the summit takes you across the Roßbichl’s flowery mountain meadows before steeply winding its way up to the arête. The last few metres to the "Niedereck" involve a strenuous climb through dense mountain pines with steel cables for your protection. On reaching the arête, continue uphill to the summit of the "Rubihorn". Several slightly exposed sections are equipped with protective steel cables. A fascinating panoramic view of the Allgäu Alps awaits you at the summit! The descent starts by returning a short way below the arête before heading down initially very steep slopes to the lower lake "Gaisalpsee". This invites you to stop and fully enjoy the spectacular mountain scenery from your still high-up position. Below the mountain lake, the route descends down a steep and slightly rocky pass to the charmingly situated "Gaisalpe". From here, follow the "Wallrafweg" trail along the west side of the "Rubihorn" back to Oberstdorf. If you want to descend straight back into the valley, you can alternatively take one of two possible descent routes to Reichenbach.

Sonnenaufgang vom Rubihorn
Border stone 147

cycling and hiking to the southernmost point in Germany

Length: 37.3 km Elevation gain/loss: 1,050 m Duration: 7 hours

Hop on a bike and head from the south of Oberstdorf past the impressive ski flying hill and the Fellhornbahn cable car to deep into the Stillachtal valley. As long as you keep an eye out for pedestrians, cycling along the hiking trails is the more leisurely option but you’ll make quicker progress along the quiet roads. Behind the Alpe Eschbach at the end of the Stillachtal valley, the Buchrainer Steig climbs steeply up to the entrance of the Rappenalptal valley above. In the picturesque side valley, a tarmacked Alpine road heads up a largely gentle slope to the Biberalpe farm. Cyclists can extend the route via a steep, winding section up a gravel road to the Speicherhütte from where an Alpine climb leads to the Trifthütte, the southernmost building in Germany. Here, in the midst of the many flowers and remote mountain landscape, a few marmots enjoy the idyllic tranquillity. Despite its touristic importance, the southernmost point of Germany is rarely visited due to its remote location in the mountains.
The last few metres are steep and rocky so concentration and sure-footedness are essential! You will then have reached your destination for the day – border stone 147.

The quickest route back is to return the way you came. The first steep descent requires plenty of concentration, but once past this you can enjoy picturesque views over the entire Rappenalptal valley and the impressive Trettachspitze. Those who worked hard and pedalled their way into the valley are now rewarded with a leisurely and effortless descent, as the return through the long Rappenalptal valley follows a slight downhill almost all of the way. A stop at one of the rustic mountain restaurants is a great way to round off your visit to the Rappenalptal valley.

Haldenwanger Eck
On the Fellhorngrat

Length: 5.6 km Duration: 3 hours
Elevation gain/loss: 144 m uphill, 744 m downhill

On the ridge between Bavaria and Vorarlberg, the huge diversity of flora and the truly amazing views guarantee a first-class mountain hike! 

At the start of the short mountain route, a set of welldefined steps bring you to the summit of the Fellhorn. The breathtaking vista, taking in the Stillachtal and Kleinwalsertal valleys and extending all the way to the Hochifen and Gottesacker Plateau, makes this a truly panoramic summit experience. The subsequent descent takes you several metres along the western side of the narrow ridge, where steel cables are provided for your safety. The terrain here is rather exposed. After this section, the paths along the gently undulating, broad ridge soon widen.
The entire ridge section between the Fellhorn and Söllereck is a botanical jewel in the crown of the Allgäu Alps. Here, alpine roses, moonwort, mountain cornflower, “Wilde Männle” (literally “little wild men” – mountain anemones) with their distinctive seed heads, as well as a host of other mountain flora, some of which are rare and protected species, will delight the hearts of flower enthusiasts. From the Schlappoldeck, the route follows the ridge downhill to the Söllereck, offering scenic views of the Upper Allgäu. High above the Söllerwanne, the trail includes an exposed section – once again with steel cables for safety – where sure-footedness and a head for heights are essential. 
The descent leaves the ridge at the Söllereck. From here, the route takes you along a short, winding downhill stretch to the Sölleralpe. Passing by the dairy hut, the trail offers plenty of variety and ends with a nice easy stretch that brings you to the Schönblick mountain restaurant and lodge. From the Söllereckbahn mountain station, you can choose from a number of different descents into the valley. Alternatively, you can relax and give your knees a rest in the comfort of the Söllereckbahn cable car.

An der Fellhornbahn
Cross-border mountain tour to the "Fiderepasshütte"

Length: 12 km Elevation gain/loss: 870 m Duration: 5 hours

A day trip with magnificent views and a manageable level of Alpine difficulty
The ascent on the Fellhornbahn cable car gets a large part of the elevation gain out of the way. If you don’t want to miss out on the Fellhorn summit, stay on the cable car to the summit station.

If you do so, however, you will have to start the mountain tour with a short downhill section. The route from the Schlappoldsee middle station via the "Bierenwangalpe" hut offer Wonderful views.. Away from the well-developed hiking trails that connect the cable car stations, an Alpine climb surrounded by flowers leads past the ruined "Roßgundalpe" and the "Kühgundhütte" (not serviced) to the "Fiderepasshütte". Far-reaching views into the Stillachtal Valley and over many of the summits in the Allgäu Alps remain your constant companions. Although the ridgeway initially climbs gradually, the final section to the hut gets slightly steeper. Here, the route snakes its way upwards over scree. On reaching the shelter, you shouldn’t miss the great food. The "Fiderepass" marks the border between Germany and Austria. The descent on the far side of the pass offers views of the mountains in the Kleinwalsertal Valley, especially of the "Hoher Ifen" and "Gottesacker" plateaus. If you don’t yet want to descend, you can take in another summit via the serviced "Kuhgehrenalpe" hut. On returning to the cable car area, the Kanzelwandbahn will take you back into the valley. Alternatively, descend via the "Fluchtalpe" hut, down one of the easiest hut trails in the Allgäu Alps.
