Varied and cozy through forests and over meadows. Great views, varied nature and small playgrounds along the way with refreshments.
An appealing hike through forests and and over meadows is waiting for you in Ofterschwang. Plenty of beautiful nature makes the tour a hiker's experience for the whole family. On the nature trail you will find exciting information about the origins and cultivation alpine landscape of the Allgäu. From the parking at the valley station of the cable car in Ofterschwang, the path leads via the nature trail to Hüttenberg. From here you go uphill passing "Alpe Eck" and the huts Hochbichl and Wurzelhütte again downhill to the valley station.
Tips: Combine the tour with a visit to the mountain-dairy in Hüttenberg - ideal for taking small treats along for the walk. At the Allgäuer Berghof at Alpe Eck, the DiscGolf Parcours invites you to play a round of Discgolf. Here, unlike golfing, a frizbee must be thrown in special baskets. You can relax in the sun on comfortable sofas at the rustic Hochbichl hut - the only alpine hut with outdoor sofas. The "Wurzelhütte" with a cozy restaurant, Schlitte Hitte with its great alpine ambience and the pizzeria in the Ofterschwanger Haus at the base station in Ofterschwang invite you to a cozy stopover.
Every Thursday at 10.15 o'clock there is a free tour through the alpine dairy in the Bergbauern-Sennerei Hüttenberg. The high-quality alpine milk, the basic product of the famous Allgäu mountain cheese, is made from our succulent green meadows.
