Panoramic and varied tour in and on the edge of the Iller Valley. The tour leads up the mountain slope, down through meadows and forests and passes the beautiful golf course Sonnenalp at the Tiefneberg bog. On the Wittelsbacher Höhe near Schweineberg it iss worth to take the small detour to the old tree on the hilltop - an impressive view of the Allgäuer main ridge.
