  • Höhenprofil

    Impressive hike with the help of cableways. This tour gives a good overview of the entire valley of Kleinwalsertal. Wildental is a typical side valley of the Kleinwalsertal.

    The tour starts with a ride of the Kanzelwandbahn (cableway). Once you reach the top station you can enjoy the fantastic panoramic view. The hike leads via the Adlerhorst and Kuhgehrensattel into the valley Wildental, passing the Alpine Pastures Kuhgehren, Wannenalpe, Fluchtalpe and Wiesenalpen. The farmed pastures provide different views over the mountain landscape of the Kleinwalsertal.

    The inner Kuhgehrenalpe provides hearty local snacks with sausages and cheese, soups, homemade cakes and drinks. You can sit on the terrace and look at the beautiful mountain landscape while enjoying a cold beer or a glass of fresh milk. The Fluchtalpe also provides traditional local snacks and homemade cakes. If you are thirsty, you should try traditional drinks such as Skiwasser, buttermilk and more. The inner Wiesenalpe also provides the opportunity to rest on either the terrace or inside the comfortable hut while trying a few products from the farm. There is bread, mountain and alpine cheese, remoudou, sausages, cakes, alpine butter, quark and yoghurt. There also is a possibility to have breakfast here if you call first. The sight of the Schafalpköpfe is impressive time and time again. Even the lower Wiesalpe is serviced during the summer month (closed on Wednesdays) and offers snacks, drinks and dairy products.

    You can also walk directly from the inner Kuhgehrenalpe through the Wildental to the inner Wiesalpe (roughly one hour less of hiking time).
