  • If you like water you will love this tour to the Breitachklamm Gorge! An easy hike on varied hiking trails from Riezlern along the small river Breitach – occasions for resting and picnicking included.

    All around us water is running down the rocks, gurgles in tiny rivers across the hiking trail into the Breitach. It seems as if one could watch the Breitach unify with its many small and larger side creeks in order to plummet through the gorge some meters further down. Occasionally you can walk down from the trail to the river’s gravel bed, take a sip of cool water, build small cairns out of the pebble stones or stretch your feet into the clear water. Highly recommended: a visit to the gorge “Breitachklamm”. Be a testimony of how the once calm water plummets down untamedly between narrow cliffs. 

    Bring a picnic and have a seat a one of the (gravel)benches by the riverside!

    The Walserbus is a convenient way to reach your starting point. Line 1 takes you to the village Riezlern. For this tour you need to get off at the bus stop “Riezlern Post”. Way back: bus line 1 from “Walserschanz”.

    >>> Timetable Walserbus


    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.
