    This mountain tour takes you to the most significant summit of the lower Bregenzerwald, the Hochhäderich.

    Hochhäderich offers a magnificent view to the north as far as the Allgäu and, to the south, to the Bregenzerwald. You pass large rock faces made up of Nagelfluh rock which are very distinct here. In 2008, 15 towns and villages in the border area of Allgäu and Vorderwald established the “Nagelfluhkette National Park” which covers an area of around 400 km².
