  • Easy bike tour with refreshment stops on two pleasure cabins

    For this tour, you should definitely visit at least one of the two huts along the way. If you bring a little more time, the inn keeper tell you something about their philosophy of alpine farming: where the fresh products of meat and milk come from, why a close relationship with their producers is important and what the award as an Austrian “pleasure hut” means. And all this with a view of the sensational mountain panorama of the rear Kleinwalsertal.

    Take binoculars and look for chamois and ibexes on the rocks!

  • Directions

    From the parking lot in Baad, it goes over the bridge following the Bärguntbach into Bärgunttal. After a short while we turn left; in front of us lies the rock massif of the Bärenkopf. Soon the Widdersteinalpe is reached, on which one can treat oneself a first break. The dirt road leads along dense forest slopes to the exposed Bärgunthütte, the second rest stop, which offers homemade and regional food. From here on the left hand side of the Bärguntbachs back to Baad.

    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”.

    Most arrival routes from Germany meet in Ulm and continue on the A7. At the motorway junction Allgäu over the section of the A980 to the junction Waltenhofen and on the four-lane B19 via Sonthofen and Oberstdorf into Kleinwalsertal. From Austria (Vorarlberg) and Switzerland you can reach the Kleinwalsertal via the Bregenzerwald (Hittisau) – Riedbergpass – Fischen – Oberstdorf. Coming from Tyrol, the fastest way is via the A7 to Kempten and then on the B19 towards Oberstdorf. You do not need a motorway vignette to drive to the valley.
