Beautiful hike through the nature and landscape of Tyrol. After about 30 minutes, we cross the border from Tyrol into Allgäu. After about 35 minutes we arrive at Sorg Alpe 1, our first stop in a rustic but great alpine pasture. After about another 15 minutes, we walk past Sorg Alpe 2. Here, too, there is a place to stop for refreshments, with good food and drinks. To complete the circular route, we walk again, along well-signposted paths,   in the direction of Jungholz. After about 35-40 minutes we arrive at the starting point, the church "Mariä Namen" in Jungholz.

A medium hike lies behind us and we were able to enjoy the uniqueness of the surroundings, nature and culture.

Wir haben die Tour im Winter gemacht, durch den Neuschnee der Nacht. Tolle Blicke im Tal, abwechslungsreich. Sehr gut beschildert, befestigte Wege.
