From Jungholz in the direction of Pfronten, we enjoy great landscapes, mountains and vantage points. Everyone becomes aware of the nature, water, stone and meadows in the Tyrol and Allgäu that these surroundings hold. Along the well signposted and developed paths we progress to the first partial destination, the Kappeler Alpe. After a short stop, we pass through villages like Kappel and Pfroten, which are characterised by their tradition. Later, along the river Vils, we walk again towards Jungholz. Arriving at the final destination, we reflect on our unique impressions and enjoy this great experience.

Destination

Jungholz Church

Turn-by-turn directions

From Jungholz church, we walk uphill towards Alpe Stubental, always on the signposted path. After about 2.5 kilometres, just before Alpe Stubental, we turn off in the direction of Pfronten. Here, too, we stick to the well-signposted paths. We stay on the signposted path throughout and pass the Edelsberg to reach the Ostallgäuer Höhenweg. Pass the Lachner Hütte and walk to the Kappeler Alpe (signposted). After a short refreshment stop, we continue towards the centre of Pfronten - Kappel. We also walk to the Allgäu Stone Experience World to the Hay Museum. From there we walk on to the Halden district. Continue in the direction of Vilsweg and along the Vils until you reach the Vilstalsäge (refreshment stop). From there we continue on the well-signposted paths in the direction of Jungholz. After a hike of almost seven hours, we reach the Jungholz district of Langenschwand again. Another kilometre further on is the end point of the tour, the church in Jungholz.
