This Jungholzer hiking/walking route offers families and couples a unique and romantic view of the idyll of Jungholz. The incredible nature, but also the culture of this destination will leave a lasting impression. The view, but also the minimum level of difficulty, play an important role!

A wonderful short and easy tour with a great view of the local mountain and the Allgaeu Alps, starting from the free and spacious car park in the Langenschwand district. The trail starts right in front of the Waldhorn Hotel (about 300 meters from the parking lot) and ends above the village in a 3.5 kilometer long and optimally developed hiking trail. After around 700 meters you land at the Jungholz treading pool with a refreshing drinking water fountain to enjoy the wonderful view of the Sorgschrofen local mountain. A few hundred meters further there is a letter (part of the letter path in Jungholz) which aims directly at the church of the village and emphasizes the idyll of the place. After further sights, such as faces carved in tree trunks, you end up at the most impressive place of this tour. The artificial snow-making lake with a wonderful and romantic view of the far-reaching Allgäu Alps is a relaxation point to dream about. The further tour ends in the village with a special church, which is very old-fashioned but very well cared for. The then signposted forest path with its pure nature reflects this excursion. Back at the Langenschwander car park, the Kamelstüble restaurant and cafe offers a calm and relaxed end to the short trip, where small but fine delicacies and drinks can also be purchased.

Author’s recommendation

Take a short detour along the forest path to the Schrofenhütte restaurant and enjoy a coffee on the beautiful outdoor terrace with a view of the Sorgschrofen local mountain!

Turn-by-turn directions

The start and end point is the free Langenschwander car parking slot,  which is about 1000 meters above the church in the Langenschwand district. From there you have to walk about 300 meters to the Hotel Waldhorn on a street. From this point the high altitude circular route begins. For almost 3.5 kilometers it flows directly into the Jungholz district. From there you walk again on an asphalt road and turn left at the next intersection into the town center. After about another 500 meters there is a signpost directly at the church. Here you should turn onto the forest path. This ends after another 1.1 kilometers and leads directly to the Langenschwander parking lot.

Questions and answers

Question from Petra Schreiber · July 23, 2020 · Community
Wir sind mit Rollstuhl unterwegs, der nicht gut auf Schotterwegen fährt. Zur Wegbeschaffenheit wurden keine Angaben gemacht. Ist der Boden fest? Holperig?

Answered by Lukas Jörg · July 24, 2020 · Community
Der Boden ist Relativ Holperig und besteht teilweise aus losem Schotter. Außerdem ist der Weg teilweise sehr steil und daher glaube ich das er für einen Rollstuhl leider eher ungeeignet ist. mfg Lukas

Eine schöne kennen-lern Runde von Jungholz. Lässt sich sehr gut mit Kinderwaagen laufen. Eine nette Runde auch bei Regenwetter, da der Weg sehr gut bei Regen zu laufen ist. Ich plane immer 1,5 Stunden Laufzeit ein. Dann kann ich gemütlich die Aussicht auf den Ort genießen und auf meinem Lieblingsbankerl eine Rast einlegen.
