There are numerous opportunities to stop for refreshments along the way, such as at the Sportheim Böck on the Alpsitz or the Alpe Stubental in Jungholz (Österreich). On the hike, you can reach the next summit with mostly only small detours. So you can enjoy the view from the Kappelkamp (1482m), the Alpspitz (1575m), the Edelsberg (1630m) and, with only a small diversions, the Grad (1338m) into the foothills of the Alps. Here you can also replace the ascent to the Alpspitz with a train ride. For prices see: https://www.alpspitzbahn.de/preise.html .
Good footwear. The paths are mostly paths, gravel paths or alpine paths. For short periods, however, there are nature trails or somewhat rocky terrain on the ascent to the summit. It is therefore better to wear hiking shoes instead of sports shoes;
First the ascent is a little steeper, until you can make a short detour to the east to the Kappelköpfl. Then continue directly to the Alpspitz summit (1575m). Here you can also stop off at the Sportheim Böck or the Panoramahütte Alpspitz. However, it is very touristy here, there is also a children's playground and viewing spots. Continue on less frequented paths to the Edelsberg summit, from where you have a very nice view of the Alpine foothills. The trail then descends again to Jungholz (Austria). On the pleasant Rückweg you can stop at the Alpe Stubental and take a short break. The trail then continues slightly downhill and uphill until you reach the starting point around the mountain;
