5 hikes for a relaxed start in spring
In the valley, green meadows and a variety of flowers await while mountains still seem a bit wintry. A very special time in the spring before the hiking summer fully arrives in Kleinwalsertal. As our bones are a little rusty and we want to prepare for hiking adventures and mountain tops, we have put together the best routes for the first spring tours.
The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the best is - the holiday in Kleinwalsertal is coming up! But after the winter break and all thatt sitting in home office, are your bones tired and rusty? We have the perfect hikes to get your legs moving again and to start your holiday relaxed. Just don't overdo it for a start ...
After a break in the sun and a view of the Kleiner Widderstein, the Bärenkopf and the Walmedingerhorn, we continue walking towards Bernhard's Gemstelhütte to marvel at the valley’s other side’s panorama - and of course to enjoy the delicious ‘Kaiserschmarrn’! Well saturated, you walk back to Mittelberg slowly and comfortably.
On the way back,at the fork below the hut, choose the slightly shadier panorama path back to Baad. Halfway there, the path leads you to the second gourmet hut: the Alpe Widderstein. Fresh chocolate milk and homemade cakes invite you to chat with the hostess Tini in a quiet and pleasant atmosphere. If you have some time, she will tell you more about the philosophy of the Alp and where the fresh products come from.
After a nice chat, the hiking trail continues back to Baad - you have reached your destination and your legs are now ready for the next level of difficulty. 😊
Afterwards you either turn around or hike a little further to the Fluchtalpe. The Wildenbach accompanies you on your way there. A little further behind the alp you will reach a magical waterfall at the end of the valley! You have to let that view sink in first? The Fluchtalpe is a wonderful place to linger and watch the cows graze. On your way back you turn left at the fork below the Inner Wiesalpe and take the path towards Schwendlestraße past the Untere Wiesalp with a wonderful view of Mittelberg.
After these leisurely hikes, our joints and muscles are well prepared for exploring the Walser mountains! Whether on a guided tour or on your own: it is important to find your own pace and to start the first few days slowly. After all, we don't want to overstrain our legs right away!
