Short description

Riezlern Schwende (1070m) – Border at Hörnle pass

Description

Throughout centuries, the trail over the just 1283m high Hörnle pass used to be the main route from the Kleinwalsertal to Bregenz. As it was in desolate condition between Sibratsgfäll and Hittisau for most of the time, people preferred to take a detour. Today’s winter hiking trail to “Hörele”, as the local Walser have nicknamed the pass, is an easy and much-frequented leisurely walk.
