Short description

A pleasant walk into the Gemsteltal, a side valley of the Kleinwalsertal. Plenty of resting points and refreshments stops along the way and in the midst of the mountains of Elfer, Zwölfer and Small Widderstein.

Description

Even on hot days, this hike is a refreshment! For a while, we leisurely walk along the rushing Breitach and the shady banks of Gemstelbach. Then the louder ringing of the cow bells tells us: The pleasure hut Schönebodenalpe is not far away anymore. In Naturalpe's natural fridge refreshing drinks are waiting for thirsty hikers. From the spacious sun terrace, we can enjoy the panorama of the Kleiner Widderstein, the Bärenkopf and the Walmendingerhorn. If you prefer to overlook the valley from the other side, walk another 10 minutes to Bernhard's Gemstelhütte or a little further into the back Gemstelhütte. Here you have the mountain scenery of Zwölfer, Elfer and Geißhorn in view. The Gemstelbach right hand, it goes back comfortably to Mittelberg.
