Beautiful tour over the ridge trail of the Nagelfluhkette and descent over alpine meadows

This hike takes us along the popular ridge trail of the Allgäu Nagelfluhkette. It is easy to reach with the Hochgratbahn. During the ascent with the mountain railroad, you can have a good look at the Nagelfluhkette, which we want to walk right away. From the ridge trail, which leads us from the mountain station of the Hochgratbahn over Seelekopf, Hohenfluhalpkopf and Eineguntkopf, there is then a wonderful panoramic view. On one side we look towards Steibis and Oberstaufen and on the other side down into the Leckner Valley and thus to Austria. Between Hohenfluhalpkopf and Eineguntkopf we reach the national border, which lies on the ridge path heading down to our descent. On the way down we pass some nice places to stop for refreshments, where you can end the hiking day wonderfully refreshed.

Hallo Meike, natürlich kann man auch anders herum gehen. Zur Ermittling der Dauer nutzt du ab besten den Tourenplaner:

Hallo, wir sind zwar keine Hundebesitzer aber ich denke dass man an zwei bis drei Stellen den Hund tragen muss.

Entspannte Tour mit wenig Höhenmetern bergauf und tollen Ausblicken. Hat uns sehr gut gefallen.

Schöne Wanderung mit viel Aussicht! ACHTUNG!!! Die Anfahrt ist falsch gesetzt - man wird auf den Gipfel geleitet und nicht an die Talstation. Am Anfang ist der Weg anspruchsvoller und man muss an einigen Stellen etwas vorsichtig sein. Mit Kindern ggf schwierig zu bewältigen (da kommt es darauf an wie geübt man ist) Der Abstieg ist abwechslungsreich und auch nicht zu steil.
