Route description

Start at hotel Bergdorf parking behind the church of Nesselwängle. First walk through the town center and walk uphill in north- east direction. Shortly after exiting Nesselwängle follow the signs to Schneetalalpe. The path only ascends slighty and is easy to hike. At the first two junctions keep right and soon you will reach Schneealpe.


Afterwards take the same way back for a while then go towards to Gimpelhaus.


Keep straight at the first junction but left at the second. Hike underneath the massif Tanneheimer Gruppe and get to Tannheimer Hütte. Now hike shortly uphill until Gimpelhaus.


The descent is easy to manage and leads across constructed stairs and winding roads to the starting point of the tour.
