Quality of experience: ******
- Family friendly
The hike on and up the Neunerköpfle in Tannheim is suitable for families and starts at the top station of the cable car. The winter hiking trail is cleared daily and leads to the summit of Neunerköpfle. There is also the largest summit book of the Alps (2 pages á 3x 2,3m) in which you can also sign in. The marvellous view over the whole Tannheimer Tal remains also on the approx. 2.2 km long new hiking trail at almost 1900 metres above sea level
From the top station of the 8-person Neunerköpfle gondola lift in Tannheim, the path first leads up a short distance at the edge of the ski slope. The path continues to the right to the paraglider launch site. It is an unforgettable experience to watch the pilots at the start. Now the path goes slightly downhill. In front of us an impressive winter landscape with the snow-covered peaks of the Geißhorn, Rauhorn and Kugelhorn. On the left below us, the village of Tannheim is idyllically situated. After a short ascent we reach a saddle. To the left we see the Usseralpe and to the right below the Strindenalpe. The turning point of the winter hiking trail is now reached. On the higher return path we can already see the summit of Neunerköpfles in front of us. Shortly below the summit is also the largest summit book of the Alps, which measures 3 metres in height and 2 pages, each 2.3 metres wide. Beside the overwhelming view over the whole valley, an almost boundless far view, also the summit cross with a wooden body is especially worth seeing. Bergdohlen above us and the skiers on the slopes below us make your heart beat a little faster. The descent to the top station is on the flank of the Neunerköpfles, partly with railings on the valley side, and gives us another chance to see the Tannheimer Tal from above. Should we get hungry or thirsty before the descent with the gondola, a refreshment at this altitude is also provided.
A hike at this altitude is interesting and very scenic.
The theme path is relatively easy to walk and, where necessary, well secured. The whole path is covered with gravel, in steeper passages caution is advised. In winter the path is cleared of snow and also split, but good footwear is urgently required. Always walk the path with the necessary caution.
Good footwear is essential as the ground is hard snow.
