Description:
From Tannheim via the Rossalpe to the beautiful plateau of the Feldalpe. Depending on your wishes, you could either take the short descent to the Älpele or follow the route towards Willersalpe.

The Willersalpe lies in the midst of sunny meadows where cows and young cattle graze.



Directions:
From the west car park in Tannheim, the route heads south-east, past the Sägerklause tennis court towards the grotto. Now follow the signs and continue in the direction of Roßalpe. From the lower Roßalpe the path becomes a bit more demanding. Over the saddle between Schnurschrofen and Geißhorn, the area of the Feldalpe, we reach the Älpele, which invites you to take a break. A short stretch the same way back again, at the fork in the path we turn right and uphill towards Zirleseck. At the top, we can already see the Willersalpe. From the Willersalpe we follow the "Jubiläumsweg" to the Schafwanne. Below the Geißeck, steadily ascending, we reach the summit of the Geißhorn. The descent is northwards, towards Obere Roßalpe and further on to the Vilsalpsee. Those who no longer want to make the last stretch on foot to Tannheim can take the carriage, the bus or the Alpenexpress here. 

Tip:
Very nice tour with many viewpoints.

Safety guidelines:
It should be noted that in mountaineering there is an increased risk of accidents and injuries. Despite careful route planning, a basic risk always remains. Tour preparation through endurance sports, appropriate technical training and further education as well as personal prudence reduces the danger of accidents and risks. However, please never forget that the weather in the mountains can change very quickly. Stay on the marked hiking trails.

Equipment:
The personal mountaineering equipment must be safe and serviceable and meet the relevant technical standards. Every hiker is recommended to obtain information about the planned tours from specialist alpine literature or on site.
