From Grän, Burgschenke, starting in the direction of Adlerhorst and the Gessenwangalm (no hut). Continue to Füssener Jöchle/Sonnenalm and take the 8-seater gondola lift to Grän.

From the starting point in Grän, the path runs slightly uphill through the forest towards Adlerhorst. Shortly before the mountain hut a wonderful view of the Haldensee awaits us. The trail continues via the Gessenwangalm (no hut!) steadily uphill to the Füssener Jöchle and the Sonnenalm. Directly next to the Sonnenalm is the lift station of the 8-seater gondola, with which we enjoy the descent to Grän.


Fortify yourself with a delicious home-style meal or a piece of cake and a cup of coffee either on the terrace of the Adlerhorst mountain hut - with a magnificent view of the Haldensee, or the Sonnenalm mountain restaurant.

If you would like to make another detour from the mountain station of the Füssener Jöchles to the "Kuckst Du - Sonnenpanoramahut", you can easily reach it on our geological trail in the direction of Gamskopf. On the brim of the hat up to 18 persons can take a seat and enjoy the beautiful panoramic view of the Tannheimer Tal and the Allgäu Alps. The hat is available to our guests in summer as well as in winter!


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.

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.
