The alpine pasture is situated in a magnificent mountain basin. Here you are undisturbed and can enjoy the peace and quiet and get your money's worth in sports. The path is well developed and pleasantly steep to hike. After a hearty stop, body and soul are in harmony.

From the parking lot west in Tannheim we start west on the hiking trail towards Älpele/Höfersee. Passing the district Neu-Kienzen we reach a crossroads and follow the signs towards Älpele. Here the hiking trail leads comfortably through the forest until after some time we reach the alpine pasture Älpele.

Try the delicious alpine bread time.
