We always walk on signposted hiking trails from Jungholz to Pfronten to the Bärenmoosalpe. On the way there we have great views of the purest nature of the Allgäu and Tyrol. Arriving at the destination, the view widens into the Pfronten landscape and we can reflect on the easy and only medium-length tour and review it.

The starting point of the hiking tour is the car parking lot  in the centre of Jungholz. From there we walk in the direction of Langenschwand, past the Kamelstüble towards the Pfronten turn-off, always signposted. Passing the Scheidbach alpine pasture and continuing along the Vils (river), we cross the river after a while in the direction of the Östallgäuer Höhenweg. Always signposted, we reach Ressermändleskopf. From there we branch off shortly before in the direction of Bärenmoosalpe. Immediately afterwards we reach our destination.
