Our hike takes us from Jungholz in Tirol to the 1695 m high Wertacher Hörnle in the Allgaeu Alps. Here we hike mostly on narrow meadow paths and groomed hiking trails with easy to medium ascent to the summit. On the way we enjoy the beautiful views to the Upper and Eastern Allgaeu alps.

The starting point is the Jungholz Church. From there we walk towards the ski lifts and turn left at the ski lift garage towards the Vorderen Sorgalpe. After about 20 minutes we walk past the Sorg Alpe towards the main road. After a short crossing of the street, we come to the direct route to the Wertacher Hörnle. Always following the signs and the hiking trail, we reach the summit of the Wertacher Hörnle and thus the end point of the tour.
