One of the most beautiful and least dangerous mountain hiking areas of the Allgäu
The Horngrat mountain station (1540m) opens up one of the most beautiful and least dangerous mountain hiking areas of the Allgäu:
Easy, enjoyable hiking for young and old on the high paths with a wonderful background in the protected lanscape area of the Hörner Group with its manifold
alpine flora. Comfortable mountain guest houses and Alps offering victuals invite you to have a meal.
