Rolling hills, mountain lakes and child-friendly themed trails make this region in the eastern Allgäu Alps particularly popular with families. Advanced and expert hikers will also find plenty to explore in the Tannheimer Tal Valley.
While many regions of Tirol are rough, craggy and alpine, the Tannheimer Tal Valley is characterised by a gentler, more rolling landscape. Families will enjoy the many mountain lakes here such as the Visalpsee, situated in a quiet side valley near Tannheim, and the nearby Traualpsee. Both are located within a protected nature reserve. The region also has a number of themed trails providing information on the local flora and fauna, for example the adventure trail on the Neunerköpfle mountain offering fine views of the Haldensee lake. Higher up in the mountains there are plenty more trails, many of which can be accessed quickly and easily using the lifts and cable cars. We recommend the Panorama Trail from Füssener Jöchl to the Bad Kissinger Hütte. The cable car to the starting point leaves from the village of Grän. At the same time, advanced and expert hikers in search of a challenge will find plenty to keep them busy, for example the steep hike via the Tannheimer Hütte to the Nesselwängler Scharte. Up at the top, 2,007 metres above sea level, hikers are rewarded with fantastic views of the Allgäu Alps and the Lechtal Alps.
