(Advertising) Hiking in the Kleinwalsertal has a long tradition, but it was already in the blood of the primal Walser. Around the year 1000, the Alemanni immigrated to Valais. From there, shepherds and farmers populate the Alps to the south and east - the Valais became Walser.
With the beginning of the tourist development of the Austrian Alps, it went uphill for the relatively secluded valley. Today, the Kleinwalsertal is among the top three most popular destinations in Austria.
Sounding mountain names such as the Hohe Ifen, the Kanzelwand, the Großer Widderstein, in summer attract hikers, climbers and trail runners to the more than 2000 meters high peaks that line the valley. For winter sports, the valley is well developed with various lifts and invites you to skiing, snowboarding and ski touring.

Continue over the Kuhgerenspitze or Hammerspitze to the Kuhgerensattel and continue through the large hollow of the upper Zweienalpe to the summit.
