The west-Allgäuer waterway
Enchanted and dreamy - follow the waterway by foot.
"Calm and idyllic ponds, deep and concealed fountains, historic mills, high weirs and overgrown trenches, deep canals and small trickles, noisy streams and roaring waterfalls.
Bathing with children in the ponds, building ships out of sticks and dams from rocks. Hiking on lonely paths, from the fountain to the ravine, through dark and colorful woods in the open green. Or just sitting at the water finding peace" (Text source: homepage westallgäu.de)
The west-Allgäuer Käsestraße
The west-Allgäuer Käsestraße is an insider's tip for an aficionado: several Alpine dairies, inns and direct farms have combined with a brewery and distillery for a 46 kilometer long experience, that shows the culinary west-Allgäu from its finest side.
The west-Allgäuer Käsestraße proceeds apart from the bulk of the traffic of the southern west-Allgäu until Bad Wurzach in the north, the city on the transition to Oberschwaben. Experience on bike or foot how the Allgäuer Emmentaler or Allgäuer Bergkäse is traditionally created. Cozy restraurants invite you to stay for a snack. In nearly every Alpine dairy you have the opportunity to directly see the creation of the cheese. Or do you happen to know how the holes are created?
Kneipp viewpoints, as well as the most beautiful view of west-Allgäu at Rodersbühl, allow the hiker to not only see the mountain panorama of the Allgäuer- and Austrian Alpines but also to have an astonishing view over the Bodensee up until the Appenzellerland over the southern Black Forest and the Württembergian surroundings.
On the tables collected by the fist chairman Erwin Obenaus hikers will find jokes, quotes and anecdotes on their paths. Additionally, there are tips, hints and recommendations of pastor Kneipp for a healthy way of living.
In ancient tiems the people traveled from fountain to fountain. They were searcing for themselves and their herds pasture- and resting places. Later, chapels were created at the surrounding fountains. That way they were able to travel from fountain to fountain and chapel to chapel. The healthy climate health resort Scheidegg has 13 chapels withing its environment, including the ecumenical St.-Hubertus-chapel (picture). Every of these chapels is a special treasure. All chapels are combined with the katholic parish church St. Gallus, the protestant church of the resurrection and the Kreuzberg with its famous high paths as well as the small and big ecumenical chapel path. These are paths for body and soul.
