Finally I had a week of vacation. A hiking week at the border of Germany and Austria: Allgäu and Kleinwalsertal. Although it’s at the beginning of the Alps, the scenery was already very impressive: from the Nebelhorn you have an impressive view on 400 summits (according to the local marketing, I didn’t recount them…). And that Nebelhorn, it’s easy to conquer it: by cable car. :-)  Starting from Oberstdorf we made several hikes in the neighbourhood of the Nebelhorn. On two occasions I pressed the ‘pauze button’: one time on a ‘via ferrata’ (a secured pathway) next to a chasm. And another passage near a top, I had seen that another group of hikers had troubles passing there, a few minutes later our guide told me I was right and the group returned to choose another path.

By the end of the week the weather changed, which was a nice occasion to visit the Breitachklamm: a long ravine, with an impressive volume of water passing it.

  1. No Frank, no wing suits, only ‘ordinary’ paragliders jumping off the mountainsides. That’s already crazy enough for me 🙂
