Wandertrilogie Allgäu – The Wasserläufer (Water Seekers) Route
Lakes, rivers, gorges and plunging waterfalls await walkers in the foothills of the Alps on the Wasserläufer Route of the Wandertrilogie Allgäu.
Nature has laid a wonderful foundation for adventure hiking on the Wasserläufer Route. Along this watery trail, glaciers bear witness to the ice age. They gave rise to rivers, streams, lakes, moraines and giant boulders. Whether you prefer standing water, moving rivers or marshes, the Wasserläufer Route is a treasure trove for this particular element.
As well as learning about the history of the water, walkers explore the events and traditions that have left their mark on the towns along the Wasserläufer Route. In Lindenberg, for example, they can find out about the town’s hatmakers while in Burgberg they can discover what lies at the core of Grünten Mountain, the guardian of the Allgäu. Ore has long been mined there, as demonstrated in the town’s museum and exhibition mine.
Kings too used to relish the beauty of the Allgäu foothills and built their castles and fortresses in this water-rich land. Neuschwanstein Castle is just one of the many royal castles that continue to amaze visitors from around the world.
Health-conscious tourists will find plenty on offer in Oberstaufen. The Schroth cure has been practised in this climatic spa for over 60 years.
The Wasserläufer Route offers the perfect walking adventure for all tastes.
