Hiking tips to the Rohrkopfhütte, our mountain cabin in Allgäu

If you like to walk uphill step by step - the "Schutzengelweg", or guardian angel trial, leads you through the blosoming alpine meadows to the Rohrkopf cabin. Would you rather float upwards? Then you'll love the Tegelbergbahn lift. 

Descent from the mountain station to the Rohrkopfhütte

Walking time:                                    approx. 45-60 min.
Start:                                               Tegelberghaus
Difference in altitude:                         approx. 560 m

The cable car takes you up to the top station. There is a great vantage point, in summer you can watch the paragliders take off. From the top station turn right immediately. After about 5 minutes you will reach a small ridge. From here the path zigzags down into a larger slope in 5 minutes, then turns right into Grüble. At the lower end of the Grüble, cross half left and walk down into the alpine pastures of the Ilgemösle. Then you come to the Rohrkopf cabin, which you can already see from a distance.


From the valley station via the "Schutzengelweg" 

Walking time:                                  approx. 1 hour.
Start:                                             Talstation
Difference in Altitude:                      approx. 500 m


You start at the valley station of the Tegelberg (parking available for a fee). The Schutzengelweg begins to the left of the summer toboggan run. In the beginning it goes through a forest area. On the way to the hut you will pass great vantage points with views of the Alpine foothills. The trail is very interesting and informative thanks to various information boards. The Romans and the royal family play just as important a role as the economic conditions in earlier times. At the Rohrkopf hut you can recover from the ascent and reward yourself with a cool beer, a hearty snack and a great view!

From the Pöllat gorge over the Maria bridge to the Tegelberg Mountain to the Rohrkopfhütte

Walking time:                              approx. 4 hours
Start:                                         Gipsmühle
Difference in altitude:                  approx. 900 m

The entrance to the Pöllat Gorge is located by the Gipsmühle mill. Take the iron footbridges and well-developed paths, some with stone steps, along the rushing waterfalls up to the Maria bridge. The bridge is known for its great views of the Neuschwanstein Castle. A small path winds its way up in narrow serpentines towards the mountain station. The path then changes to the south side of the mountain flank and back again. Later it meets the yellow wall-climb, and then leads to the last 100 meters of altitude on the course of the ski slope in the direction of Grüble. From there, take the new path on the right above the main run in serpentines to the Rohrkopfhütte.

Good footwear and good physical condition are required!
