The German word from the Middle Ages has become the expression of an attitude to life: Wanderlust. It stands for a mixture of wanderlust and the spirit of discovery, but also for the need to immerse yourself in nature and recalibrate your inner compass. If wanderlust leads you to Kleinwalsertal, it will show you a variety of ways to recharge your batteries.

Kleinwalsertal lies on the northern edge of the Alps in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg. Even though it is part of Austria, there is only one road to Kleinwalsertal, via the neighboring Bavarian town of Oberstdorf. Not only is it easy to reach by car without a toll sticker, but you can also take the Walser bus directly from Oberstdorf to the high mountain valley.

In Kleinwalsertal, it is possible to find your inner balance while moving individually and on a variety of paths. While some have discovered trail running for themselves, for others it is a sporty mountain hike or climbing tour, and for many it is wanderlust in the truest sense of the word. The backdrop for an unforgettable nature experience are numerous peaks and a network of 185 km of natural, marked trails. They are spread over three altitudes between 1,000 and 2,500 m and lead through a varied landscape of forests, streams and species-rich alpine meadows. Here you will find a variety that will delight connoisseurs as well as sporty mountaineers, via ferrata fans and families.

But nature is much more than just a backdrop for unforgettable mountain experiences. With the initiative “Experience Nature Consciously”, the Kleinwalsertal is focusing on the importance of nature for people and is setting the course for a nature-compatible future of tourism. You can learn more about the project and especially about the sensitive balance of the natural and cultural landscape as well as the biodiversity in the Kleinwalsertal on one of the guided tours that can be booked at
