Alm hike in Breitenbach
Varied route past four Alms (high pasture huts)
The tour starts in Breitenbach, Schnönau. Turn right after the tennis courts and follow the steep but easy route towards the Ruhreralm (approx. one hour), on to the Aschakreuz 1.458 m (approx. one hour from the Ruhreralm) and the Aschaalm. Backtrack a short part of the path and continue through alpine pastures towards the Nachberg Hochleger. From there walk downhill to Nachberg Niederleger; an in parts quite steep, but not dangerous route leads downhill to Schönau. The walk along the road from Schönau back to where one started takes approx. 1/4 hour.
- Take sufficient water and food with you, there is nowhere to get something to eat and drink along the route
- Plan a visit to the new wooden chapel between the Nachberg Almen and Schönau. The chapel was errected by the Landjugend (rural youth association) Breitenbach
Surefootedness required, especially on the descent.
