Tegelberg cable car station

Turn-by-turn directions

If you don't have too much time or only want to hike a short distance from the Tegelbergbahn mountain station, this is the right place for you. After you have taken to the Tegelberg with the cable car, the path leads eastwards up towards Branderschrofen, the actual summit of the Tegelberg. After about 5 minutes you reach the first vantage point, in the north you can see the Auerberg near Stötten on the horizon. Continue on to the lookout pulpit, which faces west and presents you with some summit names of the Tannheimer and Allgäuer mountains. From here it's a few minutes to the Branderschrofenschulter, from which the 360-degree view will give you a lasting experience. With two Viscope telescopes, you can take a closer look at the surrounding mountains. Afterwards, hike back to the mountain station via the path, which branches off to the left just above the Branderschrofenschulter. Or you can set off on foot in the direction of the valley.
