Today we decided to do a hike that is not too difficult because our muscles were still aching from yesterday. So we walked from Oberstdorf to Gerstruben and from there we continued to the Dietersbachalp. Now the ascent to the Älpelesattel starts. It is about 1780 m high. To reach this point we had to walk through lots of grass, scrubs and trees. It was not so nice, because it was really hot today and there was almost no fresh air between all the plants. Having reached the highest point we took a long break and enjoyed the view to the famous summit of the Höfats. We also saw some people climbing up there! Because of the steep grass paths it is dangerous to go up there. From the Älpelesattel we go back down to the Käseralpe. There we enjoy a drink before continuing to the Oytalhaus. From here we take the scooter back to Oberstdorf which is a lot of fun. All in all a path with beautiful views, but I would prefer to walk it in the autumn when the plants are not so big anymore.
