Jöchelspitze Botanical Nature Trail

The Jöchlspitze Botanical Trail is located between the Lechtal and Allgäu Alps and has a geologically perfect location.

The fantastic alpine florae and the glorious panoramic view are a special experience for every hiker. Signposts with descriptions of alpine flowers accompany you all along the trail. You will also get to know plenty of medicinal herbs on your tour. A guided tour of the popular nature trail helps to spot the colourful variety of tender plants and hidden animals.

Starting from the Jöchelspitzbahn mountain station to the Alpenrosensteig path and past the Lachenkopf on the southern-flank of the Mute to the Bernhardseck-Hütte – back along the panorama trail – past the Mute (2,187m), the Rothorn-Joch to the Jöchelspitze summit (2,266m) – back to the mountain station.
