Excursion to lake Gaisalpsee and Berggasthof Gaisalpe

38 German and foreign students met on 20 May 2017 for a joint hike from Reichenbach (near Obersdorf) to the lake Gaisalpsee. The trail led across rocky steps, narrow bridges and was partially secured with ropes – a real adventure!

At the beginning of the hike the path led through the Reichenbach canyon. Later the students had to pass several small creeks, which fell down the rocks and crossed the path. Finally, after 2.5 hours, they reached the romantic Gaisalpsee lake and enjoyed an extensive rest on the surrounding meadows. At an altitude of 1.508m, they could enjoy a magnificent view over the entire Illertal valley and many of the highest peaks of the Allgäu Alps. On the way back they stopped at the mountain restaurant Gaisalpe to enjoy a regional dinner and a cool drink before returning to the valley for the bus back home.

The students got impressions of the variety of the Allgäu landscape during this trip and had a lot of fun.
