This tour up to the Riedberger Horn (1787 m) is an Allgäu ski tour classic and offers a magnificent all-round view due to its position as the highest peak of the Allgäu Flysch mountains.

This ski tour to the Riedberger Horn from Grasgehren is an unstrenuous pleasure tour that is also suitable for beginners. The ascent and descent routes are south-facing, the descent allows for variations, in some circumstances some sections are then moderately steep. The entire tour takes place on mostly gently sloping slopes. Orientation is easy. If you want, you can shorten the already short ascent by a few metres in altitude and buy a single ticket at the Grasgehren lift. In good conditions, you can see ski mountaineers who visit the summit several times in one day. In Grasgehren we also have the opportunity to take a retreat

Turn-by-turn directions

From the car park, we climb along the edge of the ski slope of the Grasgehren lift to the mountain station. The wide south ridge of the Riedbergerhorn literally offers us the perfect opportunity to ascend. We follow the ridge to the summit cross.

For those who do not trust the conditions, we return to the car park along the ascent route. Alternatively, we can descend via the southern flank of the Riedberger Horn (moderately steep to steep).
