We hike on this moderate tour from Bühl through the little village Zaumberg to the Siedelalpe. The alpine hut is situated on a mountain chain, northern of lake Alpsee. From the sunny terrace we enjoy a hearty snack and a beautiful view of the mountains Mittag and Gschwender Horn and moreover the peaks of the Nagelfluhkette and the Grünten in the back. Located in the southeast are the quaint valley Illertal and the Allgäuer Hochalpen. Young hikers enjoy to play around the alp and at the playing ground.

Author’s recommendation

 We enjoy the best view from the small hill between the Siedelalpe and the Jungalpe.

Turn-by-turn directions

We start the tour at Alpsee Camping in the village Bühl, first we turn left towards the lakeside. There we turn right and follow the boardwalk until we reach a small subway. We cross it and follow a paved road for a few meters towards the left and turn right behind the houses onto a gravel path.

On this path we climb a few meters uphill, but a beautiful view of lake Alpsee rewards us. After a switchback we pass a farmhouse and reach the village Zaumberg soon. From a paved road through the village we turn left and then right onto a hiking way, which leads us through small forests and across open fields. For a short period we follow a paved road until we reach the way to the Siedelalpe.

After a well deserved break we should use the possibility to climb up the Aussichtsberg (viewing hill). We continue towards east until we reach a signpost, where we turn left. On a path through the fields we climb down toward lake Alpsee. We pass the Alpe Schönesreuth and reach the paved road next to the lake through a small ravine. We follow this road towards the left until the viller Alpseewies, where we cross the railroad tracks and  walk back to Bühl alongside the lake.
