Alpine crossing on E5 - From Oberstdorf to Meran

For many hikers, an alpine crossing is a long-cherished dream. Not only the classic long-distance trail from Munich to Venice but also the route E5 leads from valley to valley and from peak to peak. Within 6 days, the crossing leads alongside the most famous and most popular section of the trail from Oberstdorf to Meran.

In the first 4 days, we follow the "classic" E5, then we continue on an alternate route to Meran. We cross three countries within six days whereby the alpine world around us changes within hours. Altogether, we master 4950 m in altitude upwards and 6470 m descent and walk 106 km.

There are lots of possibilites for sleeping over and getting food supplies along the way. The accommodations can be chosen between huts and hotels. According to your own convenience you decide for a more rustic or a more comfort place. There are many possibilities to get tasty meals at the huts. If you want to bring your own meals you will find a shop in the valleys every three or four days.
