The small side-valley municipality of Hinterhornbach lies at an altitude of 1,101m, directly at the foot of the Hochvogel mountain (2,594m), one of the most popular summits of the Allgäu and Lechtal Alps.
In former times the municipality was an insider tip among smugglers. There it was possible to cross the border to Germany fast and unseen and smuggle useful stuff.
Today these routes are signposted and have been developed as hiking trails. Since the road stops in the village of Hinterhornbach with its 92 souls, through traffic and noise are unheard of.
If you are looking for peace and relaxation, this is the place to go to!
