The Lechtaler Panormaweg leads from the top station of the Jöchelspitzbahn to Bernhardseck. The ascent to the top station can be done with the gondola cableway or on foot. The difference in altitude between the valley station and the mountain station is 600 metres. From the Jöchelspitzbahn mountain station, the route follows the botany nature trail up to Lachenkopf at an altitude of 1945 m. Nearby is the new mountain hay museum. The Lechtaler Panoramaweg now becomes a little narrower and leads below the Jöchelspitze to the Rothornjoch. Several thousand year old quarrying sites of flint were found in this area in summer 2011. The further path continues below the Rothornspitze to Mutte at an altitude of 2187 m. The highest point of the hike is now over and it goes down again to Bernhardseck. A leisurely hike takes about 2 to 3 hours. Bernhardseck lies at 1812 m and is an alpine village in the Allgäu Alps. In Bernhardseck you have the choice between a descent on a gravel road to Elbigenalp or back on the Lechtaler Panoramaweg to the top station of the Jöchelspitzbahn. The descent to Elbigenalp takes about an hour and a half. The Bernhardseck Hut is open from the beginning of May to the middle of November. The hut is also open in the winter months, but then only accessible from Elbigenalp.
