When you think the road can’t possibly get any narrower, it still goes on. The approach to the Skywalk Scheidegg leads from the centre of the village through the smallest villages and settlements until you finally arrive. Arrived at perhaps the biggest attraction in the area. Further information on the Skywalk can be found in a separate article, where we discuss how to get there and how to park on site.
Getting to the Skywalk Scheidegg by car
If you are travelling to Scheidegg by car, take the Sigmarszell/Scheidegg exit from the A96 motorway in Sigmarszell and follow the signs to Scheidegg. A few metres of altitude have to be climbed through serpentines. In Scheidegg, take the first exit at the roundabout and follow the signs to “skywalk Allgäu”.
Coming from Austria, you can drive on country roads to Scheidegg and the district of Oberschwenden. For example, directly from Bregenz’s local mountain Pfänder via Möggers.
Parking at the skywalk allgäu
Parking around the skywalk is possible in the public designated car parks. A day ticket for this costs 4 euros per vehicle and can be bought at a machine on site. Important, you will need (preferably suitable) small change for the parking ticket machine. From this car park it is a 15-minute walk to the entrance of the park. However, the path is somewhat uneven, so people in wheelchairs and with prams are advised to use the asphalted path behind the public toilets on the hospital grounds. However, for wheelchair users as well as people with walking difficulties, there is a limited number of parking spaces directly at the entrance to skywalk Allgäu in Scheidegg. The passage for this separate driveway to the entrance area leads from the gate near the clinic grounds.
Arrival by public transport – bus and train – to Scheidegg
Scheidegg itself does not have a train station, but it is possible to travel to the clinic by bus. To do this, you must first travel to Lindau on Lake Constance. Direct connections to the cities of Bregenz, Feldkirch, Zurich, Munich, Augsburg, Innsbruck as well as Friedrichshafen, Ravensburg and Ulm and Stuttgart make it possible to travel from all possible directions.
From Lindau, you have to change trains once, in Lindau Buttlerhügel (near the new train station in Reutin, also possible on foot, then only change trains once), and then get off at the stop “Möggers Dorfplatz”. It is then a twenty-minute walk to the nature experience park in the southern Allgäu. From Bregenz you also have to change buses once, also to the bus stop “Möggers Dorfplatz”. The journey from Lindau takes about 45 minutes, from Bregenz about 35 minutes.
