What time of year did you do this trek from Bolzano to Oberstdorf, where you met lots of German groups?
I am thinking of doing this trek in late summer 2016, over say 8/9 days, starting in Oberstdorf.
Has anyone else done this trek?

Just noticed this. Sue and I did the walk in reverse in 2012. I wrote about it here:
(No index to the postings I'm afraid - I must get round to that!)
It was a brilliant walk, but if doing it again I'd devise an alternative route between Bolzano and Oberstdorf as that was crowded with German guided groups.

If you decide to walk this route in future, I can recommend the Ramblers Worldwide Holidays "Across the Alps" walk over two weeks from Oberstdorf to Mals in the Italian Sud Tirol, which I did a couple of years ago. Through four countries in total with a good variety of excellent scenery. Not too many walkers although a lot of cyclists at times as part is on a mountain bike route.

The format is:- Day 1 walk to a mountain hut and stay for two nights, Day 2 a day walk to a suitable peak or put your feet up and drink coffee and beer, Day 3 walk to a hotel in a valley. This sequence is repeated four times. Ideal for anyone wishing to try hutting for the first time.

Am planning to walk from Oberstdorf to Bolzano over 8/9 days at beginning of July, and wonder if anyone has done this trek, or are interested in doing it?
I would envisage walking circa 8 hours a day.
