Take the hiking bus towards Oberlech directly from the hike starting point at the Rüfiplatz. Get off at the last stop "Schlössle".
Follow the road. Soon a paved back road branches off to the right, so you will get to the view point Tannegg incl. barbecue site. From here, a narrow path on your right takes you downhill to the far side of the Tobel River. Now take the wooden bridge to the other side and then ascend steadily to the Gaisbühelalpe.
Across colourful mountain pastures with extensive chive fields, you will ascend leisurely to the Auenfeld saddle. Turn right and follow the hiking path, initially uphill and then downhill again, until you reach an alpine path just before Bürstegg. Go to the left until you reach Bürstegg. You can rest here and take in the unique landscape and peacefulness.
On nice days, descending to the Wanghus house is definitely worth the trip. To get there, follow thepath through the pasture behind Bürstegg going right. Soon, the path becomes a narrow track that goes downhill fairly steeply to the Wanghus and ends at the bus stop.
In the event of rain, the descent from Bürstegg to the Bodenalpe via the alpine path is recommended. Here, too, the path ends right at a bus stop. The hiking bus will take you back to the starting point.
