Winter fairy tale

Oberstdorf the sport and recreation village

Feel the security and tranquillity of the mountains during hikes through snow-covered winter landscapes or during cosy hut evenings by the fireplace. Leave the stress of everyday life behind you while sunbathing on the sun terrace of the many places to stop for refreshments and mountain huts with breathtaking panoramic views of the snow-covered Alps.

Stroll through Oberstdorf with its large selection of shops and restaurants and cultural events.

For the ones who needs the adrenaline rush, they can rave itself either on the 130 runway kilometers: https://www.oberstdorf.de/ski-snowboard/ with 7 mountain railways: https://www.oberstdorf.de/bergbahnen/ or skate with their cross-country skies by the meadows of the Ösch and into the valleys.

Simply a dream

Bright sunshine, glistening snow on the wide meadows and mountain slopes, frozen streams with impressive ice formations and pure, clear air fills the lungs with every step through the deep snow-covered winter landscape. Experience your own winter fairy tale during a winter walk or during a snowshoe hike!

Cross-country skiing like the profis

Discover "75 kilometres of cross-country ski trails": https://www.oberstdorf.de/langlauf/ and enjoy the view of the snow-covered Allgäu Alps. The trails open up peaceful side valleys and remote villages. So there are no limits for you.

Holiday with thrills

Experience the unique feeling of freedom high above Oberstdorf when Paragliding. A breathtaking ride through the air awaits you.

Alternatively a ride on the "sleigh": https://www.oberstdorf.de/schneespass/rodeln/ offers itself also. Race down the mountain with your sled and try to be faster than the others. But be careful in the curves ... :)

If you can't stop climbing even in winter, try ice climbing. But dress warmly.
