Do you feel a tingling in your toes when you look at these pictures?

Feel like you are living in an ever faster moving world? One where you are facing increasing daily demands and have little time for your friends and family. This makes it all the more important to take some time out occasionally, catch your breath and slow the world down for a while. A long hike is a great way to do this.

Step by step, you progress at your own pace without any external distractions – except for the spectacular views of the surrounding mountains of course. Often, you are completely alone with your thoughts in the midst of the diverse natural landscape. As you reach the
summit, you feel proud of what you have achieved. It’s successful experiences like these that bring you happiness and create fond memories. After all,
what could be better after a strenuous hike in the mountains than reminiscing about your summit climb over a hearty sandwich in a cosy hut?

When taking time out, it’s not about climbing as many mountains as possible, but simply about getting out into nature and enjoying the healing pro-
perties of the Oberstdorf air. Spanning over 200 kilometres, the hiking network offers a route for everyone.

Choose whether to marvel at the impressive mountain summits from the Oberstdorf side valleys or to start by acclimatising at mid-altitude before
venturing up to the high-Alpine peaks. Of course, you do not have to head out on your own: if you prefer hiking with others, the extensive hiking programme offered by Tourism Oberstdorf is the perfect solution.

Abkühlung in der Trettach

In the valley

Oberstdorf’s valleys are characterised by glacial drift from the latest ice age, which has been ongoing for 2.5 million years and has included both cold and warm periods.

Spielmannsau mountain climbers’ bus line

Line 9763, also known as the mountain climbers’ line...

...runs from Oberstdorf past the golf course and lake "Christlessee" to "Spielmannsau" – and can be used by anyone. The small, Alpine settlement in the heart of the Trettachtal Valley some seven kilometres south of Oberstdorf is the perfect starting point for many hikes. Thanks to its proximity to the Kemptner Hütte, for example, this even includes hikes along the E5 European long-distance hiking route from Oberstdorf to Merano in Italy. A timetable and price information can be found on this website: www.oberstdorf.de/busfahrplaene
