In Oberstdorf and the Kleinwalsertal Valley

A fantastic outlook for summer

How to enjoy the mountains
Diverse, exciting and family friendly: the six large hiking areas in Oberstdorf and the Kleinwalsertal Valley offer unique mountain experiences for people of all ages. This summer, the Nebelhorn, Fellhorn / Kanzelwand, Söllereck, Heuberg, Walmendingerhorn and Ifen once again offer a broad range of options.


The valley station of the Fellhorn cable car is located between the Heini-Klopfer-ski jump and Birgsau.

This well-known floral paradise is the ideal destination for families with children and anyone who wants to experience the mountains first hand. Gentle circular hiking trails, streams, mountain lakes, an educational flower trail, mountain summits and magnificent views make for an unforgettable visit. The Burmiwasser adventure trail on the Kanzelwand is a particular favourite with children. Mountain restaurants with large sun terraces provide plenty of refreshments, while the Bergschau 2037 natural discovery centre in the Fellhorn summit station offers interesting information and spectacular

If you are bringing a dog with you on the Fellhorn or Nebelhorn cable car, they have to wear a muzzle. You can purchase a muzzle at the valley station for 5,00 – 10,00 EUR depending on the size of your dog.


The impressive 400-peak view is legendary!

The spectacularly beautiful Oberstdorf Nebelhorn is known for its impressive views of 400 mountain summits. The new mountain restaurant at the top of the Nebelhorn offers a 270-degree panorama for meals with the best views. The Nebelhorn is also attracting further visitors with a second highlight: the Nordwandsteig (north face walkway). This newly created walkway leads around the summit and
gives many visitors a real thrill despite being optimally protected and completely safe. The Nebelhorn is the starting point for not only easy walks and wheelchair and pushchair-friendly circular trails but also high-Alpine tours and the Hindelanger Klettersteig (via ferrata). Young visitors simply love the unique “Uff d’r Alp” alpine discovery nature trail as well as the climbing wall and huge playground. The newly created and easily walkable
Höfatsweg trail from the Höfatsblick cable car station to the Zeigersattel reveals what makes the high mountain so special. Informative stations answer questions about geology, flora and fauna. The large Marktrestaurant at the Höfatsblick cable car station, the new summit restaurant and the glazed Gemsnest panoramic restaurant all offer mouthwatering meals.

Kleinwalsertal cable cars

next to Oberstdorf

There’s plenty to do and see in this rocky region, which fascinates with not only its magnificent rock formations but also the impressive karst plateau Gottesacker (ancient German name for a cemetery). In the summer, the middle station of the two-seater chair lift at 1,586 metres is the starting point for walks, hikes and challenging day trips. Food and drink can be obtained at the Ifenhütte, which overlooks the children’s playground and the Kneipp pool. Due to renovations, the Ifenbahn chair lift will not operate during the 2017 summer season.

The Heuberg chair lift whisks you up to the summit station at 1,380 metres. High up yet not in the high Alps, a spectacular view of Hirschegg and Riezlern awaits you. The Kleinwalsertal Valley lies at the foot of the mountain, which also offers numerous mid-altitude ridgeways for you to stroll, walk or hike along to your heart’s content. This is also a popular region for mountain bikers, who can enjoy a diverse network of natural routes in a spectacular mountain setting. They, too, can reach the summit on the chair lift – without any extra charge for their bike.

The perfect place to delight the senses and tantalise the taste buds, this mountain guarantees sublime experiences even in summer. The large sun terrace and impressive viewing platform offer bon vivants everything they need for a relaxing day: spectacular views, deckchairs, chilled music from the “mountain radio” and gastronomic delights from the nearby summit restaurant.
