Mountain climbing

Deep in the south – and really high up! Mountain-climbing and climbing in high alpine environments. From leisurely alpine mountain tours, to high alpine trails which lead to the fixed rope climbing routes (Klettersteig) – Oberstdorf has an answer for all mountain climbers wishes.

The scenic variety of the Allgäuer Alps in Germany is well known. In very few places does one find extraordinary mountains such as the Trettach or the Mädelegabel, immediately next to luscious mountain meadows or illusive vegetation, with steep flanks overlooking grass mountains such as the unique Höfats or the Schneck.

Three mountain railroads, well expanded mountain paths or high alpine trails, on security tested climbing paths and 8 DAV protection cottages, all provide you with the opportunity to enjoy this unique nature masterpiece.
