As many as seven valleys join the Iller valley in Oberstdorf, each one of them with its own character and unmistakable charm. Any time is the right time to fortify your health. However, the autumn is especially recommendable given that there is seldom fog and plenty of sunshine. Not only is the circulation preserved particularly well then, but Mother Nature also shows herself at her colourful best at this time of the year. A contemplative walk in a multicoloured autumn forest can do wonders.
The Trettachtal is one of seven valleys in Oberstdorf with many restaurants and several accommodations. You can take lots of different hikes along the river Trettach and it is a starting point to various mountain hikes. The Christlessee (916 m), a blue-greenish lake, is one of the biggest highlights of the Trettachtal.
This valley is also called the Gerstrubertal because the famous settlement Gerstruben is located here. This settlement has one of the oldest houses in Oberstdorf; about 400–500 years old.
This valley is located in the east of the Trettachtal. A beautiful trail takes you to the Traufbachalpe, a cosy little alp sur- rounded by the mountains.
The Rappenalptal is on the right hand side of the Stillachtal. It is famous to cyclists, because from here you can cycle over the Schrofenpass to Austria. Of course there are also some beautiful walking and hiking trails in this valley.
The Stillachtal in the south of Oberstdorf gets its name from the river running through the valley, the Stillach. The beautiful mountain lake Freibergsee as well as the Heini-Klopfer-Skiflugschanze and the Fellhorn cable car are located in this valley. Einoedsbach, Oberstdorf’s southernmost settlement with a great view up to the mountains, is the starting point for the famous Heilbronner Höhenweg.
Rohrmoos, the end of the Rohrmoostal, is about 1,070 m high. The valley is a real dream for all hikers and cyclists. Based on its location, the Rohrmoostal always has a lot of snow and therefore it has great cross country tracks.
This valley in the south of Oberstdorf gets its name from the river Oybach. Besides walking and cycling, you can take a carriage ride through this beautiful valley. The Oytal is home to the Oytal Haus, the Stuibenfall, a gorgeous water- fall and the Käseralpe. Characteristic of the valley are the “Bergroller”, little scooters which you can rent at the Oytalhaus and ride back to the Nebelhorn cable car station.
