Glide through the snow on cross-country skis while enjoying the spectacular winter landscape. Crystal-clear air, snow-covered pine trees and meadows and a bright blue sky – Oberstdorf’s cross-country skiing trails are a particularly magical way to enjoy winter.

There are 71,000 metres of cross-country skiing fun around Oberstdorf divided into ten perfectly groomed trails for you to choose from. In addition to multi-lane trails in the middle of the valley, you will also find more remote trails for exciting journeys of discovery with the family. We have selected three cross-country skiing trails to tell you about in more detail.

cross-country skiing trails
Here we have selected 6 cross-country skiing trails for you in detailed description.
Oberstdorf circular trail

Length: 8 km cross-country skiing trail and skating track
Altitude metres:
35 m
Location:
close-by, located south / south-west of Oberstdorf, largely flat terrain
Grooming:
during normal winter weather conditions, this cross-country skiing trail is usually groomed daily at approx. 10 a.m. It is always the first trail to be groomed after fresh snowfall. Grooming may be delayed or cancelled due to the weather.

The circular trail follows a diverse but easy route across the meadows and fields to the south of Oberstdorf, from the Walserbrücke bridge to the Loretto chapels. Along the way, it regularly passes points near the centre of Oberstdorf, where you can choose to join or leave it. After passing the lovely St. Loretto pilgrimage chapels, the trail continues to the Renksteg, offering spectacular views along the way. Here you will find the point where the route joins the cross-country skiing trails that were used for the FIS Nordic Ski World Championships 2021. Thanks to its convenient, easily accessible location at the southern end of the village, the trail is definitely one of the most popular in Oberstdorf. The sun-kissed meadows to the south of Oberstdorf guarantee sunshine from the early morning until the late afternoon.

Der Oberstdorfer Langlauf-Rundkurs
Otterrohr

Length: 3 km Altitude metres: 5 m
Location: valley location with low gradients

The Otterrohr circular trail is located at the north-western edge of Oberstdorf. In the north and west, the cross-country skiing trails run parallel to the present-day course of the Stillach River. Unlike many other cross-country skiing trails, these are largely protected from the wind thanks to the surrounding peaks. Their location also means that if the weather is good, plenty of sunshine is guaranteed on them. The largely flat cross-country skiing trails are particularly popular with beginners. In summer, the agricultural land is now primarily used for haymaking or as pastures. In past times, the originally marshy straw meadows along the Stillach River bend were used as arable land for many years. It is no longer possible to determine whether the area got its current name from its former owners or due to the otters that lived here.

Otterrohr (2)
Tiefenbach circular trail

Length: 4 km cross-country skiing trail / 1.5 km skating track
Altitude metres:
56 m
Location:
near Tiefenbach, gently undulating terrain

Grooming: the circular trail is freshly groomed daily as required by approx. 10.30 a.m. Grooming may be delayed or cancelled due to the weather.

This moderately difficult circular trail reveals a hidden side of Tiefenbach, a tranquil district of Oberstdorf, and its picturesque surroundings. If the snow conditions are good, the short circular trail initially proceeds from the foot of the Falkenberg ascent towards the St. Georg equestrian centre. After a short loop, it resumes its path along the bottom of the Falkenberg ascent, this time taking a higher route that looks down on the centre of Tiefenbach and heads towards Rohrmoos. Here, the sun-drenched slopes invite you to stop and soak up the views across the hamlet of Reute and as far as the Oberstdorf Basin. The north-western edge of the circular trail, which is also its highest point, incorporates a manageable loop that is additionally groomed for freestyle skiing.

Tiefenbach im Winter
Rohrmoos

Length: 10 km Altitude metres: 72 m
Location:
medium-difficulty cross-country skiing trail with ascents and descents of up to 20 %

For about half of the circular trail, it is possible to return to the start via a shorter loop. The longer version takes a varied route through an untouched winter landscape and heavily snow-covered mountain forests to the "Aibele Alpe". Here, the trail cuts an idyllic arc around the alpine hut, which is located on the territory of the market community of Oberstdorf but managed from the neighbouring Bregenzerwald region. The return route runs along the opposite side of the valley, undulating as it goes and offering several beautiful views of the gentle mountain ridge of the "Piesenkopf" to the north. On returning to the Rohrmoos mountain restaurant, do not miss the chance for a brief look inside one of Germany’s oldest wooden chapels before you do the inevitable of rewarding yourself for all your hard work! In winter, the only way to get to the Rohrmoostal Valley is via a private toll road! There is no bus line.

You should therefore take approx. € 5.00 (in coins) with you for the toll charge.

Langlaufen im Rohrmoos
Rubi – Reichenbach – Schöllang

Length: 14 km Altitude metres: 77 m
Location:
flat to undulating terrain

In view of its long overall length, this cross-country skiing trail should not be underestimated. However, it can be shortened after a loop in the Rubinger Oy or when near to Reichenbach. With stunning scenery, options to stop for a break at cosy, nearby eateries and idyllic villages, the circular route is a true secret of the Oberstdorf trail network! Due to the exposed terrain, the minimum snow depth required for machine-based grooming is not always achieved. As a result, it is not always possible to use this cross-country skiing trail – including out of consideration of the farmers and land owners. After passing the “Widum”, the trail leads below the Schöllang mountain church and its Herrenholz hill back to Reichenbach. The subsequent descents to Rubi once again offer particularly spectacular views: all the way from the Oberstdorf Basin far into the Kleinwalsertal Valley. More athletic cross-country skiers will again be completely in their element here before the trail finishes with a flat section along the Rubinger Oy towards Oberstdorf. By taking the skiing trail in Karweidach, you can switch to the cross-country skiing trail in Otterrohr.

Langlaufen in den Dörfle
Faistenoy – Birgsau circular trail

Length: 6 km cross-country skiing trail
Altitude metres:
83 m
Location:
valley, largely flat terrain

Grooming: this trail is one of the first to be groomed each day at around 9 a.m. Grooming may be delayed or cancelled due to the weather.

The southernmost cross-country skiing trail in Germany lies deep in the Stillachtal Valley and is a moderately difficult trail offering truly amazing views of the Allgäu mountains. This circular trail, with its spellbinding scenery, begins close to the Fellhornbahn valley station. From here, the trails climb gently upwards, passing the village of Anatswald and heading south. All the way to Birgsau, you will enjoy panoramic views of the Linkerskopf with its mantle of white and the surrounding summits of the Allgäu’s main ridge, blanketed in deep winter snow. Snow is pretty much guaranteed on this circular trail, which runs close to the main ridge of the Allgäu Alps. If the snow has already thinned on the trails nearest to Oberstdorf, you are certain to find better conditions here. We recommend visiting this trail in the late afternoon when it is at its sunniest.
