Best Oberstdorf Hotels

Oberstdorf Hotels

Amongst the breathtaking natural beauty of the Bavarian Alps, Oberstdorf boasts endless opportunities for winter sports, with Germany's longest downhill ski slope, and long smooth trails for cross country skiing. The area is often used for major ski events such as the ski jumping World Cup, and there's an expert figure skating centre where some famous European skaters have trained on the ice. The town also has a busy cultural calendar, with festivals and arts events happening throughout the year.

Things to see

Oberstdorf has a relatively long ski season, and there's usually a thick powdery snow from early December until the last week of April. Although it's a popular resort, there's 128 kilometres of slopes for all abilities, plus dozens of lifts, so it never feels too crowded. In addition to skiing, the steep areas with unusual rock formations make for excellent snowboarding tracks, and there are also long, flat trails that are ideal for cross country, with 76 kilometres of routes to choose from. There are also plenty of attractions in the local area that can be explored all year round. The tumbling waterfalls of Breitach Klamm are frozen in time during the winter months which makes for a spectacular sight, and you can walk along the waterside trails and enjoy the tranquillity. You can also take a cable car to the top of Nebelhorn and then hike along the trails in any weather, with some of the best views of the surrounding mountains at its peak.
