I was in Oberstdorf on a very rainy day in August 2005 which was a shame really. When we were driving into direction Oberstdorf two days later I saw all the great mountains behind it. This place must be nice when it's sunny!

It wasn't really when we were here so we just had a quick look at the skijumping hills and a little walk around town.

However, there was hope! We drove to the skiflying hill a bit outside of Oberstdorf and the rain stopped. Clouds cleared a bit while we were on top of the fantastic hill and I really enjoyed it - The first skiflying hill in my collection!

So after all - this was just another skijumping day ;-)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great mountains around town. Great skijumping.
  • Cons:Not really a beautiful town center
  • In a nutshell:No place can impress when it's raining heavily.
