Oberstdorf Travel Guide: 70 reviews and 255 photos

Here I will introduce you to the beautiful town of Oberstdorf, which is a perfect place to start exploring the Alps. In winter there are lots of possibilities to go skiing, in summer you can hike...

Check out the travelogue of the Breitachklamm, a canyon close to Oberstdorf, which is worth to visit in summer as well as in winter.

More Information you can find on the official webpage of Oberstdorf, which contains a broad view on touristical aspects of the town:

On the picture you can see me above the old Skijump Arena, which is already rebuilt, because we had the Nordic Ski World-Championship here in Oberstdorf. In the background behind me you can see the citycenter of Oberstdorf.

In the middle you can see the church of Oberstdorf.

The old Skijump Arena of Oberstdorf, which was teared down and newly built for the Nordic Ski Worldchamps in early 2005.

    If only we had more time down here, I would like to hike and take in the beauty-but moving on after short one day in our month long trip around Munich. Thanks for the sites, though and good pics

    Hi Christian, this looks like a great area for hiking -- and riding in cable cars!

    Hi Christian, du bist für dein Zuhause zu beneiden. Ich war gerade am Söllereck und in der Breitachklamm. Einfach genial. Gruß Gabi
