The Allgäu Alpine landscape is a popular mountain destination for people all over central Europe—and it's easy to see why. There are only a handful of places in Europe where you can bask in epic mountain panoramas, gaze over stunning summits like the Trettach, and enjoy the peaceful, serenely green landscape of the region. On well-maintained mountain paths, scenic hiking trails, via ferratas and seven mountain huts, you can enjoy this unique landscape to its fullest. From the beginning of July, spring is back in the mountains and Alpine roses color the landscape in deep magenta, making it the perfect time to hike and climb one of the 400 peaks around Oberstdorf!
The mountain tour on one of the Oberstdorf local mountains, offers fascinating views into the upper Illertal and a magnificent mountain panorama!The starting point of the moderate mountain tour is the middle station of the Nebelhornbahn at 1,260 meters. Alternatively, the first scarce 500 meters in altitude can be climbed via the Faltenbachtobel to Seealpe.

The trail along the 2000m border is one of the most beautiful in the Allgäu Alps due to its magnificent views and the extraordinary botany.The challenging mountain tour begins at the Nebelhorn mountain station via a well-developed hiking trail up to the scenic Zeigersattel, above the Seealp lake.
The varied hike to the highest bathing lake in the Allgäu promises a wealth of sights and scenic attractions.In the west of Oberstdorf it goes first over the bad bridge, the forest rest and the rock crystal initially promising and versatile, but often a bit steeper uphill to the Edmund-Probst-way.
The more demanding round hike in the footsteps of Max Wallraf in Cologne guarantees a varied holiday experience at the foot of the Rubihorn.At the beginning of the multi-faceted hike, it goes over the Schattenberg Stadium up to the Breitenberg.Then there are two descent variants available. The Tobelweg in the valley requires stable mountain boots and sure-footedness, offering a beautiful nature experience in the deep gorge of the wild Gaisalpbach. (The well-developed route, however, offers a much more comfortable and less demanding variant.)Arrived in the valley, it is now easier for a while along the Gaisalpbaches until the trail leads on sunny and scenic meadow paths on Rubi back to Oberstdorf.
