Picturesque valleys, gigantic mountains, cosy alpine huts, fantastic views and refreshing mountain streams – discovering Oberstdorf on your mountain bike is a wonderful adventure. Located in the Bavarian Alps, Oberstdorf is Germany’s southernmost village, and one of its highest. The spectacular mountain landscapes provide the perfect backdrop for a family getaway. In this Collection, we’ve put together 16 biking routes for you which showcase the region’s diverse nature. You’ll find something to suit everyone – from leisure bikers to summiteers.
Most of the routes in this Collection are suitable for all levels of riders, even novice bikers. Some of them can be extended to push you further if you are looking for more of a challenge. You will follow quiet roads and dirt tracks through the mountains with some steep uphill sections. The alpine landscape is best discovered on a mountain bike or you could consider an e-mountain bike, too.
The Allgäuer Hochalpen are one of the most species-rich and diverse mountains in the Alps. In many areas you are in a nature reserve. For a sustainable nature experience and to ensure that we all together protect and preserve the nature of Oberstdorf, we would like to ask you to be prudent and respectful in all your activities. Please stay on the designated hiking and biking trails to avoid disturbing the delicate flora and fauna. Also, please close any cattle gate that you have opened yourself and keep your dog on a leash. Please keep a respectful distance from animals and avoid disturbing them. We firmly believe that together we can help to preserve the beautiful nature of Oberstdorf.
Tip: Before every tour, check out the mountain sports report from Tourismus Oberstdorf for information on the trail network and the current mountain weather. In addition, you will find information about alps, refuges and other infrastructure facilities. Also available as a newsletter! -> oberstdorf.de/alpininfo/bergsportbericht
