Tips

  • Andreas Platzl

    Einödsbach lies at the end of the Stillach Valley at 1,113 meters and consists of three houses and the 17th century chapel St. Katharina. Doesn't sound like a metropolis. Nevertheless, it is a popular destination for hiking, as it is the southernmost place in Germany.

    A beautiful little place with lots of opportunities for hiking. We hiked high into the Rappenalptal. It was a dream ... the mountains within reach. Luckily Einödsbach can only be reached on foot

    A hiking route to the Rappenseehütte leads past Einödsbach. The former hamlet Einödsbach belongs to the municipality Oberstdorf. It lies at the end of the Stillachtals at 1113 m altitude and consists of three houses and the chapel of St. Catherine from the 17th Century. A safe settlement is detectable for the year 1613. Today, only the year-round managed inn with accommodation facilities is inhabited. This makes Einödsbach the southernmost permanently inhabited place in Germany. From Einödsbach the Rappenalptal branches off to the southwest, to the east it goes through the Bacherloch to the Waltenbergerhaus. The last census shows for Einödsbach ten inhabitants in two residential buildings, each with an apartment. Thus, Einödsbach is no longer classified as a hamlet (at least three residential buildings), but as a single settlement. The chapel St. Katarina in Einödsbach with Trettachspitze and Mädelegabel is one of the most photographed motifs in the Allgäu.
