With 130 kilometres of groomed slopes and 75 kilometres of prepared cross-country trails, the Oberstdorf/Kleinwalsertal region is Germany’s biggest winter destination and will be part of the Nordic World Ski Championships again in 2021 (as it was already in 2005).

starting point for skiing fans and offers a private, free ski shuttle to the Fellhorn skiing area. Ski classes and equipment can be booked on the spot. The area also offers more than 140 kilometres of winter hiking trails at three altitudes. Guests appreciate the individual tips provided by the hotel’s professional hiking guide, both on secret scenic routes as well as where to get the best refreshments on the way.
