Oberstdorf ski resort lies on the border of Germany and Austria. The so called “Zwei-Länder” (Two Countries) ski region comprises Oberstdorf, a large, picturesque, cosmopolitan but surprisingly little-known Bavarian resort, and the Austrian region of Kleinwalsertal which is entirely surrounded by Germany. Between them, the two areas provide a wealth of good skiing.

Oberstdorf, roughly equi-distant from Munich, Stuttgart and Lake Constance, rivals Garmisch-Partenkirchen for the title of Germany’s top ski resort. It has three ski areas: the main one, eight kilometres out of town (reached by ski bus) on the Fellhorn (2037m) links with Riezlern (1086) at the end of the Kleinwalsertal valley, where there are three other skiable areas close by: Hirschegg, Mittelberg and Baad. Another is based on the Nebelhorn (Misty Mountain), a 2224 metre peak reached by cablecar from the town centre. And a third provides delightful gladed skiing on the Schönblick, reached by the Söllereckbahn gondola. Oberstdorf has a strong Nordic skiing background, and . the entire Nordic skiing area was either re-built or renovated for the World Championships in February 2005.
