Apres Ski in Oberstdorf

Oberstdorf Village

Oberstdorf (813m/2667ft) in the Allgäu region of Bavaria, is the most southerly winter sports resort in Germany.

It first achieved fame as a spa resort and a Nordic skiing centre. (It has an exceptionally good cross-country network of 85km, and world class ski-jumping, hosting an annual four-hill ski jumping tournament.) It’s a full-on, attractive, bustling mountain community – one of the largest in rural Bavaria, and nestling in Germany’s highest valley. It has a delightful pedestrian precinct and an extensive array of attractive shops and hotels, plus a first class spa (Vital-Therme Oberstdorf) and swimming pool complex. But as the locals are keen to point out, there’s a lot more to the place than the “Three Ks” – Käse (cheese) Kühe (cows) and Kuren (spas).

Oberstdorf Restaurants, Bars & Apres Ski

With over 100 restaurants catering for all tastes, Oberstdorf offers plenty of choice including international cuisine, traditional local specialities, and to suit all budgets from fine dining to fast food.

For local and game specialities, try the Königliches Jagdhaus in Ludwigstrasse. There’s more fine dining, in a small and intimate setting, at Maximilian’s Restaurant in Freibergstrasse. Baccus Stuben, in Freibergstrasse, specialises in mid-price regional specialities and fine wines.

The Hotel Mohren in the town centre has another mid-price restaurant with international cuisine in the Marktplatz in the centre of town. Lovers of Italian food will make for Bei Alberto in Ostrasse: from pizza to fine Italian dishes.

For those on a budget who nonetheless enjoy a rustic setting, the Brutschers Waldesruh Stuben in Alte Walserstrasse specialises in local Allgäu specialities. Families on a budget could also try the Gasthof Wienerwald in Ludwigstrasse – good for chicken and ‘Schnitzel’ dishes.

Oberstdorf Activities

There’s a bowling alley, sports centre, gym, indoor and outdoor heated pools, saunas and solariums, curling and ice skating.

For the more daring, there’s hang gliding, and paragliding. With 140 km of walking trails, the area has been described as the “biggest pedestrian precinct in Bavaria”. You can snowshoe-hike too. There are two toboggan runs, each 3km long. There’s a local history museum – or if that idea doesn’t interest you, how about the schnapps museum!
