Today I invite you to follow me on a photographic walk through Oberstdorf, a village located at the foot of the Allgäu's main ridge. The region around Oberstdorf has an incredible lot to offer for the outdoor enthusiasts, during winter as well as during summer. With more than 200 km of hiking paths every difficulty level is covered. From panoramic strolls to vertical climbing, everyone can find a fitting tour.
Also, Oberstdorf is the entry point for the route E5, the popular 6 day alpine crossing all the way to Meran. I hiked the E5 in 2010 and can highly recommend it. It was an amazing experience.
On the left the Klausen chapel, built in the late 16th century. On the right the catholic church St. Johannes, located at the village's very center.
The spa garden of the village.
To the east of the village is the valley station of the cable car that leads all the way up to Oberstdorf's landmark mountain, the Nebelhorn.
The ride leads above Oberstdorf's famous ski jumps. Every year on January 1st the Four Hills Tournament is kicked off here.
Almost there. The final ascent needs to be done by foot.
The view rewards the effort.
I hope you enjoyed the tour, thanks for watching and 'til next time!
