In summer Oberstdorf is the perfect location for hiking, mountain biking or climbing. The beautiful hiking areas around Oberstdorf comprise about 200 km. We recommend guided hikes such as full-day hikes to Freibergsee or Schöllanger Burg. Breitachklamm, the deepest canyon in Middle Europe, is very impressive. Do not miss a traditional “Almabtrieb” (trailing of the cattle), taking place every autumn.
