The ski resort Nebelhorn offers 13 kilometers (8 miles) of lift accessible terrain, mostly marked red. It is the highest ski resort in the Allgäu region, featuring a 2,224 m ( 7,297 ft) vertical drop. Nebelhorn is part of the ski association Oberstdorf-Kleinwalsertal.

The hot spots for families and beginners are right at the Speicherteich (water reservoir) and at Koblat. Here you find gentle blue trails. Intermediate skiers also get their money's worth: Seealpe, Nebelhorngipfel and Koblat provide plenty of choices for reds fans.

The black marked run Nebelhorn-Gipfelhang at the summit and the Seealpe Talabfahrt towards the valley are the right choice for real skiing pros. So if you want to venture down Germany's longest valley run from the Nebelhorn summit to the valley in Oberstdorf (7.5 km), you should definitely be confident on your skis. Beginners prefer to choose the ride with the gondola to get back to the valley or at least to the Seealpe. The lower part of the valley descent is then somewhat easier and only marked in red.

Since 2021, skiers on the Nebelhorn get to the Höfatsblick station with a 10-passenger gondola lift. Unlike the old aerial tramway, this one offers seats and it is also no longer necessary to change at the intermediate station. The last stretch up to the summit is then done with the large-capacity cable car Gipfelbahn.

Countless restaurants and mountain huts welcome you to take a break from skiing. Summit restaurant Nebelhorn 2224 is one of the best places to stop, not only because of their culinary treats. Here you can feast with a view of 400 Alpine peaks. Panoramabar Gemsnest at station Höfatsblick is great for snacks, cake and coffee. You are actually able to watch your children playing while you are sitting in the Panoramabar. How? The bar is see-through and you therefore have the perfect view over the playground.

Must-Ski Runs

The slope to the valley is clearly the highlight. With a total length of 7.5 km (4.6 miles) it is Germany's longest base run. No visitor should miss this slope that starts at Nebelhorn and descends into the valley.

You still have energy left or you need a change from skiing? Just go for a hike on the idyllic winter hiking trails. Zeigersattel, for example, is one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the whole region. You also get a breathtaking view on the Allgäu mountain world from the Höhenpanoramaweg at the top station of gondola Nebelhornbahn.

Nebelhorn even has a 2.5 km (1.5 miles) long toboggan run. The station Seealpe is the starting point and then you just speed down the mountain to Oberstdorf.
A hotel of a different kind are the sleeping igloos. The igloo lodge welcomes you with a restaurant, bar and an event igloo. Not your everyday accommodation!

Bring the whole family to NTC park! All kinds of features and activities await. Tubes, snow bikes, air boards and snowfox are just a few of numerous features. Guaranteed fun for old and young snow fans!

Après-Ski and Nightlife

Oberstorf's bars and pubs offer an entertaining finale for your ski day. Schantossibar and Traube Winterstadel are always a good idea for Apres-ski fans. The annual winter fest at Kurpark (spa garden) has to be on your to-do list if you are into Apres-ski music.

Dining and Restaurants

Generally spoken, the focus culinary-wise is on delicacies from the Allgäu. Real gourmets will love the wide choice of excellent gourmet restaurants. Ess Atelier Strauss is always worth a reservation. The Michelin-star awarded restaurant spoils their guests with local food in an alpine and elegant design. Germany's most southern Michelin restaurant, the Maximilians restaurant, is famous for creative gourmet cooking. Tobias Eisele is chef de cuisine and the restaurant impresses with friendly, almost familiar service. The Champagne garden is another argument for making a reservation, especially if the weather allows to sit outside.
