Introduction: A few words about the current situation

Dear listeners,

Use the Audio Guide Oberstdorf of DB Regio Bayern in the current situation as a virtual travel guide that inspires you and makes you want to take a trip to Oberstdorf in the Allgäu Alps!

Chapter 1: All travel information for your planning

Off we go to Oberstdorf! In this chapter we have compiled some important information about ticket purchase and travel planning that you should know before your trip.

Chapter 2: First impressions at the station

You have arrived in Oberstdorf? Then take a moment to let your gaze wander over the imposing mountain range opposite the train station. The second sight on your tour is "Die Wilde Mändle" statue on the station forecourt, a legendary figure from the mountain world.

Turn on this chapter when you get off the train in Oberstdorf.

Chapter 3: A piece of Oberstdorf's local history

From the train station we walk to the local history museum. On the way there, we stop briefly at the Old Town Hall. The elaborate mural of the town hall shows significant scenes for the town of Oberstdorf - on the one hand the granting of the market right in 1495 and on the other hand the opening of the railroad line in 1888. Arriving at the local history museum you will have the opportunity to learn more about the history of the town as well as interesting facts about the beginnings of alpinism in Oberstdorf.

Are you ready to start from the train station? Then it's time to listen in on this chapter!

Chapter 4: Winter sports in Oberstdorf: are you still jumping or are you already flying?

Oberstdorf has made a name for itself in recent years as a venue for internationally important winter sports competitions. So it's only fitting that we visit the Audi Arena, one of the most modern ski jumping stadiums in the world. Take the glass elevator up to the panorama spots, from where you can admire the ski jump table and many other highlights.

The best way to start this chapter is to leave the local museum.

Chapter 5: With the Nebelhornbahn, the way is the goal

Admire 400 peaks at 2,224 meters? Then head to the Nebelhornbahn valley station! Enjoy the view of the fantastic mountain panorama during your ride with the highest cable car in the Allgäu. It's up to you whether you go straight all the way up or make a stop beforehand. With children, a stop at the Seealpe station is recommended for the "Uff d'r Alp" nature and adventure trail. Or get off at the Höfatsblick station for one of the many impressive hikes.

You will start this chapter again at the Oberstdorf train station. We'll hear you there!

Chapter 6: On to the deepest rocky gorge in Europe: the Breitachklamm gorge

Are you ready for a spectacular tour? Then the Breitachklamm is the right place for you! This impressive natural experience was created about 10,000 years ago - the melt water of the Breitach glacier literally ate its way through the Schratten limestone rocks and created a gorge almost 100 meters deep. After this adventure, you'll have earned some downtime at the Alpe Dornach restaurant, a short walk from the gorge.

Tune into this exciting chapter after your arrival at the Breitachklamm!

Chapter 7: Gourmet Tour to Christlessee

Now we visit Christlessee in the wild and romantic Trettach Valley. A total of four gourmet stops await you here, where you can indulge in regional delicacies and homemade treats. Try one of the many delicious cakes at Berggasthof Riefenkopf or stock up on honey, meat and milk from their own organic farm at Café Restaurant Christlessee. Lastly, visit the mystical Christlessee, which never freezes over. What is the reason for this? Because of the numerous underground springs hidden in several chambers in the lake.

Start this chapter when you arrive back at the train station in Oberstdorf.

Chapter 8: Walk to the source of the river Iller and the Rubi level

The four most famous rivers in Oberstdorf are Trettach, Stillach, Breitach and Iller. Did you know that the Iller is quasi a "child" of the other three rivers and the birthplace is here in Oberstdorf? We visit the source of the Iller together and walk to the Rubistufe. There are numerous "Schtuidmändle" or in High German "Steinmännchen" to discover. The Rubistufe is also a popular place for rafters and kayakers - maybe you can spot one or the other during your visit.

And again, we start this chapter of our tour at the train station. Listen in before you leave the station by bus!

Chapter 9: Sporty time travel to the mountain farming village of Gerstruben

In Gerstruben it goes back to the past! The mountain farming village is located at 1,155 meters and is one of the highest places in Germany. The picturesque backdrop of houses up to 500 years old in front of the impressive summit panorama is guaranteed to cast a spell on you. If you're in the mood for a little breather, stop at the Berggasthof Gerstruben and sample delicacies like Kaspressknödel or Flädlesuppe.
