World-class skiing in the small Allgäu town of Ofterschwang

The small ski resort of Ofterschwang is located in Sonthofen, just a few kilometres from the better-known winter sports resort in Oberstdorf. But smaller doesn't necessarily mean worse, as Ofterschwang regularly hosts world cup events. Alongside the pros, it is also perfect for families and novices.

In summer, the Allgäu Alps are covered with flower-filled mountain pastures, and clear mountain streams carve a path down the side of them. In winter they transform into a ski paradise for the whole family. The two-valley ski resort of Ofterschwang-Gunzesried offers 18 kilometres of slopes for both beginners and advanced skiers. There is also a long cross-country trail, 36 kilometres of cleared hiking paths, a snow shoe park, a toboggan slope and a ski area for children right next to the mountain station.
