If you're on the hunt for a loipe in Oberstdorf, you don't have to look very far. Just around the corner from the station there are 75 kilometres of prepared, modern loipes– some sunny and sheltered, some challenging, and others idyllic and relaxing. Ten of them can even be prepared with artificial snow, such as the "Rundkurs Oberstdorf" circuit, which starts at the south-west edge of the town. It winds through fields and meadows, past the pilgrim church St. Loretto and on to the "Renksteg". The cross-country ski stadium "Ried" also has floodlights, so you can continue skiing on into the night.
