World-class skiing in the small Allgäu town of Ofterschwang

Good things come in small packages. This easily overlooked ski area hosts world cup events, but is just as suitable for families and novices.

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.

To destination

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.

Nesselwang: Paradise for freestylers, snowboarders and slopestylers in the Allgäu

There's plenty of winter fun for young and old alike in one of the best snowparks in the Alps.

Attention fans of winter sports! Whether you love snowboarding, sledding, skiing or cross-country skiing, the Nesselwang snowpark and its adjoining ski areas have plenty to offer for all ages and ability levels.

To destination

Wide family slopes, a black run and a mogul slope – there's something for everyone on the mountainside in Nesselwang. If you haven't got your fill of it during the day, you can ski or snowboard down the mountains on freshly prepared slopes under floodlights from 18:00 to 21:00. The snow park has now become a trendy meeting place for freestylers in Allgäu. Competitions also regularly take place there.

The longest descent in northern Bavaria on the Ochsenkopf

Fun on the slope descents in the Alps: this is possible at the ski resort on the Ochsenkopf in the Fichtel mountains. The two longest descents in northern Bavaria are tempting.

To destination

Good news for those of you from North Bavaria – if you're looking for easy and moderate runs, you're in the right place in Ochsenkopf in the Fichtel Mountains. You can find ten kilometres of slopes, pistes with floodlights, a snowboard park and a night-time cross-country ski trail here. The rustic inn Bleaml-Alm is perfect for après-ski.

Ski resort Garmisch-Partenkirchen: Zugspitze and Garmisch ski resort

In the ski resort Garmisch-Classic, you can wear yourself flat out on 40 kilometres of ski pistes, and at the same time enjoy a view over the highest mountain in Germany, the Zugspitze.

To destination

What's the result when you combine the ski mountains Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alpspitze? The Garmisch Classic ski resort with 40 kilometres of slopes and four snow-covered valley runs. Whether you want to speed down into the valley on your board, you're planning to get on your snowboard for the first time or you want to leisurely glide through the snow – this is the place for you. At the Hexenkessel resort there is also a freestyle park of 6,500 square metres in size for skiers and snowboarders.
