Accommodation in the Allgaeu Region

The Allgäu extends from Nebelhorn to Mindelheim, from Lindau to Kaufbeuren. The region in the very south of Germany is divided into four districts. While the Alps in Ober- and Ostallgäu offer a wide range of slopes and ski tours, the gentle hills in West- and Unterallgäu invite you to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

Rivers and lakes, wild and romantic gorges such as the Breitachklamm gorge, traditional villages and historic towns are embedded between the various landscapes. The best conditions to get active, to enjoy Alpine wellness in the middle of the mountains or to stroll through beautiful places. And all this combined with the warm hospitality of the people in Allgäu.

Varied Alpine foothills

What is special about the Allgäu nature area is the varied landscape: wide, open valleys and gentle hills in the foothills of the Alps, majestic mountains and peaks on the main Alpine ridge.

For example, the Große Krottenkopf, with its 2657 m the highest mountain of the Allgäu Alps, followed by the Mädelegabel with 2645 m and the Hochvogel with 2593 m. Between the rugged peaks lie refreshing rivers and lakes, wild and romantic gorges such as the Breitachklamm, traditional villages and historic towns. The best conditions to get active in motion while hiking and biking, to enjoy Alpine wellness in the middle of the mountains or to stroll through beautiful places. And all this combined with the warm hospitality of the people in Allgäu.

Travelling trilogy Allgäu

If you want to explore the Allgäu on foot, you can go on one of the three routes of the hiking trilogy: Wiesengänger, Wasserläufer or Himmelsstürmer. The network of paths comprises a total of 867 km, 53 stages and nine theme rooms. Whether in the idyllic valley landscape, at medium altitudes or on alpine challenges in the Allgäu Alps on the Nebelhorn: hikers can discover the varied Allgäu landscape and its exciting stories in a triad with nature.
