Oberstdorf - is a town in Germany's Allgäu Alps in the Bundesland (region) of Bavaria known for skiing and hiking. The Nebelhorn cable car climbs the slopes of Nebelhorn mountain and in summer, Fellhorn mountain's cable cars have views of Alpenroses.

Oberstdorf consists of the village of Oberstdorf itself (813 metres above sea level) and other hamlets around the periphery, There are a large number of valleys in the surrounding area, many of which are not only scenic, but are often the starting points for walks and hikes in the mountains.

In wintertime Skilanglauf (Cross Country skiing) trails and Winterwanderwegs (footpaths) traverse the valleys with trails leading past waterfalls in the Breitach gorge.

Oberstdorf is very famous for its part in the annual Vier Schanzen Ski Jump Tournee held in the Erdinger Arena at the end of December until the 6th of January each year, other venues include Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Innsbruck and Bischofshofen, the last two are situated in nearby Austria. The German National Ski Team also train in Oberstdorf.
