Seven Reasons to Ski the Allgäu
Presented in association with Nordic Blowfish
1. Choice of resorts
There are nearly endless slopes to ski on in the Allgäu, and you’ll find numerous well-known ski areas here, such as the famous Oberstorf, Alpspitz Nesselwang, Grasgehren, Fischen and Oy-Mittelberg.
2. Magnificent scenery
The beautiful mountain landscapes will take your breath away: many distinctive summits, such as the Widderstein and the Hohe Ifen lie in the region. The Nebelhorn is one of the Allgäu’s most popular mountains with locals and visitors alike because of its easy accessibility. It is also a well-known summer spot for mountain hikes.
3. Over 500km of ski slopes
World class winter sports events plus tailor-made packages to suit every taste and interest, ranging from winter wellness and family snow fun and games: that’s what Allgäu winter dreams are made of!
4. One ski pass fits all
Book with Nordicblowfish and they will provide you with the cross-border ‘Allgäu-Tirol-Kleinwalsertal Super Snow’ ski pass, providing access to 35 cable cars and 200 ski lifts over eight renowned winter sport resorts.
5. Floodlit fun
Sledding or skiing down torch-lit slopes is a wonderful way to experience nature! A total of 45km of ski slopes, 12km of cross country tracks - set against the fairytale backdrop of the palace of Neuschwanstein - and seven sled runs are illuminated.
6. Unique culinary experiences
Whether you’re looking for a cosy restaurant serving traditional dishes or a Michelin-star rated restaurant serving the finest fare, Bavaria offers both ends of the spectrum and everything in between. Bavarian cuisine makes the most of fresh produce that is locally sourced, complemented with delicious Bavarian beer or Franconian wine.
