Winter vacation in Bavaria - skiing in the Allgäu
Ski out & in ”at the Ludwig Royal. With over 50 kilometers of slopes, Oberstaufen is one of the best German ski areas. (Imberg: 18 km, Hündle: 17 km, Hochgrat: 16 km / total: 51 km, 28 lifts)
The Ludwig Royal is located directly at the entrance to the Steibis ski arena. Here you will find, among other things, an 8-seater gondola lift, 6-seater chairlift, ski school, fun park and rustic huts.
Tourers and freeriders will find their paradise on the Hochgrat. And on the Hündle you can walk in the footsteps of the World Cup winners: the first ever Ski World Cup took place here 50 years ago. Or you can go on a ski safari in the largest ski area in the Bregenz Forest, the "Skischaukel Damüls-Mellau-Faschina".
The Olympic champion Christl Cranz, who with her 12 world championship titles in alpine skiing, is Germany's No. 1, grew up in the vicinity of the Ludwig Royal. That is why the cross-country ski run that runs behind the Ludwig Royal, designed for Nordic Cruising, is named after this exceptional skier. Oberstaufen is an official Nordic Center of the DSV (German Ski Association) with a total of 12 classic, skating and Nordic cruising trails. The 50 km long Alpsee-Waldsee trail for classic and skating cross-country skiing is unique.
Winter hiking with or without snowshoes, enjoying the stunning views and stopping off in one of the rustic alpine huts. You have 10 suggestions for winter hikes from 45 minutes to 4 hours. 15 snowshoe tours off cleared hiking trails from easy to difficult invite you. And best of all: Anyone can go snowshoeing - it doesn't require any prior knowledge.
The Imberg offers tobogganing fun with the whole family at an altitude of over 1225 meters. Night tobogganing with evening lighting or the Unterlauch descent from the Hochgrat with 6 kilometers of fast-paced pleasure is a special experience. You can enjoy the tranquility of the winter wonderland on a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride for two or with the whole family. On the ice rink at the Glashaus in Oberstaufen you can ice skate, play ice hockey or prove your skills in curling. Then relax on the terrace by the glass house or enjoy the warm winter sun.
