Hiking in the Oberallgäu

In the Oberallgäu, pre-alpine and alpine terrain merge into one another and thus create the best conditions for all sorts of hikes. The beautiful lowlands around Kempten and the gorges "Breitachklamm" and "Starzlachklamm" are popular destinations among hikers. More ambitious outdoor enthusiasts should try crossing the "Nagelfluhkette", climb the "Grünten" or conquer a long distance trail that is part of the "Wandertrilogie Allgäu".
