Oberallgäu: a travelling destination in Germany's far south
The northern Oberallgäu surrounds the independent town of Kempten. It is characterized by a pre-alpine mountain landscape and many little villages that invite outdoor enthusiasts to beautiful hiking and biking tours.
The gate to the Allgäu Alps is located a bit further south and near Immenstadt. Between the mountain range “Nagelfluhkette“ and the mountain “Grünten“, you will find the beginning of the valley “Illertal“ whose small side valleys stretch between Sonthofen and Oberstdorf and reach until Germany’s southernmost point, the “Haldenwanger Eck“.
Lake scenery of the Oberallgäu
One of the most striking characteristics of the Oberallgäu is without doubt the extensive lake landscape. “Alpsee“, “Niedersonthofener See“ and “Rottachsee“ are the biggest and best-known lakes.
But there are plenty more lakes that provide fun and refreshing swimming opportunities during summer. Trips to the “Schrecksee“ and the “Gaisalpsee“ can be combined with beautiful mountain hikes.
