Take a walking trail or the chair lift to the Kolbensattel, then hike from there, enjoy the playground, have a great meal while gazing at the mountains and Oberammergau valley. Finish with a ride down the coaster for a perfect adventure!

Go into Oberammagau and a 10 minute walk will bring you to the chairlift. A the top you can get onto the coaster ride. This snakes down the mountain with lots of gasp points. Lovely restaurant at the top.

There were a ton of young kids on the mountain learning to ski and just what I was looking for for my family. Although the snow was lacking as it is in all of Southern Germany this Winter, it was just enough... More

The prices of the ski pass are reasonable and ski rental is available nearby. The Kolbensattelhütte is a wooden lodge at the top end of the cable car... More
