“Good place for skiing but also for hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

You should know the "Imberg" is not only a good place for skiing but also for hiking. You will find several inns/alps/restaurants in a walking distance of 15 to 60 minutes.
And some views are beautiful!

“Pleasant Walks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

There is a fairly new cable car which takes you up to the top of Imberg where there are very pleasant summer walks - mostly easy - and a restaurant with reasonable meals.

“Small but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Germany is not the most popular country for the British to go skiing. Of course if you want to meet fellow Brits and eat burgers, then don't go to Germany. The Germans ski there.

Skiing is perhaps a bit limited for top skiers, but there is ample for the rest of us. Even at the end of the season last year, with warm, sunny days, there was still a reasonable amount of skiing. I hadn't been skiing for a few years and had a bad knee, so perhaps that was why I was happy. But earlier in the season, the skiing is more than adequate.

Prices are reasonable for hire, etc. You can book half day tickets, after lunch for example or a week. The bus service from the centre of Oberstaufen to Steibus is regular so you don't need a car.

I stay with friends so can't recommend a hotel but there are hundreds as well as B&B. Oberstaufen is a spa town so if you want a massage or other treatments, there is plenty of choice.

I love Oberstaufen any time of the year. It is the most beautiful little town, well maintained with plenty of shops and restaurants. Summer is spectacular, green, clean and pretty.

Perhaps the main drawback is getting there. You can fly to Munich, but then a train to Oberstaufen, about 3 hours. Worth it though !!
