1. Re: Snow around Oberstdorf in June??

A few years ago we were at Oberstdorf and took the lift up to the Nebelhorn Mountain.

It was a very hot and sunny day down at the Town (over 30°C) but it was very cold at the Lift station up the mountain. And I was able to throw a few snowballs.

I think it was mid July (but 20 yeras ago).

In June the weather in germany is usaly a lttle bit colder and unstable so you may have a good chance of some snow high up in the mountains.

PS:

take a light rainjacket with you its good for sliding down a snowfield :-)

There is a fairly good chance that there will be some leftover snow banks from snow drifts on the top of the Nebelhorn, mentioned by CrazyKraut. At any rate, raking the cable car to the Nebelhorn is a well worth trip. You then can decide if you want to ride down all the way, twalk from the top to the mid-station or to the valley floor from the mid station.
