“Top Of The Mountains”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

The Nebelhorn is located in Oberstdorf, the southern most town in Germany. It offers year round opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty the area has to offer. Hiking trails, ski lifts and trails and just a beautiful place to enjoy nature. A gondola leaves from the base station in town by the Ice Skating Rink and takes you above the tree line to a mid station where you depart the cable car. At this point you either take the next car to the top or you can hike, ski, etc.... from the mid station. At the top station of the next cable car there is a facility with bathrooms, restaurant, gift shop. There is outdoor seating available to enjoy the views. The weather can change quickly in the mountains so be prepared for anything regardless of the time of year.

“Even better when you can see!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Returned to this resort, when the promise of getting above the clouds into bright spring sunshine. Superb snow and worth staying high but also do the (not too mad) black down to the middle station before cable car home.

Ask for military discount if you have the ID. It works. Great food and better beer and lovely people.

“Cable Car.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Loved the cable car! It was a misty snowy day when we took the car to the top. So we did not get a view of our surroundings at all, so we have to return on a sunnier day! I was quite scared when we reached the top and it was freezing so we literally jumped on the next car down without spending long up there. I would recommend it as it is a lovely experience looking down on all the trees and people skiing below are just tiny specks at times! The cable cars run very frequently. I will return and do it again.

“The Nebelhorn is a 2224 metres (7297 ft) high mountain in the Allgäu Alps”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

A three stage life takes you over the ski jump to the top (almost). Quite a difficult climb I think to the very top, a bit cloudy when we went so walked back down one stage then got the lifts back to oberstorf.
