Tannheim Valley

High peaks and picturesque alpine pastures - it is no coincidence that the Tannheimer Tal enjoys the reputation of being the "most beautiful high valley in Europe". But the idyllic valley, situated at 1100 m, has much more to offer than just a dreamlike natural backdrop. Winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy endless cross-country ski trails and six cozy ski areas. In summer, numerous hiking trails, varied road bike tours, welcoming huts as well as a versatile and family-friendly range of leisure activities await you - ideal conditions for a few beautiful days in the mountains.

Winter sports in the Tannheim Valley

In the Tannheimer Tal, cross-country skiing hearts beat faster: A whole 140 kilometres of trails are groomed here. This is particularly impressive when you consider that the Tannheim Valley is only 16 kilometres long! Thanks to short distances and access points in all the villages in the valley, you can concentrate fully on the sport and the wintry Alpine landscape. The excellent infrastructure with ski schools, ski rentals and ski bus directly from the hotel to the cross-country ski trail entrance makes a big contribution to the perfect cross-country skiing experience.

For alpine skiers there are 6 ski areas to choose from in the Tannheimer Tal. However, if you are looking for a big skiing hype, you are wrong here: At Neunerküpfle, Füssener Jöchle, Nesselwängle and Co. it is more relaxed. The easy-to-follow ski areas are particularly suitable for families, but sporty skiers will also find some challenging runs. Ski tourers feel particularly at home in the Tannheimer Tal, as there is a wide choice of possible ascent routes and downhill runs.

For those looking for peace and relaxation, winter hiking (for example to the picturesque Vilsalpsee) or snowshoeing through the unspoilt winter landscape is the best option. Families with children should definitely not miss out on a tobogganing tour!

Hiking and mountaineering in the Tannheim Valley

Only a few kilometres behind the German border stretches the Tannheimer Tal, which awaits hikers with a varied offer. According to the motto "Hiking on three levels", pleasure hikers, panorama lovers and alpinists will find their favourite tour.

Von Oberjoch rund um den Grünten by Nina
May 19, 2023 · Outdooractive Premium
Sehr abwechslungsreiche Tour durch blühende Wiesen, verschlafene Dörfer und stille Mischwälder. Einzig für die erste Abfahrt durch den Wald sollte man am besten ein Mountainbike und etwas technisches Geschick mitbringen (Einstieg s. Foto, ca. S1, kann aber gut geschoben werden, ist nicht weit). Und die Auffahrt über die alte Jochstraße von Bad Hindelang hinauf nach Oberjoch ist recht knackig.

Abwechslungsreiche Tour mit schönem Panorama, aber nicht "familientauglich" oder "leicht". Technisch gesehen ist sie zwar easy, aber konditionell schon eher "mittel" statt leicht. Wir haben ohne Pause ca. 5 Stunden gebraucht.

Sebaldweg by Jane

Wunderschöne Tour mit herrlichen Ausblicken (erstes Drittel Mai 2023), nur manches Straßenstück zieht sich etwas. Der Bus fuhr nur bis kurz hinter den Kreisverkehr (Oberjoch), also war bis zum Einstieg in den Tobel ein gutes Stück Paßstraße zu bewältigen, dies nur als Info. Für Sebald-Fans doppelte Empfehlung.
