Winter in the Allgäu
...beautiful winter sceneries in our region
When the snowflakes lightly fall, our holiday region decks itself out in new clothes. Many rub their eyes in amazement and enter the fresh and glittering winter world, enjoying the various sports facilities and recovering from the drab monotony of everyday life. Winter in the Allgäu has many faces with Nordic ski world championships as well as romances of a long winter evening. Enjoyment is everywhere: if you like it nice and warm have a ride in the horse carriage on cleared winter roads with the panorama sun terrace, protected from snow. Skiers and snowboarders on the other hand will be enthusiastic about the many skiing areas located in this enchanting region at the feet of the Alps.
Winter Sports in the Allgäu
The Allgäuer invested a lot in ski- and winter-amusement: therefore in comparison with international standards a high level is guaranteed. From the winter season 2007/2008 on there will be a ski ticket valid for most ski resorts Allgäu-wide. To improve comfort and service, e.g. reduce waiting-times at cash-desks and ski-lifts, each year new investments in new techniques are made. Substantiated know-how in combination with modern techniques like snowguns guarantee well prepared slopes. Both, cross-country ski-runs as well as ski-slopes are partly lightened and hence create a very special atmosphere. As a matter of fact the price for a one-day-ticket is below the average of the big ski-resorts of the Alps and costs between 21 and 35 €.
According to the German Snowboard Magazine Playboard the Allgäuer Alps is the best Snowbaord region where snowboarder can enjoy themselves. In an international comparison two aspects were outstanding: on the one hand the funpark at the Fellhorn and on the other hand the close distance to other ski areas where new terrain can be experienced.
The Allgäu is not just a leading area in skiing and snowboarding but also for cross-country skiing. In 2005 the FIS built new cross-country skiing runs for the World Championships in Nordic Skiing around Oberstdorf. Being open for public these tracks are a real challenge for every fan of Nordic skiing. All in all the Allgäu offer a wide range in ski-sport on a very high level which is also recognized by the international sport associations: since 1953 the Four Hills Tournament take place in Oberstdorf every year. Beside this classical tournament there are several other contests, like the Freestyler and Snowboarder which are on the right way to gain cult following.
Everyday life, its stress and strains lose its immediacy. Simply breathe in the crystal clear air. Remember almost-forgotten sounds, hear the crackling of the snow at each step and feel happy and satisfied with life. These are dreams that become reality in the fresh winter climate of the Allgäu, where the mountains and the steel-blue heaven form a timeless backdrop.
Walk quietly to the next feeding point for wild animals, wrapped up warm and pulled along by steaming horses, open up a welcoming door by torchlight - winter has many faces and still more winter routes to the peak of enjoyment, recuperation and relaxation.
Winter freshness has a double tradition in the Allgäu. Follow in its footsteps and enjoy some physical exercise. Enjoy yourself on the blades of the giant wood and hay transportation sledge. Or try a trek with snowshoes - tiring but delightful in the silent landscape.
Highest- possible views between snow dunes, following in the footsteps of our trapper forbears away from the beaten track.
