They are waiting to be discovered by the experienced skier or for curious new starters.
Sledging by day and by night
With or without a "Jägertee" (tee with rum) - sledging at Imberg or Hochgrat is the business! Crunching snow and adventures corners, steep slopes and breathtaking speed are a huge enjoyment for all who want to truly get into gear.Of course you can hire a sledge if you have forgotten to bring your own!
Wrapped up on a horse-drawn carriage
If you love it romantic - just the two of you - or wrapped up with the whole family or with friends: Travelling by horse-drawn carriage is something very specialAs the sledge runners are quietly crunching the snow, it feels like time is standing still. Only a view sounds reach your ears and the snow covered trees, which look like they have been covered with icing sugar. They glide past you just like in a fairy tale. As the stressful thoughts of everyday disappear, what stays is only the peace of the snow white landscape.
Snow boot walking

You will become one with nature as the snow crushes under your warm winter boots and the snow blanket sparkles around you. During a snow boot walk, the lonely silence of the winter landscape becomes an unforgettable experience. If you prefer something more quaint or more challenging, you might want to explore the heights and lows of the snow covered forests around Oberstaufen: In the Konstanzer Tal, the Weißchatal, around Steibis and around Aach are walks which extend for miles.
Winter walking and "Hüttengaudi"
The Allgäu is famous as a walking destination with green mountain meadows and forests. But walking is here also possible in white: You trek for miles through the crunching snow and after that, you enjoy a dink in front of a log fire during a social "Hüttengaudi" (enjoying a drink in a mountain lodge).

When your cheeks are glowing red from the heat and you feel the warmth around your heart, you continue: a total of 30 kilometers of well prepared winter paths attract you outside into the silence of the Allgäu natrue.
