Winter in Oberjoch – Germany’s highest mountain village

Ski area with Schneekinderland for your family skiing holiday
During the winter months, Oberjoch is a winter wonderland of snow and ice. The sunny plateau offers 33 km of beautifully prepared ski slopes, plus the Schneekinderland children’s area covering over 20,000 m².

The Iseler ski area is easy to reach on foot from the Kinderhotel, however there are hotel shuttle buses to transport passengers to and from the ski area throughout the day. Once a week, the skiing fun carries on into the night when you can ski under floodlights! Cosy mountain huts and inns invite you to stop for a refreshing break.

Family winter holidays in the Alps – here in Oberjoch in the Allgäu – are quite simply unforgettable! As an additional bonus, guests receive the Bad Hindelang PLUS Card with all its free services, e.g. free ski pass, free mountain railway to the toboggan runs, and lots more!

Schneekinderland

Not only is Schneekinderland a great place to learn and be active, it also includes a fantasy and play area, and a fairy-tale forest with animals. Here, children can learn how to ski or snowboard through play and lots of fun activities. Schneekinderland offers an impressive range of terrain, a zone with steep bends, a magic carpet and an area to practice jumping and slalom. In the children’s play hut, little ones can chill out with our resident mascot, Isidor, take a ride on the snow carousel, or learn to ski in the Rainbow Forest. Children can also let off steam in two igloos and a tubing run. Another special highlight is the children’s express that runs through the ski area.

Ski passes and Schneekinderland are free for our guests as part of the Bad Hindelang PLUS Card.

Tobogganing

Tobogganing fun right on our doorstep – our well-prepared and illuminated toboggan run is popular with young and old alike, making our Allgäu hotel a mega cool place to be in winter!

The thrill-seeking visitors can have a go on one or all three of the 3.5 km toboggan runs at the Hornbahn in Bad Hindelang. Tremendous sledging fun! One of the slopes is steeper and more suited to more athletic visitors, while the other two are very easily managed by children. And there is no need to miss out on all the fun just because you don’t have your own sledge. Sledges and bobsleds can be borrowed free of charge from the hotel! Wooden sledges can also be hired for a small fee from the Hornbahn, Bad Hindelang.

Cross-country skiing

100 km of cross-country ski trails promise a varied active holiday for both classic and freestyle skiers. The extensive network of trails even takes you across the border to the Tannheim Valley in Tyrol, Austria.

In Bad Hindelang there is also a 1.5 km night-time trail, guaranteeing a very special cross-country skiing experience.

Winter hiking and snowshoeing

Experience Oberjoch in all its white splendour on countless winter hiking trails. Torch-lit hikes and winter walks are offered on a weekly basis as part of our guest programme, enabling you to quickly become familiar with the area.
Snowshoeing – a new and popular sport – has found a firm place on our guest programme and is one of the best ways to explore the snowy landscape of Oberjoch. Snowshoeing is easy to learn and provides great access to the mountains, enabling visitors to savour the peace and tranquillity of winter.
