Events & Highlights in Oberstdorf

Events for everyone

A holiday in Oberstdorf is anything but boring. In addition to all the activities that you can experience in nature and here in the Hotel Exquisit, there are winter and summer events that bring even more variety in your vacation.

The winter season is especially eventful, particularly when it comes to sports events. As a versatile winter sports region, Oberstdorf is predestined for cross-country skiing and ski jumping / ski flying events. But summer has also a lot to offer in particular when it comes to tradition. The well-known Viehscheid (cattle drive from the mountains back into the valley) is just one of the events worth seeing.
