Sights in and around Oberstdorf

Oberstdorf & its sights

We are happy to give you more tips for excursions. This makes your stay at the Hotel Exquisit particularly varied and fills your vacation in every season with art, culture, history (stories) and tradition.

Be enchanted by the diverse Oberstdorf!

Loretto-Kapellen im Winter

The Villa Jauss

The Villa Jauss was built in 1895 by the Oberstdorf innkeeper and master brewer Melchior Jauss. Clear proportions, the square floor plan and the wooden cladding above the entrance testify to Jauss' love for South Tyrol. Today, interesting exhibitions are held there.

Loretto Kapellen

Abbachkapelle, Marienkapelle and Josephskapelle

The three Loretto chapels Abbachkapelle, Marienkapelle and Josephskapelle are only a five-minute walk away from the hotel Exquisit. They are the 10th (and last) station of the Oberstdorf way of the cross, which begins at the Catholic parish church. If you are looking for inner reflection, here is the right place of contemplation.


"Ora et labora" – in the monastery Ottobeuren

"Ora et labora" – in the monastery Ottobeuren: 1200 years of monastery history characterize the Benedictine abbey. The monks in the monastery still live according to the rules of Saint Benedict – "pray and work". The Basilica of Ottobeuren is one of the most important constructions of European Baroque. It is famous for its ornate stucco marble altars and Rococo-style interiors.
