The Walsertal was a duty-free zone for a long time, yet it has lost this status since the establishment of the EU. The region is characterised especially by the diverse nature of the skiing region – from the nursery slopes through to the alpine runs for the experienced. Rest and relaxation, sporting activities or family holidays – the plethora of opportunities which await you ensure that many guests soon become regulars. A glance in the “Walser Gipfelbuch” online shows you why it is set to stay this way.
The Breitachklamm, the deepest rocky gorge in Central Europe, takes you from the Walsertal to Allgäu, with a particularly lovely hiking path having been constructed back in 1905.
The karst on the Gottesacker plateau is one of the largest areas of its kind in Europe: however, you need to have a head for heights before setting foot on the Hohe Ifen. You can shorten your journey by an hour if you take the Ifen cable car.
The best place to spend hot summer days is in the closed basins of the Schwarzwasserbach – a lovely natural bridge spans the brook.
