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.
