Varied Alpine foothills
What is special about the Allgäu nature area is the varied landscape: wide, open valleys and gentle hills in the foothills of the Alps, majestic mountains and peaks on the main Alpine ridge.
For example, the Große Krottenkopf, with its 2657 m the highest mountain of the Allgäu Alps, followed by the Mädelegabel with 2645 m and the Hochvogel with 2593 m. Between the rugged peaks lie refreshing rivers and lakes, wild and romantic gorges such as the Breitachklamm, traditional villages and historic towns. The best conditions to get active in motion while hiking, biking and skiing, to enjoy Alpine wellness in the middle of the mountains or to stroll through beautiful places. And all this combined with the warm hospitality of the people in Allgäu.

History of Allgäu
Relax in the city - in the Allgäu this is possible. Because in the winding alleys you can discover a lot. Old arches and city walls, rippling fountains, lively market squares and historic churches, monasteries and castles give the cities their very own character. Whether Kempten, Isny or Leutkirch - all cities have a historical townscape and a lively urban culture in common.
A very special highlight is a tour to one of the small Christmas markets in the Allgäu, for example the Bad Hindelang Adventure Christmas Market. If you are interested in Allgäu tradition, it is best to visit one of the Klausen or Bärbeletreiben, where young men and women dressed in furs, rags and masks parade through the villages, making a lot of noise with chains and bells and thus putting the dark figures and evil spirits of winter in their place.
