Kleinwalsertal ski resort
During the winter, this area, together with Oberstdorf, constitutes the largest Austro-German ski region, and has much to offer. The Kleinwalsertal enclave, once settled by farmers from the Valais region, is Austrian territory as such, but can only be accessed from Germany. For over a hundred years, it has effectively been a German economic region following a customs agreement. The Kleinwalsertal ski area offers comprehensive packages and events for sports enthusiasts, families, and those in search of adventure. Together with the Ifen and the Walmendingerhorn, there are countless carving and powdering facilities for alpine skiers, snowboarders, Telemark skiers and ski touring fans. A single ski pass for 52 lifts and 74 ski runs makes experiencing the entire valley fun and easy. There are also countless huts, pubs and hotel bars in the villages of Riezlern, Hirschegg, Mittelberg and Baad for that pleasant wintry pastime known as après-ski.
With 10,500 beds in total, there is accommodation assured for all tastes and for every budget. Comfortable multi-star hotels, alpine inns, holiday apartments for families, privately managed guesthouses, group and youth hostels, as well as alpine campsites, all welcome guests with unrivalled Austrian hospitality. Because Kleinwalsertal is easy to reach it is the perfect holiday destination for people arriving from overseas. Munich, Stuttgart and Zurich airports are only some two and a half hours away by car or train, and Ryanair now flies to Memmingen (Munich West) and Friedrichshafen, which is also only around one and a half hours away by car. Inexpensive flights are available from London Stansted with Ryanair to Friedrichshafen or Allgäu Airport Memmingen (Munich West). You can travel from there with the transfer bus to Kleinwalsertal.
