The finest mountain pastures in Germany
The region surrounding Oberstaufen is Germany's largest contiguous area of mountain pastures, and it is absolutely perfect for picturesque, romantic walks. In the southern Allgäu, mountain farming still has an important role to play. Every year, for around 100 days in the summer months, cows, ewes, horses and young livestock are led up to the pastures. where they spend a delightful summer break. Most of the alpine dairy farms are still in use, and the numerous examples found in the Oberstaufen region are ideal stopping-off points where walkers can refuel with some fresh buttermilk and mountain cheese.
