Meetings at This Location

Oberstdorf is a skiing and hiking town, located in the beautiful Allgäu region of the Bavarian Alps in southwest Germany. At the center of Oberstdorf is a church whose tall spire serves as a landmark for navigating the town. The summits of the Nebelhorn and Fellhorn provide dramatic panoramic views of the Alps, and the Nebelhorn can be reached with a big cable car. Oberstdorf is one of the highest market towns in Germany. Visitors can ride a unique diagonal elevator to the top of the Heini-Klopfer-Skiflugschanze. In addition, Oberstdorf hosts the annual Nebelhorn Trophy figure skating competition and has hosted the German Figure Skating Championships on twelve occasions. It also hosted the 1982, 2000, and 2007 Word Junior Figure Skating Championships.
