Our excursion tips:
One hiking destination - three altitudes
Countless hiking trails can be navigated very easily with wheelchairs. Various suggestions for hikes which are summarised in a wheelchair hiking map lead through side valleys and the vast meadows around Oberstdorf. The map can be obtained from the Hotel Viktoria in Rubi and from the Tourist Information Office at the railway station and in Oberstdorf House. Alternatively special e-bikes can be hired using which holidaymakers with different ability levels can enjoy a cycle tour together. For this purpose an e-bike tandem, electric tricycles, e-bike two-seaters as well as the Draisin e-bike wheelchair bike can all be hired from the Allgäu E-Bike Hire Centre The bikes are easy to operate and can be hired on an hourly, daily or weekly basis. The rest points located in charming surroundings invite visitors to experience new culinary delights.
