Living Culture & Culinary Excellence

It is special, our Kleinwalsertal: Not belonging to the Allgäu, but only accessible via Oberstdorf. A dialect and a costume like the Swiss, places with German and Austrian postal code. Isn't that confusing? Go on a search for clues! Whether you hike the Walser history on your own on the cultural trails or take a walk through the valley with the community chroniclers. Many cultural events around the year make the Walser culture come alive: for example, the Alphorn Festival or the Festival of Literature. The tradition of Alpabtrieb is still being pursued today in the field of alpine slaughter and other agricultural practices. There are even more cultural offers in the summer, such as music concerts and folk evenings. Experience the original!
