Another Oberstdorf must-do is hiking up the Breitachklamm.
A deep gorge that starts flat enough, and quickly becomes tall and narrow.
With the beautiful fall colors and just enough rain to keep the other tourists away, it made for a beautiful walk.
What they don’t tell you is that with COVID it’s only a one-way route. We ended up continuing out the other end into Austria and catching the regional bus back into Oberstdorf!

This looks a whole lot like Colorado to me!


The Split

The river no longer is wide and peaceful, it becomes narrow and wild as it forces it’s way through narrow channels down the canyon.


Wrapped Up

You feel completely enclosed as you walk up the Breitnachtklamm due to the towering canyon walls.


Border Crossing

Austria on one side, Germany on the other.

This certainly doesn’t look like much of a border!
