Wonnemar in Sonthofen and the modern Cambo Mare in Kempten are ranked among the best water parks in the Allgäu with particularly spacious sauna facilities.
Plenty of mountain railways and chair lifts provide extensive variety. Whether skiing or sunbathing on the Nebelhorn, summer tobogganing by the Alpsee lake or an extended mountain tour with snacks taken at a hut on the Nagelfluh mountains - there is something for every taste.
You find a few selected railways and chair lifts listed below:
Germany's longest toboggan run!
The two-seat toboggan takes visitors up and then the fun really starts. At a length of 2,800 metres, the Alpsee Coaster, with its 68 bends and 23 waves, 7 jumps and 4 bridges, goes from the chair lift station down to the Rodelwirt café directly next to the station at the bottom. An absolutely unique experience for the whole family!
The downhill thrill takes between six to ten minutes, whatever the time of year, since the Alpsee Coaster operates all year round. The toboggan is secured on rails, therefore tipping over or derailing is not possible. Appropriate protective covers on the toboggans guarantee clear vision even in bad weather.
