Activities in the Allgäu and around Kempten

Something for everyone - the Bergdomizil "Hölzlers" and its surroundings offer attractive leisure activities for young and old.

In addition to excursions by bike, e-bike, on foot or on horseback, there is a wide range of activities for adventure lovers. For example, there is the possibility of hang-gliding/paragliding, white-water rafting or climbing. For those who prefer to explore the area more leisurely, it is possible to book a horse-drawn carriage ride. There is also a wide range of cultural and culinary offerings.

Moreover, every season lends the Allgäu its very special charms:

In summer, the numerous bathing lakes and beer gardens tempt you with a refreshing dip. In winter, the white snowy landscape of the Allgäu invites you to go on wonderful winter hikes. Whether varied ski areas with snowboard and ski schools, cross-country ski trails or toboggan runs, the wide range of winter sports leaves nothing to be desired.

Especially the Hiking in the Allgäu is a year-round pleasure. The beautiful natural landscape offers countless routes, so there is something for all hiking levels and ages. In the holiday home you can find the relevant literature (e.g. hiking guides) on the flyer wall and in the bookshelves.

For the time spent in the holiday home, a separately located, heated Recreation room is available for use. This is equipped with a table tennis table, table football, boxing bag and dartboard. Wooden tables and benches for outdoor barbecues can also be found in the recreation room and garage.

Below we have put together a small selection of possible excursion destinations and event options for you:
