In summer Zöblen is - like the entire Tannheimer valley - meeting point for those who love hiking. There are plenty of hiking trails in the valley able to satisfy every needs, taking hikers across the mountains of the Tannheimer valley.

Moreover winter hiking in the valley and to the Zugspitzblick mountain (1,300 m asl) as well as cross-country skiing along the valley trail in the surroundings of Zöblen are popular winter activities.

Our recommendation: in the Tannheimer valley, every year on the occasion of the feast of Sacred Heart of Jesus in June, there are several fires on the mountains, which is an impressive event! Once upon a time these fires were meant to be a protest against the troupes of Napoleon.
