Regional Events

Our unique location in the heart of the Allgäu enables you to experience a plenty of events and attractions. Highlights of the year certainly are the Bregenz Festival on the largest floating stage in the world as well as the "Almabtrieb" in September. But also the smaller festivals or the idyllic regional Christmas markets are worth visiting.

Viehscheid Oberstaufen


An accident-free season on the Alps and celebrating the lucky return of cattle and dairymen is the occasion of Viehscheid, which traditionally takes place on the second or third Friday in September in Oberstaufen. The probably best known customs event in the Allgäu meanwhile became a festival, which attracts thousands of guests and visitors to Oberstaufen.
In 2020 the Viehscheid in Oberstaufen takes place on Friday, 11th September. Our receptionists are at your disposal for further information on the Viehscheid and the supporting programme.
