In the southernmost part of Germany, the Allgäuer Alps is a very popular hiking area. Here, Germany has a piece of beautiful alpine country. The region counts more than 40 huts, and numerous trails. The area is best accessible from the town of Oberstdorf. The Allgäuer Alps run into Austria, and border on the eastern side to the Lech Valley.
The Allgäuer Alps are green in nature, with plenty of alpine meadows (famous Allgäuer cheese). In the northwest lie the Allgäuer Voralpen, a beautiful and spacious area for those who do not want to walk too rough. The eastern ranges form the higher parts, with peaks up to 2600 meters. For those who like steep heights and some easy climbing, the Heilbronner Weg is recommended. This is a ridgewalk following the Austrian-German border.
Due to its popularity, you will find many (German) web sites specifically about this area.
