The German Alpine Road passes through Bad Hindelang, the sunniest Alpine region in southern Germany. Winding its way past Vorderhindelang, Hindelang, Bad Oberdorf and the turn-off towards Hinterstein, it takes you over Joch Pass, where the road bridges a 360 metre difference in altitude along 105 bends, and continues past the villages of Oberjoch and Unterjoch.
Situated at the heart of the Allgäuer Hochalpen nature conservation area, this region is highly biodiverse and is ideal for active holidaymakers, families and anyone who enjoys life. There are 300km of marked trails and numerous cycle routes that lead through unspoilt nature, three Alpine via ferrata for keen climbers and three cable cars that take visitors up high to enjoy the fabulous views of the valley.
The Bad Hindelang PLUS card offers 40 free recreational activities/benefits and is available from participating accommodation providers if you stay at least one night. It can be used, for example, for free rides on the cable car and local buses; it provides free entry to leisure facilities, such as swimming pools, and in winter can even be used as a free ski pass for the entire region. To celebrate its tenth anniversary in May 2020, the card also offers 20 new exclusive experiences such as a kässpatzen cookery course or a mountain bike training session with pro cyclist Nadine Rieder.
