Oberstaufen is a municipality in the district of Oberallgäu in Schwaben, Bavaria, Germany. It is on the B 308 road from Lindau to Immenstadt.

History[change | change source]

It is first mentioned as Stoufun in AD 868.[3] It was originally part of Swabia. It joined Bavaria in 1805 with the Peace of Pressburg.

Oberstaufen was the first town in Germany to be on Google Street View.[4] This was because of a marketing campaign by the Oberstaufen tourist industry.
