There are several mountains with good views, like the Nebelhorn and Fellhorn. There are many cable-cars to reach the top of mountains around Oberstdorf. In the centre of Oberstdorf there is a large church, with a tall spire [3].

It is also home to several ski jumps, which are used for many competitions. They were also used in the 2016 movie Eddie the Eagle.[4]
