Oberstdorf is a municipality and skiing and hiking town in southwest Germany, located in the Allgäu region of the Bavarian Alps.

At the center of Oberstdorf is a church whose tall spire serves as a landmark for navigating around town. The summits of the Nebelhorn and Fellhorn provide dramatic panoramic views of the alps. The Nebelhorn can be reached with a big cable car. Oberstdorf is one of the highest market towns in Germany.Visitors can ride a unique diagonal elevator to the top of the Heini-Klopfer-Skiflugschanze. Oberstdorf hosts every New Year the first part of famous Four Hills Tournament in ski jump. The American Broadcasting Company's Wide World of Sports inadvertently featured Oberstdorf when Vinko Bogataj fell during the ski jump in 1970 and became "The Agony of Defeat".
