Travel information

The map (not true to scale) shows the main train connections to the Kleinwalsertal. The train station closest to Hirschegg is Oberstdorf in Germany (it is the end station of that train line). From there you can get the Walser bus to Hirschegg. The bus stop closest to your accomodation and the Waldemar Petersen Haus (see coordinates P 5 on the local map of Hirschegg) is Ausserhirschegg (N 7).

If you have any problems, you can call us at the Waldemar Petersen Haus (phone +43 5517-5217 from outside Austria) on Sunday, January 15 2012, starting at 17 h.

If you come by plane the most suitable international airports are Munich, Stuttgart and Frankfurt (all located in Germany). All three airports have frequent city-train connections (S-Bahn) to the corresponding central train stations. Frankfurt Airport has its own long distance train station (AIRail terminal/Fernbahnhof).

For details contact the current timetable of the "Deutsche Bahn" for appropriate train connections to Oberstdorf. (On this web-page the on-site train stations of the Munich, or Frankfurt airport should be entered as Muenchen Flughafen Terminal or Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Fernbf, respectively; furthermore Jan 15, 2012 as 15.01.12 and 5 p.m. as 17:00)

Please note that although Hirschegg politically belongs to Austria it can only be reached via German (see map),

Credit cards are not accepted everywhere. Persons with travel documents, which enable them to enter Germany, need no further visa to go to Kleinwalsertal, since there is no border control.

The Kleinwalsertal is a well-known skiing area. There are 10 lifts at Hirschegg and some 5 km away cable cars going up to 2000 m. One of these (Kanzelwand) offers a direct connection to the Oberstdorf skiing area. Skiing-equipment, also for cross country skiing, can be rented at shops in Hirschegg.
