So much more than a hotel

Flowering alpine meadows, crystal-clear lakes, thundering waterfalls, a series of imposing mountains and the mystically beautiful Tiefenberger Moor form the magnificent backdrop of Ofterschwang in the German Allgäu. A legend in German hotel history and a picture-perfect box seat, in the midst of picturesque nature, the Sonnenalp has been around for almost 100 years. Opened in 1919 by Eleonore and Adolf Fässler on what was then their farm, the excursion restaurant is now considered the epitome of an all-year-round five-star resort and enchants with a blend of grandeur and relaxed lifestyle.


Rooms and suites: Generosity for individualists and families

Warm earth and natural tones dominate the 218 rooms, suites and flats in various categories, as well as the four romantic Alpine chalets of up to 190 square metres. The natural materials come from the alpine region and are processed by local, often in-house craftsmen. The four private chalets promise a lot of privacy. Separate bedrooms create space for families with children. For dog owners, this is the ideal place for a holiday with four-legged friends in an exclusive ambience.

The Sonnenalp Spa 

The design of the spa is based on the natural surroundings; healing moors, green meadows, spring water and clear mountain air. Materials such as stone and warm woods can be found here. Colour accents in turquoise and aquamarine symbolise the relationship to water, and floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows provide a view of the mountain world and make reference to the alpine character of the hotel.

A journey of discovery: the Sonnenalp culinary world 

At Sonnenalp, you go on an impressive culinary voyage of discovery: Authentic Alpine cuisine meets international haute cuisine.

Children at the Sonnenalp

"With us, there is not one offer for all children, but a large selection of the most diverse possibilities for every age and, above all, for every interest. Whether it's for the brains, the muscles or the senses - everyone will find their highlights here," summarises Sonnenalp Managing Director Michael Fässler. Camps and workshops are organised, for example, on topics such as hip-hop and acrobatics, swimming, poetry slamming or wakeboarding.

A shopping world of its own 

An inspiring shopping experience is just as much a part of the experience: over 30 years ago, the five-star luxury resort opened its own shopping mall. 13 shops and a hairdresser, 40 shop windows and over 250 renowned brands of international designers for women, men and children such as Moncler, Santoni shoes, Bogner, Gant, Hackett London, Riani, Sem per Lei, Habsburg, Barbara Schwarzer, FTC, Iris von Arnim, HCL and Lodenfrey are available. 

The top destination for golfers

When it comes to sports, there are almost unlimited possibilities: In addition to the many summer and winter activities in and around Sonnenalp and Ofterschwang, Sonnenalp offers three top-class alpine golf courses.
