Spielmannsau near Oberstdorf, direction Alpe Oberau and Sperrbachtobel
The place has belonged to Bavaria since 1844, before it was politically on the Austrian side. The most important and fastest trade connection to Austria used to go through the Sperrbachtobel, past today's Kemptner Hütte and over the Mädelejoch into the Lech Valley .
In today's Spielmannsau you will find a mountain inn with a restaurant, a country house, a youth home and a farm, as well as the chapel “Christ's Birth”, which was first mentioned in 1695. The shortest of all Oberstdorf valleys also has its origin here. The steeply rising Traufbachtal can be easily reached from Spielmannsau via a road that is closed to public traffic or via a ravine path .
Spielmannsau can be reached via a route that is also closed to public traffic, or with various paths from the Nebelhorn -Talstation, the marsh pond or the golf course in Oberstdorf. Due to the proximity to the Kemptner Hütte, the place is also the central point of contact for hikers on the European long-distance hiking trail E5 .
