The flower-lined balconies and cheery public rooms of the chalet-style Nebelhorn look out across the valley to the town and the mountains beyond. It is one of Oberstdorf's better hotel values.

Room Number 16, probably the best room (and deal) in the house, is a junior suite that rents for 150 DM ($98), on a self-service basis (no breakfast, make your own bed). Its side-by-side twin beds jut at an angle from a wood-paneled corner of the room. This cozy nook is bathed in light from modern fixtures recessed in the wood-paneled ceiling. Beyond the bedroom is a comfortably furnished separate sitting room that opens onto a balcony with a fine view. There is also a small kitchen, but the bathroom is unfortunately done in a garish burnt-orange tile.

Large, recently-remodeled double rooms, such as Number 40, with balcony, high, open-beam ceiling and separate sitting area, go for 180 DM ($117). Public rooms are most pleasant, particularly the dining room, and there is a lovely little indoor pool with adjacent Jacuzzi. The Nebelhorn offers no transportation downtown, though a bus stops nearby every half-hour in season.
