The Oberhof holiday region

Welcome to the Oberhof holiday region. Centrally located in the middle of Germany, you will find one of the most beautiful holiday regions in Germany. The Thuringian Forest and its many facets invite you to discover and relax.

Container Einleitung

Oberhof auf der Höh', surrounded by dense forests, offers you at 820 metres altitude climatic features for which you otherwise have to travel far. A healthy forest climate, the famous sports venues with 365 days of snow a year and over 100 years of tourist tradition with all its facets offer unique moments. Zella-Mehlis, the industrial and trading town, surprises with sharks, experiments and some technical finesse of the time around 1900. Corkscrews were invented in Steinbach-Hallenberg and are still made in show demonstrations. Germany's best-known biathlete, Kati Wilhelm, now pampers her guests in the "Heimatlon".
