The charming holiday destination Scheidegg benefits from its exposed position between 800 and 1000 meters altitude on the pledges ridge above Lake Constance. Walkers, cyclists, families will find a great variety of outdoor adventures in quiet surroundings in the triangle of Switzerland, Austria and Germany. To find peace and quiet, the Great Chapel Trail invites you to go hiking. In winter, cross-country trails lure with stunning view to the alps.

April 2011, the tree-top walk Skywalk Allgäu was officially opened. In summer 2011, the new 9-hole golf course was launched.

Scheidegg is climatic health resort and Kneipp spa resort with the award premium class. Unique in Germany is a completely different offer: people who need to eat gluten-free, will find everything they need. For bakeries, restaurants and hoteliers offer gluten-free food, a supermarket leads to match the food. The offer "gluten-free holiday" was "nominated for the German Tourism Award 2010" and was awarded in July 2011 with the "Bavarian Innovation Award in Tourism".
