The Kofel is a 1,342-metre (4,403 ft) mountain in the Bavarian Alps of Germany. With its distinctive white head it is the signature mountain of the town of Oberammergau, from which the summit is only about one km away. Due to its prominent location and unique shape it can be identified from a considerable distance both from the direction of Ettal and that of Unterammergau.Make Kofel a part of your Oberammergau vacation plans using our Oberammergau sightseeing planner.
Amazing panoramic views of the town and surrounding areas. The hike to the summit is not for the faint of heart, but worth the effort. If you love alpine hiking, you will not be dissapointed.

A good little hike, about an hour of climbing. We went up before first light to watch the sunrise. Awesome views over Oberammergau.

Amazing hike, not terribly challenging, but harder than the Kolben or the Laber.
Absolutely worth the effort! If you can walk you can make it to the top! If you are afraid of heights you can get some beautiful views but the last part may be a bit intimidating. I’m so glad I took the opportunity to make this hike. I only wish I had hiked back down into town via the alpine slide.
