Welcome to Wertach in the Bavarian Alps

Wertach is a well-known holiday resort for families recommended by the ADAC (General German Automobile Club). The village is on an altitude of 915 m a.s.l. and is therefore the highest market village in Germany. The market rights were granted to Wertach in the year 1423 and markets still take place twice a year.

The recognised health climate resort in the Allgäu is home to approx. 3.000 inhabitants with about 1600 guest beds and 2 campsites. From the various mountains “Reuterwanne” (1542 m), “Wertacher Hörnle” (1695 m with alprose blossom at the end of June) and “Grünten” (1738 m) you have a fantastic view over the beautiful walking areas, two thirds of which are protected nature conservation areas.

Various points of interest are the parish church "St. Ulrich", the chapel "St. Sebastian" (“Kleine Wies”), the mountain cheese dairy, the local history museum and the 400 year old hammer mill, which dates back to the 17th century (approx. 1610 - 1620).
