The Nebelhorn is a 2,224 metres (7,297 ft) high mountain in the Allgäu Alps in Germany, near the village of Oberstdorf. It lends its name to the Nebelhorn Trophy figure skating competition and the Nebelhorn Classics a freeride race event. Also the Nine Knights freeski contest takes place just above the "Höfatsblick" station of the Nebelhornbahn.

Its summit is a well-known viewing point, from where there is a view far into the Alpine massif.

The summit area of the Nebelhorn may be climbed via the Hindelang Klettersteig; it should only be attempted with special equipment (a 'Klettersteig set').
