Even more winter

Made for ice princesses and snow-men

Love winter in all its facets

Cross-country skiing and sledding, ice skating and ice stock, horseback riding and sleigh rides, or simply exploring the area on an extended winter walk. In the time before Christmas, experience the beautiful traditions, attend a Krampus parade in person, visit an Advent market or hike along the magical, snowy Adventweg am Katschberg. Take a comfy seat in the guest lounge of one of the traditionally run local inns and enjoy good regional cooking. The opportunities are many and varied, with personal highlights in store for everyone.

Cross-country skiing

Around 150 trail kilometers invite you to go cross-country skiing using either classic or skating technique. Excellent snow conditions are guaranteed by alpine trails on the Katschberg, in the Prebersee recreation area as well as Schönfeld. The Lignitztal Cross-Country Center outside Mariapfarr leads you for kilometers into the valley, while a floodlit training session involving the laser biathlon shooting range can also rely on man-made snowmaking technology.

Sleigh Rides

A ride on a horse-drawn sleigh promises beautiful hours spent close to your nearest and dearest. Wrapped in warm blankets, everybody snuggles up close in the back of the sleigh, while one or more passengers are frequently invited to sit up front next to the driver.
