Other Winter Activities

There's no fun like snow fun in the mountains around Maria Alm

Skiing and snowboarding are great fun, but it is also good to take a break from the slopes every now and then to explore the many other activities available during the winter months. Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and romantic horse-drawn carriage rides are just a few of the options. A popular evening activity is tobogganing, while there are also a number of ice rinks in and around in Maria Alm. The only question is: "What should I try first?"

Skiing with a Difference

Cross-country skiing and ski touring in Maria Alm

Already conquered enough pistes in the Hochkönig ski resort? Then it's time to try ski touring! This popular winter sport involves walking up the mountain on skis using "skins", before whizzing back down through powder fields. Those who prefer to stay down on the valley floor will find 40 km of prepared cross-country skiing trails. The Langlaufloipe Gasteg is even floodlit in the evenings for those who simply can't get enough.

Tip! The high altitude trail at the Arthurhaus in Mühlbach and at the Dientner Sattel offers spectacular views of the mountains. 

Follow in the footsteps of champions! The Maria Alm region is used by many top skiers for training. Visit the website to find out more.

Snow Adventures

From tobogganing to geocaching

The winter landscape around Maria Alm is a huge outdoor playground just waiting to be explored. One option is to leave the beaten track and discover the quieter side of the region with a pair of snowshoes. This activity can also be combined with geocaching, a modern treasure hunt using GPS navigation devices available from the local tourism office.

Those in search of a little more action can try their hand at tobogganing and ice skating or simply settle down for a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride.
