WINTER HIKING TRAILS
Healthy mountain air, sun and views above the clouds are all good reasons to enjoy winter hiking in Kleinwalsertal. Over 50 km of tracked trails form a network throughout the valley that extends into the side valleys as well. The Breitbachklamm gorge, for example, is an extra special highlight. So too is the Gottesacker circuit trail at 2000 m, which is accessible via two chair lifts. There is even a special cable car ticket especially for winter hikers looking to access high-altitude trails. Snowshoe hikes lead explorers to fantastic vistas.
This Nordic sport can be practiced in Kleinwalsertal from December to April. The three cross-country-ski tracks for skating and classic techniques, extending 50 km, are free to use. New from December 2017: The Steinbock trail, with a length of 15 km, has a 2.5 km section that receives artificial snow. This stretch ensures that the season for sporty skating can start early no matter the weather. The starting point of the Steinbock trail is located close by to the Aparthotel.
SLEDGING AND MORE
The Kleinwalsertal boasts seven groomed sledging tracks, two of which are accessible by lift. Three of these family-friendly tracks are located in Mittelberg. Those in need of a sledge can rent one at the hotel ski rental shop. For sledging fun throughout the year, there is an “Alpine Coaster” at the Söllereck and an “Alpsee Coaster” near Immenstadt. Those still in search of even more fun sports, should try out the latest trends such as snowbiking, skifox and snowcoot.
