Winter & snowshoe walking

... In Faistenau. The gentle options amongst the winter sports

There is hardly any other type of winter sport where you will find yourself in such harmony with nature as
snowshoe or winter walking.

The design of snowshoes, which remind you a little of tennis racquets, means that they do not sink down in deep snow. This does not however mean that you don't need to be fairly fit to go on a snowshoe walk. Your breath will however probably be taken away due to the fabulous winter mountain panorama.

You can also go walking without snowshoes and make use of the cleared walking trails for extended winter walks and hikes. A total of 35 kilometres of walking trails are cleared in winter and take you to picturesque locations in our valley. Walk along the Hintersee or walk to the start of a&nbp; toboggan run and hurtle back from there to the valley on a toboggan.
