Winter hiking, sleigh rides and enjoying nature

Take a look at the winter hiking and snowshoeing offers, and enjoy a right in the horse-drawn sleigh!

A winter walk or hike is filled with gentle sound sensations: the quiet rustle of snow falling from the branches of the conifers, the call of the alpine chough, the creaking of the shoe soles on the wintery white engulfing the scenery. Treat yourself to some pleasant, quiet moments on your winter holiday in Ehrwald.

Winter at the Zugspitze: walks and winter hikes

Hike on more than 60 km of snow-cleared winter hiking trails, unhurriedly in the plain valley or up to the alpine cabins in the Zugspitz Arena. Here’s a suggestion for a beautiful winter hike from Hotel Sonnenspitze: walk the 3.8 km up to the Zugspitzbahn valley station easily within 3.8 km. Make a stop at the Brentalm and go back to right outside the hotel with the ski bus.

Snowshoeing: cross-country winter sports at the Zugspitze

Tramp beyond the winter hiking trails with snowshoes that can be rented at the ski rental shops right next to your Hotel Sonnenspitze – best accompanied by a mountain hiking guide – through the powder and across firn. Vespertine torch-light snowshoe hikes are particularly impressive.
