Winter hiking in Ehrwald

Be active in the winter world

Hiking has become popular all year around. The cold season has a fascination of its own: when nature sleeps under a white blanket of snow, the landscape turns magical and serene, every breath feels fresh and every sound is muffled. Snowshoeing is an amazing way to explore the magic of winter.

A snowshoe tour or a torch-light hike in the evening are unique experiences that allow you to discover a whole new world far away from the crowds...

Torch-light hike

Peace and Quiet Under Starry Skies

Every Wednesday after the hearty Austrian buffet we offer a torch-light hike with our guide (included in the Schönruh half-board). He has a lot of stories about our home town of Ehrwald.  

The torches are provided by us.


Become one with nature

Snowshoeing is an amazing way to get close to nature - you'll branch off the groomed winter trails and move over the glistening snow, experiencing the tranquility of the woods and snow-covered meadows. Escape from the frenzy of everyday life, enjoy the solitude and space, let your mind, body and soul unwind.

We shall gladly book a snowshoeing hike with our guide Tomas or with one of our local partners for you.

*plus snowshoes + poles; they can be rented from a shop only 300 m from the hotel
