Tyrolean cross-country skiing trail seal of approval

For two decades now, the Tyrolean provincial government has been awarding the Tyrolean cross-country ski trail seal of approval under certain conditions to those who apply for it.

The Tannheimer Tal is a "cross-country skiing paradise". Not only the ADAC Ski Guide 2008 finds this and nominated the region as one of the top 10 skiing areas in the category Nordic/Cross-country skiing. There was also a special award from the Federal State of Tyrol: the "Cross-country Seal of Quality of the Federal State of Tyrol". This is valid for three years and criteria such as number of tracks, preparation, orientation or marking are regularly checked.

The Tannheimer Tal has optimal cross-country skiing conditions with a 140-kilometre-long cross-country trail network and a maximum difference in altitude of 50 metres. The trails are suitable for classic style as well as for skating and offer cross-country skiers of all skill levels the appropriate challenges.

Turn-by-turn directions

We start at the building of the Tannheim Tourist Office and follow the easterly track across the flat meadows with a wonderful view of the Rote Flüh and the Gimpel. On the southern shore of the Haldensee we follow the trail along the edge of the forest to Nesselwängle. Below the Tannheimer Gruppe and the Krinnenspitze a wide loop is made over the outermost meadows of the valley.

The return to Tannheim takes place over the flat meadows of Nesselwängle and after an easy descent we reach the eastern shore of the Haldensee. The highlight on this circular trail is the crossing of the frozen Haldensee. The cross-country trail continues past Grän, which lies on the sunny side of the valley, and leads back to Tannheim via beautiful wide meadows with a magnificent view of the expanse of "probably the most beautiful high valley in Europe".
