It does not always have to be skiing, snowboarding or cross-country skiing. On almost 81 kilometres of cleared paths, hikers roam through the snow-covered fairytale landscape. Along the way, cosy huts invite you to stop for a break. Sitting by the open fire, warming up with a Jaga tea or fortifying yourself with a snack for the next few kilometres - this is how you can enjoy snow walks to the full.

Author’s recommendation

Easy hike, also suitable for families and elderly people, because in the district Steig you can take a short cut to get back to Schattwald.
