A winter hike with border crossing. Discover the deep winter region between Austria and Germany. Enjoy a hike through an unspoilt landscape.

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. On 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.
