When the countryside is covered in a glistening white blanket of snow then our two cross-country tracks suitable for both classic and skating enthusiasts await you. If nordic skiing is not your cup of tea, then well prepared trails invite you to take a winter stroll. Our young guests can have fun tobogganing or practice downhill skiing on our small ski-run. If you're not into skiing then put on your skates and slip and slide to music in our open-air ice-rink. Skates are also available for hire. There's something for everyone. 

The mountains close-bye offer downhill skiing in every category from easy to difficult. If you want to learn how to ski then skiing lessons can be arranged too. The tourist-information will assist you with contact addresses.
