Winter magic. On and off the slopes.
Berchtesgaden is not a winter sports resort in the classic sense. More of a winter wonderland. We haven’t scared our beautiful mountains to win hundreds of kilometers of slopes. Nevertheless, we have small but fine ski areas. And that’s not all. Ski touring, cross-country skiing, winter hiking or tobogganing:
the list is as long as the trails in the “Aschauerweiher cross-country center” are covered with snow – hence almost forever 😉 .
When skiing at the Berchtesgadener Land everyone gets their money’s worth. Parents with children, for example, at the Rossfeld or Hochschwarzeck, just above our hotel. Experts drive at the Jenner, it is said. And night owls use the floodlights at Götschen.
Offers four ski lifts with well-tended alpine slopes and
a separate snowboard and boarder cross slope.
The slopes of various levels of difficulty are ideal for families and children.
During the winter, every 8.5 kilometers of slopes can be covered with snow by means of a machine.
The Götschen ski area is located above the village of Bischofswiesen in the middle of the wonderful mountain landscape with a clear view of the Lattengebirge.
Shuffeling is allowed!
Okay, now we have to show off a bit! What many do not know: the Berchtesgaden National Park is one of the most beautiful areas for ski tours in the entire Alpine region. And many ski tours are wonderful for beginners, such as the ski tour to the Hochschwarzeck. In the ski touring park on Obersalzberg you can even learn touring from scratch.
Ski tour on the Hochschwarzeck
Beautiful ski tour in the Berchtesgadener Land, which is also wonderful for beginners. If you are in good conditions and skiing skills, you can even start directly behind the Hotel Rehlegg.
Hochalm & Co.
The wide range of slope exposures and altitudes makes it almost always possible to find a suitable and, above all, avalanche-proof tour, depending on the weather, snow conditions and personal condition.
Slight crunching under the boards and a picture book landscape: that’s cross-country skiing in the Berchtesgadener Land! For example, the Scharitzkehl high-altitude trail on the Obersalzberg and the Aschauerweiher cross-country skiing center are particularly snow-secure – with a view of the Watzmann, cross-country skiing becomes a “really big cinema”.
High-altitude trail Scharitzkehl
The Scharitzkehl high-altitude trail is located at 1,100 meters above sea level on the Obersalzberg. The Kehlsteinhaus towers imposingly over the area of the Scharitzkehlalm.
In the Aschauerweiher cross-country center in Bischofswiesen, more than 20 kilometers of perfectly groomed trails await you against the backdrop of the Watzmann.
This 4 km long network of trails with all levels of difficulty is located on the wild and romantic Taubensee in Ramsau.
Brilliant blue sky, brilliant white peaks: Even without boards, winter in the Berchtesgadener Land is simply wonderful! Trudge through the snowy forest on a winter hike. Visit game feeding in the Berchtesgaden National Park. Or sledding. We recommend the “Hirscheckblitz” – and we are happy to lend you a sledge at the reception.
Downhill is fast – and yet the Hirscheckblitz is the safest natural toboggan run in Germany. The .2.3 km natural toboggan run on the Hochschwarzeck promises tobogganing fun all along the line.
The area of game feeding in the Klausbach valley in the Berchtesgaden National Park is around 45 hectares.
Fairytale winter tour. From the mountain climbing village through the magic forest to the Hintersee.
Winter hike on the Königssee. The lake lies like a jewel, surrounded by steep mountains: the Königssee.
