Winter Hiking & Walking

Expeditions to a winter wonderland

Your breath creates a cloud of ice crystals, the snow crunches under foot and glistens in the sun ... hiking in the winter months is an even more spectacular experience!

Over 20 km of well-prepared winter hiking trails lead from Hotel Galtenberg through the snow-covered Alpbach Valley. Using snow-shoes you can even reach places that are normally not accessible at this time of year - locations where you can enjoy and admire the untouched natural surroundings.

In the Snow Queen's Empire

No matter whether you want a gentle walk along cleared paths or more strenuous snow-shoe walks on deep snow, the healthy exercise in the clear winter air is good for you and is great fun at the same time. Even for kids! Track wild animals from their prints in the snow and marvel at nature's beauty. From incredible icicles to frozen waterfalls: there is always something to explore in the Alpbach Valley in winter!

Active through the winter

Five times a week we organize a fitness start to the day with guided Nordic walking tours. You are welcome to join us. You can borrow walking sticks from the hotel! Guided snow-show walks are also part of the weekly activity program. It becomes particularly romantic in the evening, when we take a torch-lit walk.

You can get a map with hiking trails and walking tips for your tours free of charge from reception. And if your tour is a little longer than planned, our free shuttle bus can come and pick you up - in summer as well. A phone call is all we need!
