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.

Because there is so much to discover and see along the approximately 81 kilometres of cleared hiking trails, so much fresh air to fill up with, that every step becomes a pleasure - whereby the inns and cafés along the routes offer extensive possibilities to strengthen and warm up. If you want to experience something really special, join a guided snowshoe hike. Those who want to reach high altitudes have two possibilities in the Tannheimer Tal to climb a peak in winter, too: the Neunerköpfle in Tannheim with the largest peak book of the Alps or the Gamskopf with the panorama information system in Grän.

From the car park at the entrance to the town west in northern direction through Zöblen and before the bridge turn right towards Tannheim. Pass the camping site, cross a small pedestrian bridge and continue in the direction of Tannheim. Turn right at the chapel and walk parallel to the Vils in the direction of Zöblen. Back to the small pedestrian bridge in front of the campsite turn left towards the main road. Walk along this road in eastern direction to reach the path through the Zöbler Moos. On this path you reach the starting point again.

One should visit the St. Leonhard chapel (plague chapel) near Kienzen.

Safety guidelines:
It should be noted that winter hiking also involves an increased risk of accidents and injuries. Especially in winter, special attention must be paid to the condition of the paths. Suitable clothing, good shoes and possibly hiking sticks provide additional safety. Stay on the marked paths.

An up-to-date and well-kept/maintained equipment (shoes, sticks and clothes) not only provides a considerable degree of safety but also makes winter hiking much easier. Sun protection (high protection factor and possibly sunglasses) as well as sufficient liquid should not be forgotten.
