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.


The winter hiking trail begins at the top station of the Krinnenalpe double chair lift in Nesselwängle and runs in a westerly direction for a short distance parallel to the ski slope. From the valley station of the Almboden lift the trail climbs up to the turning point at Nesselwängle Edenalpe. On the way there are several possibilities for a rest with a view into the Tannheimer Tal. The Krinnenalpe not far from the top station is also open in winter.

Attention: the high-altitude cross-country ski run also leads along this route!

A stop at the Krinnenalpe or the Gasthof Schuster is highly recommended.

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. Depending on the length and choice of route, good tour planning and physical fitness are essential. 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.
