  • Insider tip

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.

From the church in Schattwald in western direction and before the district Kappl left. Past the petrol station into the Steig district and along Rehbachstraße to Rehbach. The return journey can be made on the same route or further on via Unterjoch to Oberjoch and Schattwald.

Easy hike, also suitable for families and elderly people, because in the district Steig you can take a short cut to get back to Schattwald.

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.
