    parts of the world, the Ammergau Alps show a whole
    new and wonderful side.
    Coated in a magical cloak of
    snow, the region transforms into a fairytale landscape
    that can be discovered on walks or through many
    other sporting activities.

    Winter Hiking

    Explore the winter landscape of Ammergau on numerous, well-groomed walking trails. Tours for the whole family will take you to secluded farms, chapels, churches, the many frozen lakes and even more of the countless idyllic spots in this area. Experience an exceptional winter atmosphere in fabulous sparkling surroundings, where King Ludwig II used to love to take sleigh rides.

    Snowshoe Hiking

    On snowshoes you can best discover the untouched nature around Oberammergau. Reach the areas that the trails don’t, where you can enjoy magical solitude surrounded by idyllic nature.
    Guided snowshoe hikes are offered for families and for people who want to give it a first try. For these guided hikes, equipment is also provided.


    Where there are mountains you can toboggan. Hills for spontaneous tobogganing fun are just as abundant in Oberammergau as marked toboggan runs. You can also take a lift up to the 1,270 m peak of the Kolben and then speed down into the valley.
    You can hire sledges from almost anywhere. So grab your family and combine tobogganing excitement with a short alpine hike, a fun stop at an alpine hut and finally the run down into the valley. This is guaranteed to be a fun filled day!

    Ice Skating and Curling

    The numerous lakes around Oberammergau freeze in the winter and become the perfect stage for pirouetters big and small, as well as an ideal rink for exciting curling matches. So don’t forget to pack your skates if you come to visit us in winter! You can of course also rent skates. Visiting one of the many lakes is an experience that shouldn’t be missed, even if you simply want to watch the colourful action on the ice.
