cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and winter hiking
Cross-country skiing is a great form of exercise and strengthens the cardiovascular system.
The following trails are free for guests staying at Wellnesshotel Warther Hof:
Please follow the trails in the direction marked and keep to the right-hand track. The municipalities of Warth and Schröcken are responsible for these trails.
For safety reasons, individual trails may not be groomed or may be closed due to the risk of avalanche. All trails are groomed, marked and secured as well as possible. However, no liability can be accepted in the event of accidents. Choose the trails that best suit your ability. Walkers can find groomed hiking paths alongside the trails. Those trails that are subject to a charge are for cross-country skiers only.
Cross-country equipment can be hired from Hotel Jägeralpe or Salober Snow Park only.
... is not only a way to walk on the snow in winter, but is also a simple way to enjoy sport and nature at the same time and is a relatively easy activity for all ages and abilities. Secured routes include those that run in parallel to all winter hiking trails in Warth and Hochkrumbach. Snowshoes can be hired from our hotel reception; a deposit is payable.
... through a winter wonderland! There's nothing quite as wonderful as wrapping up warm for a walk along the winter hiking trails in Warth or on the Hochtannberg Pass, followed by a delicious, steaming hot chocolate to warm you up. 20km of perfectly groomed winter hiking trails through a snow-covered landscape make for fantastic walks!
