Immerse yourself in Bavaria’s winter wonderland. Whether you want to relax for a few days or search out action-packed winter sports: Bavaria offers single people, couples and families unforgettable winter holiday experiences.
Snowboarding, skiing, cross-country skiing or tobogganing: The Bavarian Alps entice visitors with modern lifts and well-constructed pistes – for example in Karwendel, in the Berchtesgaden Region or in the Allgäu. The Low Mountains of the Bayerischer Wald (Bavarian Forest), Rhön and Fichtel Mountains also offer beautifully groomed descents. In the Tölzer Land – as elsewhere in Bavaria – you can find fantastic cross-country skiing terrain with almost 200 kilometres of tracks. Cross-country fans can hone their skills on easy or demanding trails, or test their mettle at a biathlon shooting range. There’s lots of fun to be had with tobogganing. A gentle sledge ride or a thrilling descent – feel the wind in your face as you go down Bavaria’s natural toboggan runs.
Fantastic distant views, crisp snow: Discover Bavaria’s natural surroundings in the silent world of winter walking. Snowshoeing offers the perfect combination of sport and nature. Alternatively, you can experience the fairy-tale landscapes in comfort on a trip on a dog sled.
Take a climbing tour and scale gigantic frozen waterfalls. Get together with friends for ice skating or curling on one of the frozen lakes. Hurtle down the famous ice channel of Lake Königssee in a racing bobsleigh. Or try out “snow tubing” and slide down the slopes in giant rubber tyres. Here you will find an overview of the most important winter events in Bavaria.
