Nordic Walking

This joint-friendly trend sport is a first-class health programme! The use of the sticks turns walking into an endurance sport that also trains the muscles of the upper body. Nordic Walking strengthens the entire musculoskeletal system, can help you lose weight and is very easy to learn.

Alpine school Schonner

Mountain guide Andreas Schonner takes you safely to the summit. Thanks to his expertise and experience in the Wilder Kaiser region, you can fully enjoy your climb and the beautiful view.

Winter hiking trails in the four “Kaiser villages” Ellmau, Going, Scheffau and Söll

Ellmau has 39 kilometres of winter hiking trails. One of our recommendation is the hike along the cross-country ski track and then up to the “Wochenbrunneralm” at 1,080 metres. As a reward, you can stop off at a cosy alpine hut and enjoy an exceptionally beautiful view of the valley.

The neighbouring municipality “Going” provides more than 33 kilometres of romantic winter tours through snowy forests and panoramic walks – up to the “Hollenauer Kreuz”, for example. You will not find any better close-up view of the Wilder Kaiser!

The “Blaikenrunde” walk from the church in Scheffau and along farmhouses is equally beautiful. There are more than 32 winter hiking kilometres in Scheffau. Try the climb to the Hintersteiner Lake, for example. A walk along the path around this natural jewel in winter rewards the visitor with glittering images of snow and ice.

Söll has more than 22 kilometres of winter hiking trails. The “Pirchmooser” route, for example, leads you along the “Sunnseit trail” and past the “Pirchmooser chapel”: A beautiful, sunny route with numerous opportunities to stop off at restaurants and inns.
