On foot through snow and ice
Winter walking on the Wilden Kaiser
Put one foot in front of the other. Feel the cold air in your lungs. Sense the bright glow of the snowy landscape. Enjoy the moment. That is how a winter walk in the Wilder Kaiser Region feels. It’s hard to tear your eyes away such is the beauty of the Wilde Kaiser cloaked in ice and snow.
Whilst skiing you barely have time to enjoy the beauty and calm on the surroundings, exactly these moments can be savoured on a winter walk. When walking through the winter landscape there is no pressure of time. Here it is really true: The path through the white is the goal.
Winter walking paths
Many of the winter walking paths begin around the Hotel AlpenSchlössl. You can start walking from the door. Alternatively you can wait for the ski bus and let it take you to another recommended starting point.
WINTER WALKING PATHS
The Hintersteiner lake with its crystal clear waters is a true natural jewel. On the mirror like surface a beautiful reflection of the Wilden Kaiser can be admired. The winter walking path is best joined at the Seestüberl.
Snow shoe walking
If you have never tried it you will never know how amazing snow shoe walking is. As a winter walker you are restricted to semi cleared paths, whereas on snow shoes you can set off in the freshly fallen powder snow. Especially in years with exceptional snow fall is the pleasure of walking in powder most enjoyable. The snow shoes are easily fitted onto your walking boots. Walking poles are also required to help your balance. The greatest danger of snow shoe walking is losing your balance: Then before you know it you’re upside down in the white of winter.
SNOW SHOE WALKING
Full moon snow shoe walk
If it’s beautiful during the day it is even more magical at night. A full moon snow shoe walk is a unique experience, which you won’t forget in a hurry. On oversized shoes we venture into the darkness. The path is lit by a head lamp, surrounded by nothing but nature. The only sounds are from the forest and your own breath. The adventure ends in front of our warm open fire. Warm yourself with cup of tea in front of the fire. That’s how your heart will be warmed once again in Hotel AlpenSchlössl.
