More information

Arrival details are available here.
The entry area to the cross-country ski trail network is located at the Grüner See tourist office, where in addition to sufficient paid parking spaces, changing facilities and equipment rental are also available.

In order to run the entire approx. 15 kilometres of trails in one round, we keep to the left in the start area to get to the meadow trail, which winds 6 km across the Tragöß valley floor. After you have almost reached the start and finish area again, turn right to the forest (3.1 km) and panorama trail (2.8 km), which leads past the Kreuzteich pond, through the forest up to the "Simonbauer", from there it is downhill again to the finish area.

Snow safety on the "small meadow circuit" (approx. 2 km) is guaranteed by the snow-making equipment.

In addition to the impressive nature experience, the Tragöß - Grüner See trail convinces with perfectly groomed 15 trail kilometres in three different difficulty levels. These are interconnected and offer the possibility to either run only the preferred route (meadow, forest or panorama) or all approx. 15 km in one continuous loop.

You can borrow snowshoes from the equipment hire shop and explore the wonderful area around the Grüner See, even off the tracked trails! 
With the BusBahnBim app of the Verbundlinie, timetable information has never been easier: all bus, train and tram connections in Austria can be queried by entering locations and/or addresses, stops or important points. The app is available as a free app for smartphones (Android, iOS) - on Google Play and in the App Store. 
Cross country skiers use the parking Grüner See free of charge.
