Tobogganing, drinking mulled wine, building snowmen, snacking on chestnuts, waxing skis, powder skiing... In short: this year we are particularly keen on snow. After all, it heralds the most contemplative time of the year - winter. So unpack your moon boots, put on your long johns and head off into the coldest, but at the same time coziest season.

Winter in the gesäuse

Far away from the muddy streets of the city. Far away from the crowded ski slopes. And away from the mass tourism, the walking trails and winter hiking opportunities stretch through the region like little lifelines. On forest paths, small trails through the forest and popular walking trails in the valley, you often walk completely alone for hours in the cold season without meeting another person. The constant movement fires up the inner furnace and so, with the right footwear and good functional clothing, you won't get cold even if the thermometer shows minus degrees. 




When winter spreads its blanket over mountains and valleys without a sound, it's best to spend time with your loved ones. And there needs to be something fun for everyone. The Gesäuse has a lot to offer in terms of family programs.

Get a little inspiration for your vacation in the Gesäuse. The winter landscape in the Gesäuse is magical and makes you forget that you actually want to complain about the cold season. But you can't do that at all at the sight of the thick blanket of snow, the ice crystals everywhere and the rays of sunshine that make the whole world shine. A gentle visit to the wintry Gesäuse nature - whether on touring skis or on the toboggan run - lets you share in the peace and magic of (nature's) winter.

Good to know

Safe through the winter

Outdoor wants and needs to be learned. After all, on your tour you should mainly devote yourself to pleasure and always think you're on the safe side. So you should know in advance when and where it's best to be on the road. If you are not sure yourself, then just book a guide - they know where to go.
