winter joys

Small, fine ski paradises in Eastern Styria convince with affordable quality and are the ideal prerequisite for a family holiday in winter.

Out onto the slopes!


Eastern Styria offers small, fine ski paradises with varied pistes, from gentle to sporty, all the way to early-practice pistes with baby and practice lifts. In the regions of Joglland-Waldheimat and Naturpark Almenland there are 13 of these ski areas with perfectly groomed slopes.

On the track, ready, go!


Cross-country skiing in the garden of Austria is so much fun. Classic cross-country skiers and skaters find perfect cross-country skiing conditions in Eastern Styria. Freshly groomed trails and snow-making facilities ensure cross-country skiing pleasure and snow reliability.

Winter and snowshoe hiking


The gentler landscapes in the Almenland Nature Park and in the Waldheimat-Joglland region, in the Weizer and Hartberger Bergland, Pöllauer Tal Nature Park and Apfel-Land-Stubenbergsee merge with the East Styrian hill country and invite you to go winter hiking in refreshing nature.

At a leisurely pace, but on a big foot, you are on the move when snowshoeing. Once upon a time, snowshoes were the tools of the trade for forest workers to get around in deep snow-covered forests. Today, nature lovers appreciate them to immerse themselves in romantic winter landscapes. On guided tours with Martina & Heimo at the Sommeralm, the all-round experience can be topped.

Even more winter delights!


Whether it's tobogganing, ice skating, curling, ice climbing or horse-drawn sleigh rides - the diversity of Eastern Styria is also reflected in the possibilities in winter!
