Cross-country trail Birnberg

Closed
Cross-country skiing pleasure between Haus im Ennstal and Ramsau on the sunny plateau Birnberg

For sun lovers we recommend the sunny cross-country trail on the Birnberg plateau. Dense spruce forests followed by clearings and meadows, intact nature and silence await the connoisseur. - IMPORTANT: The trails are only groomed when there is sufficient natural snow!
