    Of course, the varied region surrounding Graz also has plenty to offer in winter. For instance, you can go ice skating right in the city or in the near surroundings – at indoor and outdoor ice rinks or on natural ice.

    Did you know that you can also go skiing, cross-country skiing or sledging just a few minutes from Graz? However, the “real” winter sports experts are situated further to the west of Graz Region.

    For instance, most locals have practiced their first turns in the snow at Salzstiegl or Gaberl. Both of them are typical ski resorts known and loved by everyone. In addition, there are several smaller, charming ski resorts that are particularly suitable for families with young kids.

    Another fun activity for guests of all ages is sledging at Salzstiegl. Other popular winter sports activities include snowshoeing and ski touring. You can find magnificent, safe ski routes and breathtaking cross-country trails at Salzstiegl, Stubalm, Altes Almhaus, Gaberl or Hebalm. 

    And what would a day in the snow be without a stop at a mountain hut or restaurant? After some winter exercise, a roast pork dish with “Skiwasser” lemonade, mulled wine or a Styrian beer taste even better!
