Walchseer Hof

Cross-country skiing at Walchsee in Kaiserwinkl


Cross-country fans love the Kaiserwinkl. And rightly so - a total of more than 127 km slopes are there for our guests to explore during a cross-country skiing holiday.

The cross-country slopes extend from Kössen, Schwendt, Walchsee through to Rettenschöss. The slopes are prepared daily, with a great deal of care and attention, and they proceed across pastureland and fields, ensuring that while cross-country skiing you get an insight into the sleepy and partly unspoilt natural surroundings of the Kaiserwinkl.

But it is not just for the beauty of the landscape, which you get to experience during a tour of the slopes, that the Kaiserwinkl is known for. Our slopes have been awarded the Tirol slope seal of approval and therefore guarantee cross-country fun at its very best. The routes are suitable for beginners and for fastidious experts alike.
