Winter hiking and snowshoe walk
Through dreamlike scenery
Nothing beats a stroll through the fairytale snow-covered winter landscape, in which you dream and enjoy the glorious white splendour. "On Shanks's pony" you´ll easily leave the everyday stress behind. To this end, we have prepared and signposted around 80 km of winter hiking trails in Kaiserwinkl. And if you want to discover winter off the ploughed winter hiking trails, you can always join the guided snowshoe tours.

Magical evening hike with lanterns
After dark, we meet in the village of Kössen or Walchsee, light the candles of our lanterns and walk on winter hiking trails to the respective Calvary. At first the lights of the village shine more strongly, then they become smaller and smaller the higher we come. Finally, we disappear in the dense forest and only the light of our lanterns points the way. Now is the right time for legends from the Kaiserwinkl - like the history of the Schatzhöhle of the Antenloch or the Totenkirchl in the Wilder Kaiser. After an hour and a half we are back in the village - light and warmth drive out the mystical mood, which still resonates in us.
