Winter in Maria Alm - Hochkönig Relax & enjoy!

If you prefer things to be a bit more sedate then the winter region around the Hochkönig has many other things for you to do. A lovely walk through the snow-covered scenery, on 85 km of very well-tended winter hiking trails, cross-country skiing on around 40 km of slopes (of which a few are altitude slopes which provide fantastic panoramic views), guided ski and snow-shoe tours, a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride or tobogganing with all the family are just a small selection of the activities on offer.
