Snowshoeing around Grainau


Winter forest and powder snow

Strolling through snowy landscapes

Our ancestors used snowshoes or snow-tubes to be able to reach mountain huts or far away spots where the deer was fed. Snowshoes used to be an often vital means of locomotion in regions with lots of snow. Today, they are a popular way to go hiking in the winter.

No matter whether you are a beginner or a skilled snowshoe hiker - you should try snowshoeing in Grainau. We offer some reported tours. Discover nature with snowshoes on your feet: Enjoy the peaceful and quiet winter landscape, discover untouched nature and immerse yourself in the magic winter wonderlands. Head out and have fun!
