Winter holidays in the Allgäu
Sun, snow & fun on the piste – that is a winter holiday in Bavaria
When the Allgäu is covered in its white winter coat, then it's the perfect time to visit us. Because that's when the winter sport season starts at the AllgäuSternHotel in Sonthofen and with it a period of many distractions. Of course, our skiing guests appreciate the proximity to the Allgäu ski resorts (Nebelhorn, Fellhorn, Oberjoch, Hörnerbahn and many more) and their excellent piste quality. But even those who want to enjoy another side of Alpine sport in winter will be coming to the right place. Leisurely snowshoe hikes through snow-covered forests or a romantic carriage ride in the Allgäu are so much fun. Don't forget cross-country skiing – many kilometres of well-kept cross-country skiing trails await you!
Ski resorts in the Allgäu
Winter in the Allgäu: over 100 diverse, partly snow-covered downhill runs, deep snow slopes for individualists, half pipes for snowboarders, special carving slopes for all ski enthusiasts and wonderful hiking trails, as well as eventful programmes for non-skiers.
There are a number of ski resorts around the AllgäuSternHotel. Whether informal or demanding, comfortable or athletic, every area has its own personal and distinctive character. Carving, snowboarding, telemarking - nothing is left to be desired.
Cross-country skiing in Oberallgäu
Cross-country skiing is a popular winter sport which is gaining more and more prestige in the Allgäu. That's because the Allgäu offers a number of cross-country skiing trails for both beginners and experienced skiers in addition to its unique nature.
Hundreds of kilometres have been prepared to give you the opportunity to glide through the unspoiled nature, over the snow-covered pastures, sunny Alpine plateaus and alongside rippling streams.
Our Concierge & Sports team are available to answer any questions about cross-country skiing courses and ski hire.
Snowshoe hiking in the Allgäu
Snowshoe hiking has become a real winter experience. Appreciate almost forgotten sounds with the crunch of every step through the snow, bringing you in closer to nature. Snowshoe hiking is an activity you can embark on without extensive prior knowledge, since it is a leisurely and tranquil, yet demanding and adventurous sport.
We offer free, year-round guided hikes from Monday to Saturday. In winter, our hikes are complemented by the use of snowshoes to enjoy discovering the glorious Allgäu winter landscape. This is not free-of-charge.
Snowshoes are available at the hotel.
