Where to go in Winter

Special destinations

It is so beautiful here at Landhof that you may not want to leave us at all...  But if you do feel like a day out, we can highly recommend a number of destinations in the surrounding area:

Winter Walks

How about a stroll through the wonderfully snow-covered winter landscape? We have no less than 125 kilometres of perfectly groomed winter hiking trails here at the Wilder Kaiser!

Ellmau, Going, Scheffau and Söll can also be explored on foot in winter - with numerous restaurants along the way, combined with a simply quite beautiful scenery


You can experience a very special kind of winter walking with snowshoes: Rather like the old idea with the tennis rackets, you slip the snow shoe over your regular winter boots. They allow you to head off on extended tours in deep or powder snow!

Follow the tracks of wild animals through snow-covered woods, or climb a summit if that is what you fancy - snowshoeing is suitable for every fitness level and every taste. Even for children, this type of hiking can offer a great new experience in nature. On request, we will gladly arrange the appropriate equipment, as well as experienced guide to help you explore new trails...

Husky Sled Ride

A special excursion destination awaits you in Söll: a happy howling pack of huskies! A short walk over snow-covered paths leads to Erwin and Margit, who welcome you together with their fascinating dogs.
Details about the huskies and funny anecdotes await you, along with a mug of hot punch. Everyone is allowed to have a ride on the sled - a truly extraordinary experience for all ages.
You can book this at the information office in Söll - we are also happy to make reservations for you here.


The ice rinks in Going and Söll are easily accessible, as are those in St. Johann/Tirol and Kufstein. You can hire ice skates at the rinks themselves and we will be happy to help you make your reservations in advance.

“Ice penguins” are on hand to help your little ones with their first tentative steps on the slippery floor. More experienced skaters will appreciate the covered ice rink facilities at Kufstein Arena.


Five regional facilities invite you to sample the delights of the ever-popular winter sport of curling!

In addition to the ice rinks in Going and at Söller Moorsee, there are also curling rinks in Ellmau near Naschberghof, in Scheffau near Hintersteinersee and at Going Curling Lanes. No matter how good (or bad) you are - everyone is welcome here!

“I enjoy telling guests about my personal experiences as an extra on the “Bergdoktor” set... It might make their hike to the film locations even more interesting!”

Urlaub beim Bergdoktor

Der Bergdoktor öffnete seine Praxis in Ellmau im Jahr 1992 zum ersten Mal: Gerhard Lippert verkörperte fünf Jahre lang den leidenschaftlich engagierten Dr. Martin Gruber. Seit 2008 hat der Österreicher Hans Sigl mit dem Bergdoktor eine seiner Lebensrollen gefunden; bislang flimmerten 12 Staffeln der ungebrochen erfolgreichen Serie über die Bildschirme. Isabelle Winkler war drei Jahre lang Teil des Teams.
