Holidays In The Ammergauer Alps

The Ammergauer Alps, also called Ammergebirge is a mountain range that partly belongs to Germany, Free State of Bavaria and to Austria, federal state Tirol. It is framed by the well-known towns Füssen, Oberammergau, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Ehrwald and Reutte. The border between the administrative districts of Upper Bavaria and Swabia, runs from south to north through the Ammergauer Alps. In the snow guaranteed valleys between Unterammergau, Oberammergau, Ettal and castle Linderhof is a wide net of cross-country ski-tracks and on the first weekend in February the annual König-Ludwig-Langlauf, attracts numerous international professionals to this most beautiful location.

Snow fun in the Ammergauer Alps

Alpine skiing can be fun for the whole family, as much as sledding, ice-skating, Nordic walking or snowshoeing. Ok, the latter first feels a bit like walking on tennis rackets with your legs apart, reminding a bit of Django, but once you are off the beaten track, you feel like a trapper in a pristine winter wonder world. The ski areas of the Ammergauer Alps include mount Steckenberg in Unterammergau, mount Kolben in Oberammergau and mount Hörnle in the Spa Town of Bad Kohlgrub. 150 km of cross-country ski-tracks lead you through the Ammergauer Alps with both, the classic and the skater tracks available. If you or your kids are beginners, plenty of schools are nearby to get you started in your new favorite sport.

Steckenberg in Unterammergau

Here you can choose from 7 lifts and 10 slopes with an altitude between 830 and 1,100 meter. From Mondays through Fridays night ski-runs are offered. At the foot of the mountain is a very good learning area for kids and beginners. Join the fun between the middle of December until March daily from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. and in the evenings between 7.00 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Kolben in Oberammergau

This mountain has 1 chair lift, 7 drag lifts and 7 km of ski-runs with an altitude between 874 and 1,276 meter. Mount Kolben has 90 % of blue slopes and 1 km of red slopes, who are convenient located in wide forest aisles. That guarantees a good visibility on snowy days and that the snow stays long.

Laber in Oberammergau

This mountain is the place of the cult chair lift, that can only transport 11 people at a time and the only way down is Germany’s steepest slope, the free riding slope. Adrenaline will pump through your system on this 2.5 km long and very demanding stretch.
