Snowshoeing and Winter Hikes

Snowshoeing in Ramsau am Dachstein

Whether on the clearly marked hiking network that stretches out across the Ramsau high plateau, or as a simple hiker with snowshoes amid the snowy winter landscapes - encounters with almost virgin nature blanketed deep in snow promise a uniquely peaceful and reflective experience.

Aside from the countless ski trails in this cross-country Eldorado, Ramsau has also always maintained winter hiking paths away from the XC trails and roads, expressly for the use both of hikers as well as horse-drawn sleighs.

3 main hiking paths are essentially the gateway to the entire high plateau and, together with smaller winter pathways, even lead up to the higher alpine meadows as much as 1700 m above sea level. And in winter, too, numerous country inns with cozy dining rooms, rustic huts and sunny terraces invite passers-by to stop in for a spot of relaxation and a bite to eat.

The Dachstein - the easternmost glacier in the Alps

The imposing ski area on Dachstein Glacier, together with perfectly groomed pistes and XC trails, guarantees you an exciting winter holiday at the foot of the Dachstein. The ready accessibility of the Amadé ski areas as well as the glacier makes Hotel and Romantic ChaletAlmfrieden an ideal base for unlimited skiing enjoyment.

Both during the daytime as well as in the evening, there's never any shortage of entertainment at the huts. In nice weather, be sure to enjoy those magnificent views out across Austria's alpine world. And come evening, party the hours away with all of your high-spirited companions.
