Sunny, level, extensive, snow-sure, and all in the midst of picturesque nature

Our idyllic, snow-sure and sunny upper valley might have been purpose-made for cross-country skiers. The extensive trail network in the Tannheimer Valley covers a total of 140 km, crossing the border into the neighbouring Allgäu. Marked in traditional style for skaters and cross-country skiers, the routes have elevation gains of no more than 50 m, offering optimal conditions to gently build stamina while enjoying nature at its finest. You can take a well-earned break and enjoy refreshments at the rustic mountain huts along the trails.

Learn cross-country skiing – skating and classic

In the Tannheimer Valley, there are a number of ski schools where you can learn cross-country techniques in small groups or receive private instruction. Novices particularly can benefit from this opportunity to get the most from the cross-country trails.
