Winter hiking

Winter hiking on the Krippenstein means investigating the romantic winter wonderland in a relaxed manner on tiptoes – or tramping through the sweat-inducing high snow!

There are a variety of opportunities - and in the cosy lodges in Krippenstein you’ll hardly miss out on a "stop-off"!

Many of the tour tips for snow-shoeing can also be done without putting tennis rackets on your feet (snowshoes) – yet they can be demanding, when the Dachstein Krippenstein unleashes its full power, which fresh snow can do in just a short time ...

Our tip!

Go up, hike or go to a lodge, be amazed at the panorama and then go back home overwhelmed and satisfied ;))). At times it is foggy in the valley the whole day long and up here the sun shines at its most resplendent, the Dachstein Krippenstein also makes a good viewing mountain.
