Crisp and clear air, the snow is crushing beneath your feet and everything is blanketed in snow... Walking in the winter brings a sense of calmness that can only be replicated by such quiet brought on by solitude in the wilderness. And our warming huts give an open invitation to anyone who is looking to walk through our winter wanderland. Here are five rewarding options for post-trek refreshments.

1 Reutte | Ehenbichler Alm

Backdropped by the lofty Lechtal Alps in the cloak of winter, this gorgeous walk to Ehenbichl Alpine Pasture Hut is a great way to commune with nature. Gaining 650 meters of elevation, this delightful tour takes hikers along a cleared winter walking trail through sunny open vistas, into hushed stands of sweet-smelling pine, spruce and fir, and the views of the small village of Brand on the other side of the valley are unparalleled. Up on Ehenbichl Alpine Pasture Hut, the efforts are rewarded with uninterrupted views and close-ups of Zugspitze, Germany’s tallest mountain. Their specialty is a mountain-inspired stew of vegetables and organic, locally sourced goat meat.

2 Achensee Lake | Alpengasthaus Falzturn

This delightful Winter Walk across Falzthurntal Valley takes hale and hearty hikers right into the realm of chamois and lucky ones might even spot some wildlife on the snowy hills. This sunny trail has a gentle grade and provides access to quaint warming huts. As of February, the sunny outdoor deck of Falzthurn Mountain Inn is perfect to bask in the winter sun.

3 Kufstein | Gasthof Pfandl

For a breathtaking jaunt in more ways than one, this route climbs 285 wooden steps for a good cardio workout in the beginning, taking you across Kaisertal, which is widely considered one of Austria’s most beautiful mountain valleys. The vistas of the lofty peaks of Wilder and Zahmer Kaiser Mountain Ranges will take your breath away, too. Destination of this easy winter walk is lovely Antonius Chapel that was erected in a sunny foothill location in the year 1711. The quaint parlours of Pfandlhof Inn are a wonderful place to warm up over hearty Tirol staples and venison specialties.

4 Seefeld Olympia Region | Hämmermoosalm & Gaistalalm

Scenic Gaistal Valley was the home and inspiration of Bavarian vernacular writer and poet Ludwig Ganghofer, who loved to spend time writing and hunting here. Today, this snow-laden terrain of stunning natural beauty between Wetterstein and Mieminger Kette Mountain Ranges provides splendid, easy winter walk opportunities. Hämmermoosalm Alpine Pasture Hut is renowned for their amazing, homemade “Kaiserschmarrn”, while Gaistalalm Alpine Pasture Hut lures hungry hikers with mouth-watering, homemade cheese dumplings. Where to stop? Well, we strongly recommend trying them both!

5 Pillerseetal Valley | Gasthof Streuböden Alm & Alpengasthof Wildalpgatterl

Chocolate box villages, bucolic countryside, gently rolling hills and frozen lakes – this wonderful winter walk near Fieberbrunn brings beauty and pleasures all of its own. Warming huts with post-trek refreshments, such as Streuböden Alpine Pasture Hut and Wildalpgatterl Mountain Inn make exploring the snowy landscapes a breeze. Pause for a rest, relax and watch the snow fly with a warm drink and fuel up with hearty Tirolese specialties made of locally sourced produce.
