Cross-Country Skiing in the Tannheimer Tal Valley

With gently rolling terrain and few steep hills, the Tannheimer Tal Valley on the German border is renowned as one of the best places in Tirol for cross-country skiing.

The gentle terrain on the border to Germany’s Allgäu region is very beginner-friendly: 98 out of 140 kilometres of trails are rated “easy” and have an elevation gain of less than 50 metres.

However, for easy-going skiers to competitive racers, Tannheimer Tal Valley has it all. The 31-kilometre-long SKI TRAIL loop, for example, takes avid cross-country skiers over the border into Germany. Every year this very trail plays host to one of Austria’s biggest cross country ski race events, the Tannheimertal Valley – Bad Hindelang SKI TRAIL (2021 cancelled). There is no fee to use the trails of the valley and the range of special services put on for cross-country skiers is exceptional.
