Winter hiking in Bavaria

The most beautiful trips for snow kings and ice princesses

Bookmark

Frozen-over streams, snow-covered tree tops, glistening snow – you can see Bavaria's most enchanting side on a winter hike. These trips through fairy-tale winter forests and enchanted ravines are an experience not to be missed, especially for children, as they remind you of something from a Disney film.

Circular hiking trail in Bad Steben in the Franconian Forest

One of the possible starting points along this 18.7-kilometre route is the spa park in Bad Steben – around a ten-minute walk from the station.
Discover destination

First hike through the snowy Höllental valley and then relax in the thermal bath – this can be done in the small health resort in Upper Franconia. Snow is almost 100% guaranteed because it usually starts to thaw much later here than in the rest of Franconia.

The AltmĂĽhltalweg trail

Spectacular and blissfully convenient: The "AltmĂĽhltalweg" that runs between Pappenheim and Treuchtlingen is a trail with added convenience, as it leads from station to station.
Discover destination

For those of you who want to take it easier when winter hiking, this hike is perfect – mainly flat, but also extremely varied.  

Dillberg: Hiking with excellent views

Idea for a day trip with a change of air: the Dillberg. Enjoy the view of the Nuremberg region on the border between Upper Palatinate and Franconia!
Discover destination

This winter hike follows snow-covered forest paths over the Dillberg hill and past the mysterious Bucher Höhle caves that were carved out of the sandstone between the First and Second World Wars.  

Spectacular: a hike through the Partnachklamm gorge

If you want to experience that canyon feeling, you don't have to travel far. Near Garmisch, less than 1.5 hours from Munich, the wild and romantic Partnachklamm awaits.
Discover destination

Waterfalls frozen into ice sculptures. The snow sparkles in the sun's rays. Glistening icicles as big as a person. Winter hiking in the Partnachklamm gorge is a magical experience.

Rambling in the Maisinger Canyon near Starnberg

Traces from the ice age: To the south-west of Starnberg lies the Maisinger Canyon, eroded by the last ice age.
Discover destination

Pack your ice skates – for those of you who have still got plenty of energy to burn after a romantic winter hike along the frozen stream, you can pirouette elegantly or play a game of ice hockey on the frozen Lake Maising.
