Entertainment, challenges, thrills – you’ll get more than enough of that from these winter destinations in Bavaria.
Climbing in winter becomes a particularly challenging activity when it comes to frozen waterfalls and pointy icicles. Experienced instructors from the Bergschule Oberstdorf mountain school will show you the ropes – including safety training and equipment.
Instead of wheels, the snow bikes in Immenstadt im Allgäu feature skids. From elegant weaving to daring schusses and bold drifting, anything is possible. The best thing about it is that the whole thing might look fast and action-packed, but snow biking is actually easy to learn and very safe after a quick induction. The risk of injury is minimal and it’s easy on the joints.
A paradise for free stylers: the snow park in Nesselwang features a number of obstacles, jumps and mogul slopes for action fans big and small looking for a particular challenge in the snow. The snow park has become a meeting point for snow sport enthusiasts: the greats of skiing and snowboarding meet here to train and compete. If you want to take it slow in the beginning, you can simply watch the professionals.
In the winter, there's ways other than the slopes for adventure seekers to get down the mountain – paragliders being one of them. Paragliding doesn’t only provide a rush of adrenaline and beautiful views in the summer: if you love soaring up in the air, we recommend a wintry tandem flight from Blomberg mountain. Travel up in a chair lift before soaring at a lofty height over ice-covered tree tops and snowy slopes.
Storms and sleet – in short, wintry weather is simply awful. For adrenaline junkies this doesn’t necessarily mean vegging out in an armchair in front of the television with tea and a blanket. Instead they can simply immerse themselves in their very own action film and hunt opponents with laser phasers in the futuristic game environment at the laser tag arena in Würzburg. Between neon-coloured lights and fierce battles, the foul weather is quickly forgotten.
