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.

Naturpark Altmühltal (www.naturpark-altmuehltal.de)

The Altmühltalweg trail

Spectacular and blissfully convenient: The "Altmühltalweg" 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: a hiking trail with wonderful views

Located in Nuremberg's hinterland, Dillberg hill has everything you could want for an enjoyable hike. A fantastic panorama and intriguing cave are just part of the experience.
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.  

Rambling in the Partnach Gorge

Walking along the Partnach Gorge (Partnachklamm) used to be perilous. But these days, there are safe and secure paths winding through this spectacular ravine.
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.
