Cross-country skiing

The Nature and Wellness Hotel Höflehner is situated not far from the centre of Nordic skiing - Ramsau am Dachstein. The sunny plateau of Ramsau invites you to cross-country ski at an altitude of 1,100 to 2,700 metres in beautiful natural surroundings. A cross-country skiing network of 220 kilometres awaits you, with a wide variety of difficulty levels.

Worth knowing:

The Dachstein Panoramaloipe - the longest glacier cross-country ski trail in the world: extends to 2,700m amidst unforgettable mountain scenery on the Dachstein Glacier. Time and again, the international elite of Nordic skiing flock to Ramsau to take advantage of the perfect training conditions.


Toboggan run on the Galsterberg

The Styrian Enns Valley invites you to go tobogganing in the winter magic, both during the day and in the late evening hours. The toboggan run at Galsterberg offers a 5km long natural toboggan run, where you can experience fun and swinging laps with your loved ones. The Galsterberg toboggan run is also open at night and offers a very special experience in the colourful glow of the lights.

Hochwurzen toboggan run

The Hochwurzen toboggan run is one of the longest toboggan runs in the Alps. From the Hochwurzen hut along the Hochwurzen road from the summit to the valley station of the Hochwurzen summit cable car, 7km of tobogganing fun is on offer.

Christmas idyll in Filzmoos

A winter fairy tale in the snow-covered Filzmoos snow landscape - exclusively for hotel guests on selected days in Advent!
Join us for this wonderful experience! Wrapped in warm blankets, we enjoy the unique winter landscape and the impressive mountain scenery from the carriage.

The sleigh ride starts in Filzmoos and takes guests to the Hofalmen. The sleigh ride takes about 1 hour - please wear warm clothes. Once you arrive at the Hofalmen, a torch-lit circular route leads to the Almsee lake, past the Christmas cot, orchestral brass bands and much more. Of course there is also mulled wine, children's punch and Christmas treats.

Torchlight hike

Enjoy the snowy nature around the hotel. In the idyllic snowy landscape we trudge through the snow with our torches, looking down into the valley at the illuminated villages and perhaps you will also recognise the imposing Dachstein.


Fatbike experience in the snow

Biking in winter? Yep... it's actually a lot of fun!

The trails and designated winter paths of the Schladming - Dachstein region offer an almost endless paradise for this extraordinary winter pleasure. Well wrapped up, accompanied by our bike guide Petra, you can explore the sunny side of the Dachstein on two wheels from a new perspective. Our bike guide Petra will take you and your loved ones to the enchanting Ramsau. With a few warm-up exercises, the body gets used to the ambient temperature, the muscles dance the winter samba and thus absolutely nothing stands in the way of a guided exploration tour by fatbike. As a reward, of course, there's a stop at one of our rustic huts. Just the way it should be.

One, two, three...packed together: one completely planned family and team fun. And off we go into the winter biking paradise. First we cycle and then we go home. Then you can enjoy our comprehensive wellness and spa offer to the full.
