Cross-country skiing

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

Worth knowing:

The Dachstein panorama trail - the longest glacier trail in the world: stretches over 2,700 metres amidst an unforgettable mountain backdrop 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 enjoy the magic of winter tobogganing both during the day and in the late evening hours. The toboggan run on the Galsterberg offers a 5km long natural toboggan run where you can experience fun and energetic laps with your loved ones. The Galsterberg toboggan run is also open at night and offers a very special experience in the colourful light.

Hochwurzen toboggan run

The Hochwurzen to boggan run is one of the longest toboggan runs in the Alps. From the Hochwurzenhütte along the Hochwurzenstraße from the summit to the valley station of the Hochwurzen summit lift, there is 7km of tobogganing fun on offer.

Christmas idyll in Filzmoos

A winter fairytale in the snow-covered Filzmoos snowy landscape - exclusively for hotel guests on selected days during Advent!
Enjoy this wonderful experience with us! Wrapped up in warm blankets, we enjoy the unique winter landscape and the impressive mountain backdrop 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 clothing. Once you arrive at the Hofalmen, a torch-lit circular route leads to the Almsee lake, past the Christmas cot, carol singers and much more. Of course, there is also mulled wine, children's punch and Christmas treats.

Torchlight hike

Enjoy the snow-covered nature around the hotel. In the idyllic snowy landscape, we trudge through the snow with our torches, with a view of the valley, where we can see the illuminated villages and perhaps even the imposing Dachstein.


Fatbike experience in the snow

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

The trails and designated winter paths in the Schladming - Dachstein region offer an almost endless paradise for this extraordinary winter pleasure. Well wrapped up and 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 magical Ramsau. After a few warm-up exercises, your body will acclimatise to the ambient temperature, your muscles will dance the winter sambas and there will be absolutely nothing standing in the way of a guided exploration tour on a fat bike. As a reward, there is of course a stop at one of our rustic huts. Just as it should be.

One, two, three... all packed together: once perfectly planned family and team fun. And off you go to winter bike paradise. First you cycle and then off home. Then you can savour our comprehensive wellness and spa offer to the full.
