Ski slopes and more mountain funOne of the biggest perks of this winter resort is the fact that the ski slopes of the village are connected to those of the surrounding area. This makes for the opportunity of skiing in the largest ski area in Austria. However, skiing isn't the only possible winter sports in these stunning mountains. You will be surprised by the many possibilities Ellmau will give you!
Cross-country excellenceEllmau is a paradise for cross-country skiers. You will find over 80 kilometres of perfectly groomed trail, of which some require a little more effort than others. Making a cross-country ski tour will open you up to beautiful nature reserves and breathtaking views. Some of the trails are illuminated at night, in which you can then test your biathlon skills using a laser gun. Cross-country skiing is exhausting, so after a long day you can relax in your comfortable B&B from Bed and Breakfast Ellmau.
Child and beginners friendlyLike many ski areas, Ellmau offers everything needed for a trip with children or beginners. The slopes offer all kinds of levels, ranging from beginner to professional. The area also offers lessons, given in as many languages as possible to make it more accessible for children. You will also find special practice fields with practice lifts for the youngest among us.
Other winter activitiesA winter holiday is not complete without an evening of tobogganing, something that Ellmau offers extensively. The 4.5-kilometre-long toboggan run is illuminated until midnight and brings you back to the village, where you will find your freshly made bed in an accommodation from Bed and Breakfast Ellmau. Another popular winter activity is to go snow tubing in the spectacular mountains.
