When the glistening ice crystals turn the Passau Land region into a winter wonderland, both adults and children are drawn into the snow. Enjoy the silence and calmness of the Bavarian Forest by taking a winter hike, cross-country skiing or a snowshoe excursion or stay active by going downhill skiing, snowboarding, ice-stick shooting – or also by just staying near the toboggan hill located in front of your door: Here, the right wintertime adventure is available no matter what your taste may be.
For beginners, the Geiersberg Children’s Skiing World is just the right place. Experienced skiers adore the nearby skiing resort, Hochficht, in Austria with its 13 ski slopes, 3 four-seater chair lifts and 7 other ski-lift systems.
Half-pipes and boarder camps ensure snowboarding fun; specially-prepared toboggan slopes add to your holiday being suitable for children. The frozen-over natural ponds create a romantic mood when skating in the calm and silence of nature. In addition, you can take relaxing winter hikes away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in Europe’s largest connected forest area. Tips on snowshoe excursions and related GPS data can be found here.
The thermal spas in the region offer welcomed relaxation after a day in the snow. The skiing region at the border triangle of Bavaria-Upper Austria-Bohemia is a scenic dreamland and particularly popular among families with children.
In 2013, Dr Friedrich Hettler from the newspaper the “Bayerischen Staatszeitung” visited the snow-covered Passau Land region and was enchanted. The travel report can be found here.
