The icing on the cake is a trip through this natural work of art during an evening hike by torchlight.
- In scaling the Walmendingerhorn, Ifen and Kanzelwand, summiteers have many opportunities to enjoy their hobby even more with wonderful views. Here hiking becomes a real treat .
- Other interesting excursions and ideas for the perfect holiday are for instance, for the daredevils what about an excursion on our new mountain bikes, a climbing tour in the Bärenfalle high ropes park or a journey on the Alpine Coaster toboggan run.

The 2 areas in the Kleinwalsertal ski area score points with 120 challenging kilometres of pistes. There are also exciting deep snow pistes and three snow parks: Crystal Ground, Wood Ground and Almdudler Fellhornpark.
47 Cable cars and chair lifts can be used with just one ski pass, which means nothing stands in the way of you enjoying a variety-filled day on the pistes. We are happy to provide information about the latest prices for the different cards.
As an alternative programme for non-skiers, snowboarders and freeriders, we suggest a snow-shoe hike or a cross-country skiing session in the unspoilt alpine realm. A demanding day in the snow can be very well combined with a romantic time together as a couple or with the whole family, with a horse-drawn sleigh ride or adventurous fun on a dog-sled ride.
