Winter in the Wipptal

The holiday region of Wipptal, with its side valleys, is an insider tip for all those who want to spend a holiday far away from the hustle and bustle.

A winter for active people & nature lovers

White snow-covered peaks, meadows and forests, small, rustic villages: in the Wipptal, nestled between the Zillertal and Stubai Alps, you will still find a quiet, gentle winter world. Between the high mountains, nature lovers and winter sports enthusiasts in particular will be in their element.

In the Gschnitztal, where the Alpengasthof Hohe Burg is located, you can set off on beautiful ski tours or glide along the cross-country trails. Toboggan runs, winter and snowshoe hikes beckon. The small Bergeralm ski area and the Trins ski lift await skiers. 

A pristine winter world.
