For example, the vast practice area outside the hotel is especially popular with skiing newbies, sledgers and anyone wanting to let off some steam on the snow.
Whether you’re traversing frozen water or the deep snow of the Ehrwald winter landscape, there are numerous ways to enjoy action-packed antics during your stay with us. Sledging fans can expect rapid descents and sharp bends, as well as some gentle slopes. While the beginner-friendly sledging hill – with conveyor belt – is right outside the family hotel, you’ll pick up a bit more speed on the easy Brettalm sledge run and the intermediate Bärenritt run in Berwang.
Twice a week, there’s also the opportunity to zoom down the Zugspitze sledge run under the light of the stars (and the floodlights). It’s enormous fun that simply can’t be missed on a holiday to Tyrol! Sledges can be hired from us at the Tirolerhof.
An activity that requires just as much balance and body awareness as sledging is ice skating. From the natural ice rink in Bichlbach to the artificial rink in Ehrwald, the Zugspitz Arena is transformed in winter into a paradise for all ice princesses and blade kings. And those who have already perfected their pirouettes can put their skills to the test with a game of ice stock sport, which is a traditional Tyrolean variation on curling.
Why should families with small children, grandparents and those looking to relax choose to spend a winter holiday here? Because the plateau at 1,000 metres above sea level where the Tirolerhof is located is known as the Ehrwalder Becken nature reserve. And what does that mean? The basin is an exciting natural gem, and because of its gentle inclines, it’s ideal for laid-back exploration and strolls, even with a pushchair.
In addition to the 60 kilometres of cleared hiking trails, the varied landscape at the foot of the Zugspitze offers a wealth of options for cross-country skiing, with the Zugspitz Arena boasting an impressive 130 kilometres of cross-country ski trails. There’s sure to be a trail for every member of the family! The almost four-kilometre Ehrwald-Moosloipe trail and almost three-kilometre, snow-covered Ehrwald-Golf Rundloipe are among the easiest routes. Snowshoeing will allow you to get to know the natural surroundings of Ehrwald in a really special way, diving into a fascinating world of rejuvenation infused with nature. You can also embark on a tour of the most beautiful places around Ehrwald with trained guides, which we highly recommend.
Anyone wanting to take a look behind the scenes of the perfectly prepared pistes in the Tyrolean Zugspitz Arena will love a ride on a snow groomer across the Ehrwald slopes – no matter how old you are. Experience the life of a hero of the slopes as the co-pilot of a snow groomer, where you’ll find out about the 390-strong fleet of tracked vehicles and their day-to-day work. Action of a different kind awaits at the Ehrwald snow castle. This cool adventure playground is located right next to the Tirolerhaus mountain restaurant in the Ehrwalder Alm resort.
