Neuschönau in winter

Winter hiking at the Bavarian Forest National ParkThe national park town of Neuschönau has quite a bit to offer in winter too!

Our hotel is the ideal starting point for all generations on your active winter holiday.

The start to the cross-country trail near the hotel out into the town’s and regional trails is a real winter treat for cross-country skiers. Hikes through the magical snowy winter forest with snow shoes or touring skis are also on the agenda. We are also offering a snowshoe tour with huskies for the first time.

Bayern Winterurlaub Bayerischer WaldIce skating, curling or a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride through the stunning wintry scenery promise a great deal of pleasure.

Neuschönau is one of the snowiest areas in the Bavarian Forest.
