Flat trails for leisurely XCers
and beginners in the village of Tauplitz and Bad Mitterndorf
Located at the foot of the mighty Grimming is a broad valley with Bad Mitterndorf at its center. This is a landscape that inspires and is a unique source of energy. In winter, there is sunshine in abundance and rarely any fog. On the flat trails, beginners and casual skiers feel right at home – for example, exploring the route which circles the placid Ödensee in Pichl-Kainisch, with beautiful passages through riparian countryside and forest. The Krungl Trail features easy up- and downhills, taking you by the legendary Kulm ski-jumping hill, as do the trails in the charming mountain village of Tauplitz. Other flat trails lead through the countryside around Bad Mitterndorf or the GrimmingTherme.
Alpine trails for more
The alpine trails on the Tauplitzalm are always
snowy, with selective climbs and downhills for sporting challenges. Which is
why this area is also used as a training center for world and Olympic champions.
In fact, in November you might very well find yourself skiing in their tracks. From
Christmas until Easter, the locals and our guests once again have the alpine
trails of the Tauplitzalm firmly in their own hands, with the Nordic elite are
busy going head-to-head in serious competition elsewhere. The
panoramic views of hundreds of mountain peaks in combination with brilliant sunshine make this a simply marvelous experience. Fog almost never pays us a visit. Incidentally: The Sturzhahn Trail is named after a mountain on the edge of the Tauplitzalm – it was first climbed by mountaineering icon Heinrich Harrer and is popular for its climbing tours in summer.
