Experience the magic of winter

Winter activities

From pleasure hikers to alpine skiers, cross-country skiers to freeriders, Alpenwelt Karwendel has something for everyone. After an extensive day of skiing, you can store your equipment in our ski cellar and then relax in our wellness area.


Carving on magnificent slopes

The Kranzberg family ski paradise takes you to skiing fun with 7 lifts.

There is also a ski park for the little ones to learn the right turns.

The Dammkar in the Karwendel attracts visitors with Germany's longest freeride descent.

Other ski areas in the immediate vicinity:

  • Garmisch Classic
  • Seefeld Rosshütte and Gschwandtkopf
  • Zugspitze glacier ski area

Touring skis

Powder paradises and summit bliss

The Kranzberg invites you to enjoy a leisurely ski tour. You can start your tour, which is around 3.7 km long and 450 meters in altitude, directly at the hotel.

The snow-covered Dammkar is more challenging and the alpine ski tour, which stretches over 7 kilometers and 1200 vertical meters, is always worthwhile.

More ski tours, for example:

  • High mouth
  • Stuibenhütte
  • Combing head
