Cross-country skiing fans have come to the right place. Around MY ALPENWELT Resort, there are numerous cross-country skiing options in the nearby towns of Ziller, Gerlos, Wald-Königsleiten, and Krimml-Hochkrimml. Here, beginners and advanced skiers can relax and enjoy the unique winter landscape and the wonderful nature of the Zillertal Arena.
The My Alpenwelt Resort is located at an elevation of 1,600 meters right next to the gondola. This means you can reach the ski slopes very comfortably and conveniently.
If you don't have your own skis, you can rent the right equipment from the rental shop across the way. There is also a ski school for beginners opposite the hotel. From now on, there are no more excuses: now it's time to hit the slopes!
Going downhill at full speed sounds pretty good, but maybe boards aren't your thing? Then grab a sled and venture out on the almost 1-kilometer long toboggan run in Königsleiten. For little tobogganers, the toboggan run at the Finkenhof in Wald, which has less gradient, is ideal. Sled rentals are available at Sport Hölzl and Sport Shop Rieder in Königsleiten.
Less fast, but at definitely as spectacular: on ski tours you will see that it doesn't always have to be downhill on skis. On special, fur-covered skis you will travel through the winter wonderland of the snowy Alps. This trendy sport's tour offering ranges from a leisurely hut tour to climbing a 3,000m peak in the Hohe Tauern.
The sport of snowbiking is growing and has become a real trendy sport in recent years with various disciplines such as freeriding, moto-style racing, freestyle, and much more. With the cool snowbikes, action-packed rides are not only a new winter sports alternative for extreme athletes but also ideal for beginners aged 6 and older. You can rent snowbikes from Unterwurzacher, across the way from MY ALPENWELT Resort.
Attention e-bike fans: here with us, you can live out your biking dream even in winter: going downhill on a snow bike is absolute fun for everyone aged 6 and older. There are curves like in summer, but of course they are much easier in the snow. If you like it even faster, you can use fat bikes. You can rent both at Unterwurzacher, across the way from MY ALPENWELT Resort.
Wrapped up snuggly, we head through quiet, snow-covered forests, and the peace and quiet is only broken by the bells on the horse-drawn carriage and the occasional snort - there's no more romantic way to get from A to B in the Alps than in a horse-drawn sleigh. The departure point is in Wald in Pinzgau with the Quehenberger family or at the Kreidl farm.
