Cross country skiing routes

Cross country skiing fun for all ages

Good news from Obertraun for the forthcoming winter season! Thanks to the installation of brand new, modern machinery , world class cross country ski trails (as well as skating and classic trails ) will be available.

The existing trail through the village of Obertraun, and especially the section through the Koppenwinkl Nature Reserve which is particularly loved by cross country skiiers on account of its outstanding natural beauty, has had to be made much wider to allow for the new machinery.

Builders from Obertraun have also had to work hard to widen narrow bridges and crossings. It has also been necessary to widen the path from Ebnersteg to the Dachsteinhof and back along the other side of the Traun. This has also meant that the beautiful winter hiking trail can be available continuously.
