Beginners and experts alike will find the perfect conditions in the Allgäu and Vorarlberg regions. Groomed trails with different levels of difficulty await lovers of both skiing styles.
Cross-country skiing in the western Allgäu
The western Allgäu is home to 200 km of trails through the snowy landscape. The 50-km classic “Supertrail” provides skiers with wonderful views of the Nagelfluh range and the Bregenz Forest between the Waldsee and the Alpsee. It is a very special experience for fit, experienced skiers.
Lindau is the ideal starting point
The nearest classic trail is on the Pfänder mountain. The trail runs for 7 km from the Pfänderalpe to Eichenberg-Letze and back. More extensive skiing areas are just a 30 to 50-minute drive away in the Vorarlberg. Here, more than 300 kilometres of trails wend their way through the glistening snowy landscapes.
Local skiers love the 9-km Panorama Trail in the Swiss cross-country skiing resort of Heiden. The name says it all: your sporting prowess is rewarded by amazing views over Lake Constance and the Alpstein. There is also a 3.5 km trail for those who prefer the skating technique. And a floodlit 1.65-km night trail means you can keep skiing until 9.30 in the evening.
