Cross-country skiing: Enjoy sport and recharge your batteries.

Cross-country skiing is more than just a healthy winter sport. Cross-country skiing means quietly gliding through a snowy forest and skating through sunny meadows with fresh snow. Cross-country skiing means arriving nature and recharging your batteries in a peaceful environment. The best thing about this sport is that not much equipment is required for it. The equipment can be hired in almost every Lower Austrian cross-country skiing region.

Day trip or a whole week?

The Wechsel region, Bärnkopf, St. Aegyd am Neuwalde and many other winter sports reports in Lower Austria are just waiting to be discovered by cross-country skiers. Our ski trails are extremely suitable for day trips thanks to their proximity to Vienna and other cities. However, those who wish to spend more time cross-country skiing or more time in these winter landscapes can also stay in one of our accommodation establishments. The advantage: Breakfast is served then you can get onto the ski trail right away.
