Active through the winter in Lower Austria

When the day starts in the snow and ends in a leisurely atmosphere at the hut, you know that you have arrived in winter in Lower Austria.

The first snow does not just make children's eyes shine. When the thick snowflakes fall in a zig zag from the sky, we are already in the starting blocks. The skis are taken out of the cellar, the ski trousers are tested to see if they still fit this year, the snow height reports are checked.

Be the first to whizz down the slopes at sunrise inhaling the fresh winter air on the cross-country trails or warming the mittens on the warm stove bench  – hut romance included. The silence of the winter landscape is only interrupted by the crackling and crunching of snowshoes hiking comfortably uphill, step by step, next to the snow-covered trees. For all those who have renounced skiing, we have sussed out the perfect winter hiking trails for you. If you move a lot, you also need energy. And where do you get the energy faster than the incomparable poppy seed noodels that you certainly get nowhere better prepared than in the Waldviertel.

The winter secrets in Lower Austria are not buried under a thick blanket of snow. Look forward to the discovery.
