Cross-country skiing in Bregenzerwald

Cross-country skiing is very popular as an alternative to alpine skiing or as a great way to get exercise and rejuvenate in the fresh air. It’s even better when the trails are as wonderfully groomed as those in Bregenzerwald.

The cumulative length of the cross-country ski trail network in Bregenzerwald is 300 km. It leads across flood plains, through snow-covered forests, over broad meadows, past birch groves and typical shingled wooden houses. In Sulzberg and Hittisau cross-border trails lead to Allgäu in Bavaria. The largest cross-country ski areas are those in Hittisau – Balderschwang (80) km, Au-Schoppernau (63 km) and Sulzberg-Oberreute (40 km). Both classic and skating cross-country ski trails are available.
