Off-piste winter fun

Into the great snowy outdoors! The Murau-Murtal also offers a huge variety of off-piste activities. Why not spend a day away from the slopes! You can pull your sled up the hill and whizz your way down. Or, if you want something a little more romantic, you can stroll along one of our beautiful winter hiking trails.


Enjoy leisurely exercise in the sparkling winter countryside, a unique atmosphere and fun that you haven't experienced since childhood: On a winter hike or snowshoe hike through the thick white snow.
On a torch-lit hike or a horse-drawn sleigh ride followed by refreshments in a cosy mountain hut.
While ice skating, Austrian curling or sledging. The rapid descent into the valley is reward for each step you tread on the way up. On prepared sledging slopes, such as on the Kreischberg and in the Gaal, or on natural sledding slopes, such as in Ranten, on the Grebenzen or in Hohentauern, where there is a sledding taxi to take you back up to the top. Ice rinks, lakes and ponds offer visitors the opportunity to go dancing on ice.
