Winter Activities around Waxenstein

Skiing & Snowboarding in winter.

When winter in Grainau slowly awakes and the first snow gently falls then there is nothing more to stop the downhill skiers and cross-country skiers and snowboarders. The glittering snow entices everyone outside and also invites us to long “winter wonderland” tours under a beautiful blue winter sky and finest fresh air.

We are located right at the heart, embedded amongst the finest ski areas.

The Garmisch-Partenkirchen area has five ski regions and more than 40 lifts. Here is also the highest mountain in Germany, the Zugspitze with bombastic snow pleasure from November to the end of May. At almost 3.000 m above sea level, ten ski lifts bring you to 23 km of best prepared ski slopes.

The area between Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alpspitze has more than 20 cable cars and ski lifts and is the biggest ski region of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Here is also the world famous “Kandahar-Strecke”, where every year the downhill ski World Cup takes place. This is regarded as one of the five most difficult in the world.

For all cross-country ski enthusiasts: around Garmisch-Partenkirchen there is a huges network of tracks (Loipen). You can start off here in Grainau, right next to the hotel. Start off into the wonderful world of peace and snow - directly at the foot of the Zugspitze.


Children’s eyes light up - even if they are suddenly overtaken on the left! Tobogganging is available everywhere in our region and of course we are pleased to advise you at any time about toboggan leasing. We have the well known children’s rhyme in our ears: “Aus der Bo Zitronamo…..“. Racing happily downhill


For almost the whole year you can skate in the Garmisch Olympia Ice Stadium, open from July until April. In winter there is a super natural ice course in Grainau. It is really a very special experience to skate on a frozen mountain lake, e.g. Eibsee or Riessersee.

You can also dare, when the weather is right, to go out onto the ice and perform your movements! Do you still remember the little pirouettes when you were young?

Snow Shoe Trekking:

If you like going on foot, then simply strap on your snow shoes and take a walk across untouched fields of snow. You leave your tracks behind you but in front of you is total relaxation, maybe conquering something new.

Snow Shoe Trekking has a long tradition. It is ideally suited for beginners or for children over 10. Fun for young and old is guaranteed on two avalanche-safe terrains and 2 super tours at different levels of difficulty. Take a breather and warm up with a big cup of hot chocolate or a glass of hot punch? Now you have all the energy you need for your return trip to ROMANTIK ALPENHOTEL WAXENSTEIN.

Ice Climbing:

Climbing at icy heights is offered by Sportagentur” Total” for climbers looking for a challenge or something new. Are you in top fit condition and you have experience in mountain climbing? This could be absolutely perfect for you!
