The last leaves are gone, the days are short and the sun is resting after having worked overtime in the summer. But for many people, winter is still the best time of the year. And if you are not yet convinced of this, come to the Murtal region. Here winter is turned into ‘chilly summer’. And many activities don't even require the help of Mother Holle.
Red Bull Ring
You thought the Red Bull Ring goes into hibernation once the cold season has started? Not in the slightest! As soon as the Murtal is covered in a white blanket Austria’s Most Fantastic Leisure Destination is only just starting. This involves skis as well as old-fashioned tyres – for instance during the winter driving sessions at the Driving Center! Classic motorsports activities are also on the agenda, of course. The Red Bull Ring offers everything that makes ice and snow fun.
Snow shoe hiking
The snow crunches under your feet, you become one with the landscape and with every breath stress and everyday life fall off. Snow shoe hiking is the ‘slow food version’ among winter sports. Unique nature experiences included. Give it a try and hike the landscape without attempting steep inclines or prepare yourself for true ‘mountain challenges’ – our two ‘snow shoe hotels’ Hotel Hofwirt and Hotel G´Schlössl Murtal offer both in close proximity.
Negotiate mogul slopes at break-neck speed or enjoy a sunny day of skiing with your family. Our region offers the right slopes for every taste. Our ski resorts provide particularly fitting offers for families, people who want to return to skiing and those who enjoy relaxed skiing. With their fantastic runs and affordable prices they make skiing attractive again.
Cross-country skiing and biathlon
The region’s cross-country skiing slopes provide everything possible on two slim skis. From classic to skating style they provide something for every cross-country skier. And if Mother Holle doesn’t slack off and provides the Murtal region with enough snow, even the Red Bull Ring’s premises turn into cross-country skiing slopes.
