Holidays in winter

Skiing, cross-country skiing & more

Immerse yourself during your winter holiday in Unken in the calming silence that surrounds our Hotel Dietrichshorn. This is the ideal place to relax, recharge your batteries and get to know the quiet side of winter while cross-country skiing in the Heu Valley and with winter hikes. Start a meditative snowshoe hike right from our front door. Enjoy the winter landscape without any hustle and bustle on a ski tour – take the tour skis from the front door up to the mountain and experience a ski run over untouched deep snow slopes all the way back.

And finally, a winter holiday in the Saalach Valley also has to include a certain amount of fun, cosiness and mountain hut magic! A toboggan run on holiday is fun for the whole family! The Hochalm natural toboggan run in Unken and the illuminated toboggan run from Maria Kirchental down into the valley to St. Martin are therefore particularly essential sledding experiences. If there is enough snow, we offer our guests the opportunity to whiz down on our own toboggan run right next to our house!

There are many ways to make your winter holiday in Unken and the surrounding area a sporty one. During your holiday, get active in the fresh air with cross-country skiing, snow tubing, ice skating, curling, archery, horse riding or paragliding.

If you want to get to know the culture and customs of the region during your holiday, simply visit one of the many traditional events or one of the traditional festivals in the region in winter. You can also get to know other holidaymakers and locals at concerts or in a museum and learn interesting things about the region.

Many catered ski huts, inns and restaurants, which are also open for you in winter, guarantee rustic cosiness.
