If you every arrive in Braunwald when it is deep in snow on a bright and beautiful winter’s day, you’ll know why it is often described as a ‘fairytale world’. Eight lifts are available to carry winter sports enthusiasts up to the Gumen mountain inn or the Seblen Ridge (both at 1900 m). 32 km of prepared pistes, ranging from easy to challenging, descend to the village. Winter hikers can choose from a 20 km-long footpath network and there is also a 4-km long cross-country ski trail. Naturally, the family-friendly resort of Braunwald has a sleigh trail and toboggan run, too.
