Cross-country holiday in Vorarlberg

Magical trails around Hotel Plattenhof

Breathe in the clear winter air. Breathing and movement in rhythmic harmony. Cross-country skiing is a special kind of nature experience. It activates body and mind in a positive and persistant way.

This sport is rightly celebrating a comeback: More and more health-conscious people are devoting themselves to the Nordic fitness sport, which burns calories and enriches the soul. And especially in times of pandemic, when we spend an above-average amount of time indoors, this moving fresh-air cure, which incidentally strengthens the immune system, is particularly good for us.

Trails right at the Hotel
  • the good is sometimes quite near! As in the case of freshly tracked cross-country trails which passes by our hotel. 
  • more than 27 km of free trails for the classic and skating style
  • from flat to a soft climb, spiked with sprints and descents
