Oberammergau lies in the Bavarian Alps in the Zugspitz region. The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is well-known beyond the borders for its Passion plays, the Pilatushaus, the Kölblhaus and the wood carvings. In winter the ski areas Aktiv Arena Kolbensattel, Hörnle, Laber and Steckenberg offer a wide range of activities for skiers and snowboarders. Very good beginners terrain, demanding slopes for advanced winter sports fans as well as the steepest freeride downhill in Germany, the “Nordhang- ski route” awaits the winter sports enthusiasts. The snowpark Oberammergau at the Wanklifts offers numerous boxes, rails, kickers and a Big Air. Starting from January, one can enjoy the floodlit Night-Session with cool beats from 19:00-22:00 . The 12 cross-country circuits in the Ammergau Alps are unique and together they form a system of 180 km of cross-country trails. A dream for all lovers of Nordic sports. Other activities, such as snowshoeing and winter hiking on well cleared winter hiking trails through the Ammer Valley, allow you to enjoy winter away from the pistes. Here you can also visit sights such as Linderhof Castle or monastery Ettal. Another highlight of the winter events is the King Ludwig Run, which always takes place on the first weekend of February. Germany’s largest cross-country skiing event with over 4000 participants is held over a distance of 50 km as well as 23 km in classical style and free technique.
