Numerous activities during your winter holiday in Flachau
Everyone who likes to skate on skids into the valley, is also in the right place in Flachau. Four toboggan runs with varying degrees of difficulty await daring tobogganists who can not be distracted from the trail. For toboggan enthusiasts, there is not only a wonderful panoramic view from above, but many toboggan runs with cozy refuges in the middle of the mountains: toboggan run Brennhütte and Munzenhof, Sattelbauer, Winterbauer and Winklalm.
For those who are looking for an intensive nature experience, we recommend a snowshoe hike far away from cleared winter hiking trails. Who does not want to pull the first track on fresh snow-covered meadows and enjoy the silence and beauty of the Flachau winter landscape? Alone or on a guided tour, snowshoeing in fresh cold winter air is a real highlight. Snowshoeing can be practiced by anyone and provides a real alternative to winter skiing and snowboarding. Incidentally, there are snowshoe hikes in full moon nights for true romantics!
If you really want to get going, you should try a Segway! Steer, accelerate and slow down by shifting your weight – a feeling of weightlessness, levitation and freedom. Due to the extra large wheels with good profile not only the driving experience is unique, there is always a progress through the beautiful Flachau winter landscape, whether if it is storming or snowing! An ultimate nature experience that not only provides a neat adrenalin kick, but is casual and fun at the same time. Anyone can learn to ride a Segway in a few easy steps, and then, either alone or on a guided tour, explore the winter in Flachau almost weightlessly.
Fresh cold winter air, sparkling snow crystals, a fantastic mountain scenery and crunching fresh snow under your shoes – a perfect backdrop for a hike in the wonderfully white landscape. For winter hiking, no elaborate equipment is required, good footwear and warm clothing are enough to discover the natural landscape of the Flachautal, which is enveloped in white splendor. However, you should have a little change with you, because along the 40 kilometers of cleared trails, there are many quaint huts, which you should have seen from the inside!
Snowbiking is an exciting combination of biking and skiing and is certainly one of the most unforgettable holiday highlights. It’s a different way to carve, cruise or drift, and it’s relatively easy and fast to learn. A short workshop with a professional trainer is enough to get you down the slope! Snowbiking is not a completely new trend sport, but the technical development of the popular ski bobsleigh, which incidentally was invented in 1949 by Engelbert Brenter. The modern snowbikes of today are characterized by their low weight and the suspension technology and allow a intuitive control of the device for more driving pleasure.
With tires up to 4.8 inches wide and air pressure around 0.5 bar the trendy Fatbikes make biking possible even in winter. Some sports schools offer this trend sport in Flachau. As equipment, you only need athletic clothing and sturdy shoes. Guides provide a special bike experience in the snow and offer guided tours, for example to Sattelbauer, Winterbauer or Schloss Höch.
Curling is one of the oldest and most traditional sports in the Salzburger Land. Curling is a winter sport that combines dexterity and movement in fresh air in a very sociable way. In the “Seestüberl” in Flachau everyone can this winter sport!

Telemarking is a downhill ski technique originally based in Norway, where only the tips of the ski boots are fixed by a binding. This original form of skiing offers a skiing experience of a different kind and guarantees all seasoned winter sports enthusiasts an unmistakable driving pleasure. Whether carving or driving in deep snow – everything is possible. Courses and equipment are offered by the ski schools in Flachau.
Do you fancy a dose of thrill? Then a ride on the Alpine Coaster Lucky Flitzer is just right for you. The toboggan lift takes you up to the start of this unique Alpine roller coaster. And then?
