Winter at Gitschtal

Holiday homes Strohschneider

Winter in the Gitschtal is a very special time. Not only skiers appreciate our area.

The quiet valley and the wide white fields let you come to rest.
Far away from the hustle and bustle you will experience a winter like in a picture book. 

Recharge your batteries in the fresh, clear winter air.

Whether on a winter hike with or without snowshoes or on an enjoyable tour on one of the numerous surrounding cross-country ski trails.

 Enjoy a toboggan run, perhaps with a stop for refreshments, 

or go ice skating on Carinthia’s largest natural ice rink, Lake Weissensee.
