In the winter.

It has been snowing for two days now, hea­vi­ly… big fluffy flakes…
The Bre­gen­zer­wald lies under a soft, white blan­ket. The vil­la­ge has grown quie­ter, less busy; move­ment is slower, con­tours sof­ter, peop­le more at peace (one ima­gi­nes). Tomor­row the sun will bla­ze down from a blue sky, smi­ling on Hit­ti­s­au and cares­sing the faces of slee­ping guests in the Kro­ne until they wake. And soon the down­hill and cross-country ski­ers, serious wal­kers and gent­le amblers will set off for their respec­ti­ve domains of pow­der slo­pes, cross-country tracks and silent win­try countryside.

Cross-Country Skiing

Clo­se by the hotel you can join the 42-km (27-mile) cir­cuit for begin­ners, com­pe­tent ski­ers and pro­fes­sio­nals, clas­si­cal and ska­ting style. Sam­ple the joys of win­ter on the sun­ny vil­la­ge cir­cuit (3 km) and when you are rea­dy fol­low the 42 km of the bor­der coun­try loipe.

winter hiking

Not ever­yo­ne can be spor­ty. All the same, even a short walk can be rewar­ding. The win­ter ramb­ling path glis­tens ent­i­cin­gly at the Kro­ne front door and is just right for the many who enjoy an easier walk. Even the pram with your youn­gest can trund­le along with you. And of cour­se the­re are lots of win­ter rou­tes open to the more ener­ge­tic walkers.

Snowshoe Rambles

There’s not­hing qui­te like the magic of a snow­shoe ram­ble, say our guests – whe­ther you fol­low the river or ascend the hills­i­de, by day or in the moon­light… Hit­ti­s­au lays on regu­lar intro­duc­to­ry cour­ses, and local out­door shops have snow­shoes for hire. For anything else you need to know, and to arran­ge boo­kings, ask for Anna at the Kro­ne recep­ti­on desk.

Ski Touring

Deep in unspoilt coun­try­si­de with fox and hare for com­pa­ny, the Krone’s guests find delight­ful small-scale ski tours avail­ab­le from the Leck­ner Val­leyand Och­sen­la­ger, a far cry from the hard-beaten Alpi­ne cir­cuits. You can get a gui­de for (human) com­pa­ny or explo­re on your own: details at the Krone’s recep­ti­on desk.

Bobsleighing

The­re are several bobs­leighruns wit­hin easy reach – try the Hit­tis­berg, Hoch­hä­de­rich or Roten­berg faci­li­ties. Your down­hill pro­jec­ti­le awaits. And tea and cake for the rosy-cheeked retur­ning speed­sters too …

Skiing and Snowboarding

Hittisau’s local moun­tain, the Hit­tis­berg, has a ski-lift a short distance away from the Kro­ne. Or you could pop over for an hour in the after­noon. And the Hoch­hä­de­rich (with its child-friendly chair-lift) is only 10 minu­tes away by car.

Only a litt­le fur­ther away, still wit­hin easy reach for the Krone’s guests, are the Bal­der­schwang ski slo­pes (15 min.) and tho­se of the upper Bre­gen­zer­wald (25 min. plus). Talk to Ange­li­na at recep­ti­on. Talk to Ange­li­na at reception.

Horse-drawn Sleigh Rides

Perhaps you fan­cy gli­ding like an olden-times Czar or Cza­ri­na over the win­ter land­s­cape, sun bea­ming down and sleigh bells jing­ling mer­ri­ly …? – Just ask at the Krone’s recep­ti­on desk.
