Archery Course Glemmerhof

On the „hunt” in winter!

Why archery?

Archery is a fascinating sport which balances both body and spirit. Once out in the fresh air and the woodlands, the stresses of everyday life are soon forgotten. The tranquillity and natural surroundings enable you to focus on the targets and experience inner peace.

equipment & timing

As the archery course is in the forest and there are numerous narrow hiking trails, sturdy footwear such as hiking boots are recommended. Good footwear also ensures a safe stand. The path is well signposted and easy to find, but please allow plenty of time! For all 28 stations, a group of four would need approx. 3-4 hours.

A pleasant surprise: At the halfway station, you will find an area with cool drinks and snacks.

Weather?

The course, which is situated mostly in the forest, can be used in almost any weather conditions and is open all year round.  

Ice skating & ice hockey

Rent your ice skates for free

It doesn’t always have to be snow - even ice makes a lot of fun in winter. During the winter months, the Viehhofen tennis courts are converted into an outdoor ice skating rink, which even has floodlights.

SPECIAL SERVICE: Ice skates can be rented free of charge at the club house at the tennis court.

Those that particularly enjoy ice skating, can also try out the ice rink in Zell am See or the frozen lake Zell (when conditions permit).

Cross-country

An adventure in a winter paradise

On cross-country skis, you will see the area around Viehhofen in a totally different light. Enjoy nature whilst gliding through a winter paradise, while at the same time burning calories!

In principle, there are two different styles of cross-country skiing: the classical technique and skating style. Both techniques have their own appeal and contribute to the sport being one that is appealing to both the young as well as the young at heart.

In the neighbouring villages around Viehhofen, you will find countless cross-country ski trails to suit every ability. The regions of Zell am See-Kaprun as well as Saalfelden Leogang have built-up an impressive cross-country network with circular trails, for the most avid cross-country enthusiasts, some trails are even illuminated at night. A special recommendation for children is the Fun & Snowpark at the ‘Langlaufzentrum Ritzensee’ in Saalfelden: Here children can learn the technique of cross-country skiing thorough the art of play, by overcoming various obstacles while at the same time having lots of fun.

There are also many cross-country trails in the nearby villages of Maishofen and Saalbach Hinterglemm. We recommend that newcomers to cross-country skiing learn from a professional instructor. There are cross-country ski school courses on offer in Zell am See, Kaprun and Saalfelden.

Winter hikes and snow-shoeing

A walk through a winter wonderland

Hiking in winter? Yes of course! The gentle grass mountains around the area of Viehhofen offer beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and are simply a paradise for hikers - both in summer and in winter.


Ski touring in the Glemm valley

The true charm of winter

Although Viehhofen is surrounded by first-class ski resorts, more and more winter enthusiasts are being enticed by the sport of ski touring. The tranquillity of the ascent, the feeling of satisfaction having reached an Alpine summit, as well as amazing views of the surrounding mountain world and then the descent in powder snow…ski touring is a charming sport.

The mountains surrounding Viehhofen offer perfect opportunities for ski touring. The wide slopes of the Kitzbüheler Alps and Glemm valley offer a ski tour to suit every ability.
