... in the largest Austrian ski area outside the Alps

Experience winter between three countries - nowhere is this better than in the Bohemian Forest, or more precisely in the Austrian Mühlviertel. Not far from Germany and the Czech Republic lies the Hochficht ski area, a real little paradise that guarantees much more than family-friendly fun on the slopes. Cross-country skiing, winter hiking, snowshoe hiking ... Winter dreams come true at Hochficht!

Nine lifts take winter sports enthusiasts from A to B in the Hochficht ski area. They are on their way on a total of 20 kilometres of pistes of varying degrees of difficulty. The analysis with the iSki-Tracker app reveals exactly which ones.

Young skiers will feel particularly at home in the two Kids Parks. Older children, teenagers and the young at heart can go to the Fun Park or the Fun Slope.

Other highlights are the race tracks and the night skiing on two evenings a week.

Families, groups, school classes and clubs: They all ski in the Hochficht ski area at reduced prices. Take a look at the ticket overview to see what you can expect to pay.
