Cross-country skiing is optimal for endurance and wellness athletes. And for this reason attracts many newcomers. At special cross-country courses you learn how to handle cross-country skis in next to no time and can soon start to discover the pleasures of the loipe.

ICE-SKATING AND CURLING
For those who are searching for a relaxing alternative to fun on the piste. In each of the regions, well-groomed natural and artificial ice-skating rinks invite you to relaxed gliding and sliding in a scenic location.
Even more action on the ice
Whoever wants an extra portion of fun on the ice should try his luck on the numerous curling lanes. One of the oldest and simplest kinds of ice sport, curling is the ideal opportunity to relax amongst friends or to come into contact with the local people. And above all, to prove strength and skill at the popular guest tournaments.
SNOW SHOE WALKING
Do you love the tranquillity and remoteness of the countryside? Then a snowshoe hike is exactly what you are looking for! During one of the guided tours, which are offered all winter long in the regions of Ski amadé, you will trudge uphill across sun-drenched hillsides and through glistening snows. The animals of the forest were the only creatures here before you, as evidenced by the tracks you may run across from time to time.

Geocaching is a modern treasure hunt using a GPS device. The coordinates for the caches are exchanged via the website www.hochkoenig.at/muehlbach or at geocaching.com. It’s a global game and everyone is invited to participate. Believe it or not, world-wide there are already more than 1.5 million geocaches.
Basic Principle: People, hikers, families, children …. hide all kinds of nice little things, for example a notebook, pocket knife etc., in the so-called “caches”. The hiding place is then published in the form of coordinates posted on the Internet. Equipped with a GPS device, you can now set out on an exciting treasure hunt. When you find the treasure, you swap the treasure in the container for one of your own, log your visit and hide the container back in the same place you found it – for the next person who happens to come along …
Of course, when those treasures were hidden in Mühlbach in our Mountain Village of Animals, we also gave thought to the different capabilities of every one of our treasure hunters. That’s why you will find easy tours for families with children, but true adventurers and experienced geocachers will also be thrilled as well. In Mühlbach alone, over 50 of these treasures are hidden and waiting to be found by you (20 in Dienten). GPS equipment can be borrowed at no charge from the tourist office in Mühlbach!
