When the Waldhof Golf Course is covered in a glistening blanket of snow and its ponds freeze over, it is magically transformed into the Waldhof Winter World - a winter fun and action paradise and a fantastic winter adventure playground for snow-lovers of all ages.
This is what you can expect:
magic carpet lift for easy and comfortable ascent
tobogganing, sledging and snow-biking
snow-tubing on the hotel's own special tubing run
And if you need a rest from all that icy entertainment, you can warm up in the Waldhof Alm mountain hut restaurant with a mug of steaming tea or punch and satisfy the hunger you worked up on the slopes with home-made Austrian cheese noodles (Kasnocken) or fluffy chunky-chopped pancakes (Kaiserschmarrn) – The Waldhof Alm is a true winter fairy tale paradise.
Opening times for Waldhof's Winter World:

By foot it is just a short 15-minute, up-hill walk. If you'd rather drive, you can get there in a couple of minutes and there are plenty of parking spaces available.
By the way; when the hotel Ebner's Waldhof takes a break and closes, so too does the Waldhof Alm.
