Winterberg in the winter

Winter sports in Winterberg

Winterberg is known as an important tourist attraction. Especially in winter it is a popular destination for winter sports enthusiasts. Winterberg is located at a relatively snow-sure height of 668 meters. Unlike the Alps, but so popular because of its good accessibility (only a two-hour drive from the Dutch border), the small-scale nature and therefore the friendly atmosphere.

Dozens of ski lifts provide access to a variety of ski slopes. The runs are of medium length and varied steepness, so that beginners and advanced skiers can enjoy skiing here. Modern snow systems ensure that the slopes are and remain snowy.


Need a real adrenaline rush? Then visit one of the fastest bobsleigh runs in the world, where you will hit the track at a speed of 130 kilometers per hour. In the presence of a professional driver you can complete the 1600 meter course within 1 minute.

Ski jump

The St. Georg ski jump is used actively in both winter and summer. Nevertheless, you can also climb the ramp for a fee of € 1 per person.


Enjoy the most beautiful winter walks in Winterberg! In the vicinity it is full of hiking trails; long distances, short distances, uphill or on flatter terrain. In short: you can determine the intensity of your walk yourself. You can inquire at the Tourist Information which walking routes best suit your level and / or needs.


Several swimming pools are available in the Winterberg area. When you stay in one of our apartments at Am Waltenberg, you can of course use the swimming pool in the apartment complex!


It remains fun: a game of bowling with family or friends. Fun and activity are combined on the bowling alley. In Winterberg you can go to Bowlhaus Winterberg, an 8-lane bowling center. Located close to the railway station, so easily accessible, even without a car.
