Ski holidays in Germany: Snow up your life!

Germany is often underestimated as a winter sports destination. And yet the ski areas give a big variety. The Alpine region nestled in southern Germany of course offers a wide range of ski areas, much to the delight of winter sports fans everywhere. Familial, little ski areas can be found in the Harz, the Black Forest, the Thurungian Forest and even in the North Rhine-Westphalian Sauerland.

Baden-Württemberg is especially known for its wonderfully diverse landscapes of the Black Forest, stretching from the Swabian Alb right down to Lake Constance. With regards to winter sports, the area is specially geared to families. Perfectly prepared pistes and modern lifts dominate the mostly smaller ski areas. The centre of it all is of course Baden-Württemberg's highest mountain, the Feldberg (1,493 m), which has a number of smaller ski areas grouped around its flanks. The Swabian Alb also offers great family-friendly ski areas with some diverse offers away from the pistes.

The Bavarian Forest is central Europe's largest forest with 6,000 km² of wooded area. In 1970 the national park Bavarian Forest was created which, together with the Bohemian Forest, forms the largest coherent forestal nature reserve in central Europe with a total span of 900 km². Besides of the Alpine region, this region is also known for its affinity to winter sports. Especially families will find exactly what they are looking for here. Those who prefer not to explore the Bavarian Forest on skis, can also go on a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride. The lovely castles and monasteries of the Bavarian Forest are definitively worth while a visit. Numerous restaurant and quaint huts, which offer regional as well as international culinary highlights, should be on your list of to-do's as well.

Harz

Harz

The Harz is the most Northern Mittelgebirge (low mountain range) in Germany. Even though the region cannot score with the highest mountain tops, there are, nevertheless, several small ski areas, which are great for beginners due to their gentle hillsides. However, not only Alpine skiers get their money's worth in the most popular areas at the Bocksberg, Wurmberg, Matthias-Schmidt-Berg, and Sonnenberg, but also those who like to do cross-country skiing as the Harz is known for its well-kept tracks. The biggest ski area lies at the highest mountain in Lower Saxony, the Wurmberg (971 m).

Saxony is a holiday state. With cities like Dresden, Leipzig and Chemnitz, its landscape dotted with castles and a rich music and theatre scene, Saxony has a lot to offer. But it hasn't only established itself as a destination for culture fans but also for winter sport lovers. The Erz Mountains and the Vogtland have ski areas with guaranteed snow, which are especially popular with families due to their vast offers of winter sports activities. The Fichtel Mountain near Oberwiesenthal is the centre of Saxon winter sports and at the same time the largest ski area. The only interconnected ski area of Saxony is the Ski World Schöneck, which is also a certified family ski area. A variety of smaller ski areas are suitable most of all for beginners.
