Do you already know this part of paradise? The spectacular mountain view is worth a visit on its own. Replace stress, noise and hectic for recuperation in an unequalled mountain region of the Winklmoosalm. Regain strength and energy from nature.
The Winklmoos-Alm made its claim to fame as the home of “Gold-Rosi” Mittermaier, the 1979 multi-medal winner (two gold, one silver) in the alpine skiing events at the winter Olympics in Innsbruck. The popular winter ski-resort for the active alpine skier is widely known and has a appealing charm during all other seasons as well.
This high alpine farm community is situated at an elevation of 1200 m, located only 10km from Reit im Winkl, and is well worth seeing. The visit’s payoff is an extraordinary landscape with a grand panorama of the Loferer Steinberge (2503 m).
The alm region is situated on a high plateau between the Dürrnbachhorn (1776 m) and the Kammerköhrplatte (1870 m) and as such is an ideal starting point for extended hikes, MTB- and bicycle tours, as well as recreational walks through quiet mountain forests and across sunny alpine meadows.
Besides numerous hiking trails, the Winklmoos-Alm has the first German “Nordic Walking High Area”, a marked Nordic Walking trail (5,6 km), which offers the benefits of a altitude training.
It follows the loop trail hike “Winklmoos-Alm” (No. 7) which passes the Tanzanger and the Mösererstube.

These bouquets are blessed during mass and later taken home. Some bouquets are usually for sale, but they go quickly.
