Magical Hemmersuppenalm in winter
© © Chiemgau Tourismus e.V. Andreas Plenk

Hemmersuppenalm is one of the very special places in Reit im Winkl in Chiemgau. At 1250 m there are trails for hiking and biking, winter hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

Far away from everyday life and traffic, immerse yourself in the mountains of the Chiemgau Alps, just a few minutes by shuttle bus from the town center. With a view as far as lake Chiemsee, with music nights at the hut, a notorious natural toboggan run and several marmot families.

When the valley is covered in fog, the sun often shines on Hemmersuppenalm.

When snowdrops and crocuses are already blooming in the valley, the Hemmersuppenalm is still a “winter wonderland”.

And on long summer days in June and July, the shadows arrive very late up here and hikers plan tours of record lengths.

Hemmersuppenalm in summer

Between grazing cows and whistling marmots, between green alpine meadows, swampy corners, rocks and light mountain forest, (premium) hiking trails and MTB trails run through the vast area of the Hemmersuppenalm. Fellhorn, Straubinger Haus, Eggenalmkogel, Schuhmacherkreuz are popular destinations. At some point you will cross the border into Tyrol, perhaps without even realizing it. At the latest at Straubinger Haus and on the summit of the Fellhorn you can be sure that you have Austrian soil under your hiking boots!

Hemmersuppenalm in winter

Around the Hindenburghütte restaurant, the air is filled with the clatter of cutlery on dishes and the humming of the coffee machine. Just a few minutes away, the glittering snow muffles all sounds. The only thing you can hear is your shoes in the snow or the steady hiss of your cross-country skis.

The winter sun warms your face, the peace and quiet, the crisp air let you breathe deeply - that's why holidaymakers come to Reit im Winkl in winter.

The premium winter hiking trail Panorama on the Hemmersuppenalm is not cleared but rolled. You can hike comfortably on a firm snow pad, just pack a couple of granola bars and a thermos with tea.

Incidentally, the Panorama trail was the 1st premium winter hiking trail awarded by the German Hiking Institute!

For cross-country skiing there are both skating trails and classically groomed trails, over 30 km in total.

The natural toboggan run between Hindenburghütte and Blindau is over 4 km long and is one of the longest in Bavaria. The landlord of the Hindenburghütte hires out sleds and head torches.

Finally, our routes for guests with backcountry skis and snowshoes should be mentioned. They lead up to the Straubinger Haus, even though it is signposted it requires some experience with snowshoes or backcountry skis.
