Summer on the Winklmoos-Alm
© Kern

The plateau of Winklmoos-Alm, between the peaks of between Dürrnbachhorn and Steinplatte, might be the most famous district of Reit im Winkl. The Winklmoos-Alm is a ski area and hiking area, dark sky park and boasts well-known huts, inns and restaurants.

Whether in summer via the toll road or in winter by gondola, a short ride takes you from everyday life to an alpine paradise.

Grazing cows and horses, an overwhelming starry sky, great hospitality and enough space and opportunities for all kinds of sports await you on the Winklmoos-Alm plateau, whether lonely or in the company of like-minded people.

Highlights Winklmoos-Alm in summer

The Winklmoos-Alm plateau is an extensive alpine pasture area in the border area of Bavaria, Tyrol and Salzburg.

  • Dürrnbachhorn mountain (1,776 m) with its ridge crossing
  • Steinplatte mountain (1,869 m) and Triassic Park (dinosaur theme park)
  • “Om-Ummi” hike over the Fellhorn to the Hemmersuppenalm for long, bright summer days
  • Three-countries-point
  • Staubfall waterfall and the Heutal valley
  • MTB route over to the Loferer Alm
  • easy hike to the Muckklause- a small dam wall, where the melting snow used to collect enough water to carry felled tree trunks into the valley
  • nostalgic chairlift to the Dürrnbachhorn - 1-seater chairlift up to Dürrnbacheck at 1,610 m, 150 m below the summit of the Dürrnbachhorn summit. The journey takes about 20 minutes (only in summer).
  • Pilgrimage route:"Angelus Bergsteig" with 4 stations
  • Mountain masses and devotions at the Church of St. Johann im Gebirg and the Chapel of the Assumption of Mary
  • Alpine festivals: herb consecration in August, Almumtrieb in autumn etc

Highlights Winklmoos-Alm in winter

The gentle, wide slopes of the Winklmoos-Alm belong to those ski areas in Bavaria where you can best learn to ski. Anyone who spends a skiing holiday here does it again and again. Because as soon as you float down the gentle blue slopes with confidence, the red and black slopes in the adjacent Steinplatte ski area are waiting. Or would you prefer to try snowboarding? Or a ski tour up to Dürrnbachhorn?

Cross-country skiing is often lonely, surprisingly little can be heard or seen of the busy ski area. Likewise when hiking on the rolled winter hiking trails.

Some facts and figures

  • Winklmoos-Alm/ Steinplatte ski area at 1,000 to 1,900 m above sea level
  • 14 lifts and 44 kilometers of groomed slopes
  • 15 km of trails (classic and skating)
  • 50 km "Nordic Plus": challenging cross-country tour from Reit im Winkl via the Winklmoos-Alm to the Heutal and back
