A fantastic skiing vacation in the Chiemgau!

Immaculate deep-snow slopes, wide carving slopes and panoramic descents that sparkle in the glistening sunlight and an untouched mountain world as far as the eye can see.

Naturparadies Hochfelln

In the Chiemgau mountains, a natural snow paradise in a class of its own awaits you in the Hochfelln ski area. Perfectly groomed slopes and varied descents await you. The Hochfelln cable car takes you up to the summit at 1,674 m.

You can enjoy a breathtaking view over the Central Alps and the Chiemsee. From the summit, you have to first conquer the black slope to the middle station. This demanding slope is particularly recommended for experienced skiers and snowboarders and offers a nice challenge with its steep entrance. The ski area is also very popular with freeriders.

The blue slopes at the Bründling-Alm are particularly suitable for families with children. Little skiers can let off steam on the practice lift at the valley station of the Hochfelln cable car.

Numerous mountain huts around the ski area and the Hochfelln-Haus, the highest inn in Chiemgau, provide refreshments. The Hochfellnblick panorama restaurant awaits you at the middle station. Enjoy the view and fortify yourself with Bavarian specialties. The homemade Kaiserschmarrn is highly recommended.
