The Gesäuse winds down and the animals drift off into their well-deserved winter hibernation. But what about the people? Well, they spend their time at home relaxing – is what one might think and sure, some will do just that. But then suddenly one hears cries of joy from the tobogganing track or after an amazing ski touring descent in the powder snow. Thanks to the vast amount of activities waiting in the white winter nature the Gesäuse never gets boring – not even in winter.
However, silence does of course play a central role in the Gesäuse, especially in the National Park. Even when you are close to screaming with joy, you shouldn’t disrupt the silence. Instead, help us to protect the wildlife during their winter hibernation and bring tranquillity to those seeking relaxation. Talking of it– relaxation is something that the Steirische Eisenwurzen Nature Park and Geopark definitely have to offer. Go on a winter hike, take a romantic sleigh ride or go horse-back riding through the glimmering snow.
So, whether we’re talking cross-country skiing, alpine skiing, ice skating, ski touring, snow shoeing, tobogganing, riding a horse-drawn sleigh or trying out curling, the Gesäuse offers the perfect conditions for all these activities. Marvel at the unique snow crystals and the sparkling snowy forests and be enchanted by the wintry nature.
