Nordic Walking Routes

You will find some of the best Nordic Walking Routes by the Schwarzsee, or in Jochberg. You can always make use of some of the cleared and marked trails:

  • Bichlach: The moor land behind the Schwarzsee has some gentle hills, and offers the ideal conditions to begin Nordic Walking.
  • Jochberg: Nordic Fitness Sports Park offers the Askara Rude, a 5.1 km (easy) route and the Perlberg-Runde, an 8.3 km (intermediate) route.
     
  • At the beginning, a few hours of training are recommended to learn the technical movements of Nordic Skiing and to test your fitness.

Ice Sports

For a simple winter sport that provides a large amount of enjoyment you must experience ice skating on the natural ice lake Schwarzsee as well as curling. In Curling you use a small black target cube, called a Rabbit. When curling you use the broom to regulate speed, and you can feel like one of the local experts. Please contact the Kitzbuehel Tourism Office for further information.
