Cross-country Skiing at Romantik Hotel Schloss Pichlarn, Austria


Snowshoe hikes in Styria.

Whether on short shoes or long, there are wonderful hikes to be had here. At the castle, the surroundings are celebrated in winter – and there’s no better way to do so than stomping through pristine fields of snow together. Linda, Erwin and Hannes met each other while exploring the vast expanses of white. Hannes enthuses about hiking around the castle’s golf course, while Erwin recommends the longer snowshoe tour to Rossfeld: here, you feel closer to the sky, the brilliant blue almost within reach. Linda trudges on, letting their light-hearted conversation wash over her. She is enjoying the sensation of simply being. The castle looks on in approval.
