We’ve found tranquil villages amid idyllic scenery from which to enjoy the magic of winter. Picturesque walks, combined with either sleigh rides and boat trips or visits to fairy-tale castles, make for a very enjoyable non-skiing snow holiday in Germany for 2023/24, especially since you stay in high-quality hotels with restaurants to match.
Our winter holidays in Germany focus squarely on non-skiing activities. We specialise in Slow holidays, on which the emphasis is on taking your time to appreciate your surroundings, so we’ve sought out villages on the quiet side of the mountain, where by day you can explore on foot, take a boat ride or visit romantic castles, and in the evenings unwind at a 4-star hotel of character complete with a spa.
The best place for a snow holiday for non-skiers in Germany
If you are looking for a snow holiday for non-skiers, Germany’s Berchtesgaden National Park, close to the border with Austria, is an excellent choice. We have chosen the village of Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden not only for its beauty and sense of tradition, but also because it is well placed for exploring – you can take a boat trip across nearby Königssee, and discover towns of frescoed houses. Also in Bavaria, but further west, Hopfen-am-See is an equally superb choice, offering the chance to visit King Ludwig II's castles: Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau.
