Experience winter SKIING PLEASURE

in the Bavarian Forest


While golf and hiking attract guests to our 4-star Superior Hotel in the Bavarian Forest in the summer months, skiing is our main asset in the colder parts of the year. The Bavarian Forest is home to several large and internationally renowned ski resorts that can easily be reached from Hotel Sonnenhof, offering slopes and trails of various lengths and levels of difficulty. It only takes you 20 minutes to reach the Großer Arber from the hotel. This is one of the biggest ski resorts in the Bavarian Forest. You can get to the Hoher Bogen and Eck ski resorts even faster, and it takes around an hour to get to the famous St. Englmar resort.

Your first timeON SKIS

If you’d like to like to make the most of your stay at our hotel in the Bavarian Forest by trying out skiing for the first time, the Arber Skiing School at the Hoher Bogen ski resort will be happy to help. You’ll also be able to hire equipment if you haven’t brought your own to avoid stress and effort during transport. If enough snow has fallen, cross-country fans can use the Langbach Cross-Country Centre, which has its own entry-level cross-country trail right by the hotel. Three more cross-country trails are located a few minutes away from the hotel, including the renowned centres in Bretterschachten and Neurittsteig.
