The Ski Resort
The Hirschberg lifts are a small but fine ski area in the Tegernsee Valley, only a good hour's drive from the Bavarian capital Munich. The tranquil ski area on the Hirschberg is particularly suitable for mastering the first swings on two boards in a safe environment. Even Olympic champion Viktoria Rebensburg learned to ski in Kreuth.
Beginners are in good hands in the lower part of the ski area. The gentle practice slopes are accessed via the Zwergerllift, directly at the ski school, as well as via Muli I and the practice lift. Advanced skiers can take the Muli II lift up. From there a red marked downhill run leads back to the base station. Really sporty skiers can reach the highest point of the ski area at 1,271 metres with the large drag lift, which is incidentally the longest in the Tegernsee Valley. From the top station a steep slope marked in black leads into the red marked slope.
- The vertical drop from summit to base is 1381 ft. The average difference in altitude between base and summit of Ski Resorts in Germany is 705 ft. Most runs are therefore relatively long. The ski resort takes you to an elevation of 4170 ft.
- Average snow depth during the season is 29 " at summit elevation and 17 " at base elevation. Snow coverage is usually best during February, offering an average snow depth of 33 " at summit elevation and 19 " at the base.
- Hirschberg Kreuth features 36 sunny days on average per season. The average for all ski Resorts in Germany is 26 sunny days. January is the sunniest month with an average of 11 sunny days.
Snow Safety & Snowmaking
On Mountain Dining
Strengthen yourself in the newly renovated Liftstüberl at the base station of the Muli I lift. Here you can enjoy typical Bavarian delicacies, daily changing dishes and hot drinks to warm up on cold winter days.
On the Hirschberg you can not only ski, but also toboggan. Sledges can be rented at the ski rental. If you want to know more about sledging, you should visit the nearby Rottach-Egern carriage museum. On an area of 700 square meters old carriages, coaches and sledges are exhibited.
