On Mountain Dining
The ski area offers cosy refreshments on alpine huts, such as the Bründling Alm, which serves its visitors local dishes and good home cooking. A classic here is the traditional Jagertee. The Hochfellnhaus, the highest mountain guesthouse in the Chiemgau, invites you to take a break of a special kind. At the Hochfelln mountain station, winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy homemade cake, homemade farmhouse bread and regional specialities while enjoying the wonderful view from the terrace.
At Hochfellen, cross-country skiing enthusiasts can glide through the snow-covered winter landscape on 15 kilometres of trails. You can also enjoy the cool air and winter nature on the 20 kilometres of winter hiking trails. Not quite as quiet is the ice skating and the toboggan run promises lots of fun on a fast ride down to the valley. A special kind of experience is certainly a paragliding flight.
