Try out all the slopes and finally take the downhill run to Sterzing and enjoy a cosy evening in your apartment in the town centre.

A winter holiday in Sterzing at its best

Skiing in Sterzing isn’t the only popular winter sport. Tobogganing is also a hit! The longest illuminated and snow-covered toboggan run in all of Italy awaits you on the Rosskopf mountain. The 10 kilometres and 900-metre downhill run is quite a ride. You can hire the toboggans from the local ski rental shop.

six-kilometre high-altitude trail for winter hiking is waiting to be explored at the Rosskopf ski area. Enjoy the panoramic view across the Zillertal Alps to the Dolomites.

Around 100 kilometres of cross-country ski trails await you in Sterzing and its side valleys. The Pfitscher Hochtal valley, with 20 kilometres of excellently prepared trails, is considered an insider tip for cross-country skiers.

A magical snowy holiday

Not only can you enjoy skiing and hiking in Sterzing, but the charming Alpine town is also a real eye-catcher waiting to be explored in winter. Particularly around the holiday season, when the Sterzing Christmas market cloaks the town in magic and the ringing of bells makes the alleyways sing, the northernmost town in South Tyrol is more beautiful than ever.
