Your Winter in Gmünd
Always close to something good
Gmünd in Winter
Pretty as a picture – the artists’ town of Gmünd in its winter clothes. Perhaps less colourful, but just as beautiful as in the summer. A town full of surprises, where you can enjoy complete indulgence off the beaten track. Where art and nature meet, it’s never too far to the next ski area. Whichever direction you travel – it’s 30 minutes to the middle of the winter paradise of Katschberg, Innerkrems or Goldeck. How nice it is, when you’re able to choose from so many options.
Be Naturally Active
at its finest
Enjoy yourself whilst carving over the groomed pistes, cross-country skiing, starting a ski tour to the next summit or tobogganing into the valley. If you like things a little quieter, then you can get up close and personal to the peaceful nature on a winter hike or snowshoe hike. There are several opportunities to experience real winter moments of pleasure here – it’s always just a question of personal taste.

Our Favourite Places
True Hidden Gems
for your Winter Holiday
The Katschberg Advent Trail is for us, one of the most beautiful places during the festive season. Enchantingly beautiful and with meticulous attention to detail. Here, you can hike on a floodlit trail from station to station and let the musicians and artists in the barns put you in the Christmas mood.
A horse-drawn carriage ride or a trip through the deep snow-covered landscape on the Katschberg is one of our highlights, just like a dog sled ride in Innerkrems. Together with the animals, it’s especially easy to forget everyday life.
Should the weather not be so good, we recommend that you pay a visit to the Badehaus Millstatt, to the Therme Warmbad Villach (approx. 35 minutes away) or to the Therme Bad Kleinkirchheim (approx. 45 minutes) thermal spas. A cloudy day makes an excellent day for shopping here in Gmünd or in the Italian-inspired Villach.
It’s always worth taking a look at the events calendar, as the artists’ town of Gmünd always has the perfect social programme. You can look forward to a colourful mix of art, culture and nature.
