Experience the wonder of the snow covered landscape in Rothwald. Our snow safety, the family-friendly snowshoeing terrain and the beautiful fir and larch forests ... this is our paradise! Discover our range of snowshoe trails, which offer pure, natural experiences...

The trails are marked with wooden posts that have a purple coating. In addition, reflective light bands are attached, which thus make the snowshoe trails even at dusk or at night (for example at full moon) a unique experience.

It is important to us to make nature accessible in the Rothwald. This requires some rules:
- Do not leave the marked trails.
- Take waste with you
- Do not disturb wild animals
We thank all friends of snowshoeing in advance.
