The Isar river valley is wide, the sun stays long here, skiers enjoy awesome views of the panorama between the Zugspitze and Karwendel mountains. The loop named after the champion biathlete, Magdalena Neuner, starts exactly where she learned to cross-country ski. With some luck, you may even meet the young Olympian when you ski past the house where she was born.

Tour description: Magdalena Neuner cross-country ski loop
Classic and skate skiers should start at the Haus des Gastes in Wallgau, the biathlete's hometown, and follow the "Witter-Rundkurs" loop trail signs. This is one of the easier cross-country ski loops in the Alpenwelt Karwendel region with an elevation change of around 30 m (98.4 ft.) and a distance of 3 km or 5 km (1.9 or 3.1 mi.). As an alternative, you can start this loop at the Finzbrücke bridge at the southern entrance to the town from Wallgau or at the Barmseestraße road. Snow machines ensure optimum conditions.
