Night Trail & Castle Trail

For all cross-country skiing enthusiasts who want to burn off some energy in the evening, how about an evening round on the illuminated night trail? From the Kaprun cross-country skiing centre, the trail leads past the Tauern Spa. After 2.8 km it continues with a pleasant incline towards Kaprun Castle. The trail is lit up until 9 pm.

The Castle Trail along the Salzach river, invites you to a leisurely cool-down or warm-up to a wonderful winter day. The approximately 5 km long route in the Kapruner Moor leads past Kaprun Castle – a dreamlike and mystical sight, especially in winter. Low gradients promise relaxed training in the snow. It is an ideal loop deal for cross-country skiing beginners.
