Cross-Country Skiing in the Chiemgau Mountains

Prien Valley Cross-Country Trail in Chiemsee Alpenland

 
The Prien valley between Aschau and Sachrang in Chiemgau and Chiemsee Alpenland is close to the border with Tyrol and a popular area for cross-country skiers. This is mainly due to its relatively snow-reliable location and also to the beautifully and well-prepared cross-country trail, which attracts locals as well as many holidaymakers alike. It starts directly from the hiking car park in Hainbach, directly at the side of the road. The trail which is prepared for classic cross-country skiing goes away from the road into the forest along the banks of the Prien and returns back to the road at Innerwald again. Soon the trail changes its character and the scenery changes too. What was previously a narrow valley now becomes wide open meadows in front of you with lots of sunshine. From here the trail is also prepared for cross-country skaters and crosses over the flat meadows passing farmhouses with nice views of the Geigelstein on the left and Spitzstein on the right and towards Tyrol and Sachrang. At the side of the road there is a car park for cross-country skiers, which is an ideal starting point for those who want to use the skating technique.

Beautiful views near Sachrang

Now the trail has several bends on flat terrain, passes Sachrang on the left until it reaches a small drag lift and a guesthouse. The trail ends there but before it does there are a few more loops uphill for those especially athletic skiers. If it’s too far for you to ski the whole way back you can always take the RVO bus back to Hainbach or Aschau if you wish.Now the trail has several bends on flat terrain, passes Sachrang on the left until it reaches a small drag lift and a guesthouse.
