Samerberg Cross-Country Trail in Chiemsee-Alpenland

Samerberg Cross-Country Trail in Chiemsee-Alpenland

During the summer months the high mountain valley at the foot of the prominent Hochries peak south-east of Rosenheim is a popular hiking area. And in winter it attracts the cross-country skiers up to Grainbach and Törwang for a good reason. It’s easy to reach yet still idyllic and, naturally, there are only a few high valleys in the Upper Bavarian mountains. Only a ten minute drive from the Achenmühle exit on the Munich-Salzburg motorway and roughly 200m uphill will bring you to the car park near the school between Grainbach and Törwang. From here you can look at the Hochries and Feichteck, wide sunny mountain meadows and to cross-country trails which snake their way over the varied terrain.


Lots of bends and stunning views

The classic trail up here is the standard trail, where the name is nearly an understatement. It has lots of bends, several ascents and descents and nearly all the time offers you beautiful views of the mountains and Alpine foothills. Lower down near the swimming pool it’s a little bit flatter before you can make a slight detour up to the bottom station of the Hochries lift. If it snows a lot, then the long circuit to Rosshilzen will be prepared, which is really challenging and can only be completed using the classic technique. In any case cross-country skiing on the Samerberg is an impressive experience, where you can enjoy the wonders of nature and also plan it as a family outing as well. Directly next to the school there is a short toboggan run for the toddlers. And naturally part of the enjoyment is to visit and experience a Bavarian guest house. The Gasthof Alpenrose in Grainbach is only a few steps away from the cross-country trail and entices you with a comfortable, cosy interior and Bavaria-Austrian cusine.
