Winter is upon us, which means the much-anticipated ski season in Germany is beginning to get under way. Miles and miles of ski pistes from the Harz mountains to the Alps promise fun for everyone. Whether you're a beginner or a pro – you'll find your perfect slope in Germany. In the higher locations, such as the Alps, the season lasts for around five months.
If skiing and snowboarding are not for you, there are countless other ways to explore the idyllic snow-covered mountain scenery this winter. There are many places, for example, where you can follow winter hiking trails, go sledding or enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride.
