The snowshoe tour leads through beautiful landscapes where it is not overrun by tourists. Especially when it comes through deep snow, I will go ahead and you can follow me in the pre-tracked way. After about 2.5 hours we take a longer break. Here I cook for the guests a delicious multi-course lunch. For this I offer you hot tea or punch. Strengthened, we continue through the beautiful landscape of the Hochmoor Glaubenberg. I am convinced that this versatile nature will inspire you with forest, water and, of course, snow.
