The original, well-tended, cultured landscape of the highest valley in Osttirol is a fabulous setting for 9 certified winter hiking paths. All the indicated routes are maintained and cleared throughout the winter to enable effortless walking through the snowy winter landscape. The infrastructure measures are deliberately unintrusive to nature. Along the Schustertal winter hiking path, there is the surprising sight of mighty boulders that stem from the last Ice Age. Along the Dorfberg long-distance hiking path (10.5km) from St. Oswald, you will be accompanied by a view of the village Kartitsch as well as a constantly changing interplay of sunny and shady stretches on the way up, which affords a breathtaking view of the Carnic ridge, from Großer Kinigat to Ortler.
Along the sunny Innerlerchweg (5km), three benches arranged with different visual axes invite you to take a rest. From there you can gaze far into the valleys and Großer Kinigat presents itself proudly with the Europe peace cross. The Wiesenweg (3.8km) links St. Oswald with the main locality Kartitsch. On this modest sunny family path, the fabulous view also accompanies you constantly: the main alpine ridge shows its full majesty, one has a view into all five valleys that can be explored from Kartitsch. Resting places that can also be used in winter can also be found on all 9 winter hiking trails and you can call in to cosy inns along all the routes.
