You can hear almost nothing but your own breath as you make your laps on the cross-country skating trail.

On the Schlossloipe in Kaprun, especially beginners and novices will be thrilled. Beautifully flat with few meters of altitude difference it leads past the castle Kaprun - hence the name.

Connoisseurs like to move on the flat cross-country trails on the southern shore of the Zell am See lake or in Bruck, while experienced skaters are looking for more challenge and want to cover a few meters of altitude. If you belong to this group, you should take a closer look at the cross-country trail in Fusch a.d. Glocknerstraße or the glacier trail on the Kitzsteinhorn.
