The trail starting from the Kissinger Hütte is ideal for newcomers to cross-country skiing due to its shortness and flatness. The great view from the Feuerberg completes the tour.

Still new to cross-country skiing. You're in good hands on the Kissinger Hütte circular trail. There are almost no vertical meters on a distance of 2 kilometers. So you don't have to deal with steep climbs or descents at the beginning of learning. On the tour, it is also possible to be both classic or as a skater - what more could a beginner ask for.

The great panoramic view from the tree-free summit of the Feuerberg and the good cuisine of the Kissinger Hütte make the excursion a well-rounded experience.
