The “Auf der Steinert” cross-country skiing centre in Girkhausen with its cross-country trails has been expanded to create the DSV Nordic Aktiv Zentrum, which is managed by the Ski-Club Girkhausen e.V.
With machine-laid trails with circular routes 2.5 km, 3.5 km, 5 and 7 km long, the trails vary at altitudes of 660 to 720 meters. The trails can be entered above the ski hut on the Steinert and at the Albrechtsplatz car park; both places can be reached by car, and there is a bus stop at Albrechtsplatz.
The signs indicating maximum ascent and descent gradients correspond to the German skiing association norm.
At the weekend, stop by at the Ski-Club Girkhausen e.V. ski hut after your tour and warm up with a hot drink. In the middle of the outdoors, up on the Steinert, you can experience a ski hut like those in the Alps, with a unique atmosphere.
The tasteful, full furnishings are ideal for events. The tasteful interior and full furnishings will make your event an unforgettable success.
