Deep in the Bavarian Mountains, Westernberg (Ruhpolding) is close to the border of Austria, tucked away in the Southern Eastern corner of Germany approximately 650m-750m above sea level. Despite being only 90 minutes away from Munich, holiday makers often feel worlds away when exploring the Alps.
Surrounded by raw, stunning and lush mountain scenery, skiers and winter sport enthusiasts will feel right at home in this quaint town. Praised for the welcoming and friendly community, this place is perfect for beginners, families and any who are keen to meet other like-minded travellers.
The main features of Westernberg are the 0.5km blue slopes. All these have 100% snowmaking capabilities and serve as a fantastic starting point for people who are new to winter sports. These are accessible through the rope lift and tow which runs regularly at the resort. Other activities also include a snow park for family-orientated activities, children and technical skiers.
Westernberg's adrenalin-fuelled valley run through the Alps is incredibly successful for anyone with a thirst for adventure. Night skiing is even on offer for anyone after other unique skiing experiences. However, the latter is only available on Tuesdays and Fridays during the resort's floodlight hours, which are from 6-9pm.
Looking to go further afield? The district of Chiemgau has plenty to offer! At least 10 other resorts are nearby including Unternberg and Maiegschwendt which are under 3 kilometres away from the village.
After an intense day of skiing, what better way to spend the night than to put your feet up? By the entrance to Westernberg at the Skiarena, Leita Stum prides itself on providing delicious cuisine as well as a cosy atmosphere. It even remains open during night skiing hours, meaning people rarely miss out on a hot meal if they're on the slopes at dusk.
