The DSV Nordic Aktiv Zentrum Girkhausen offers everything that cross-country skiing enthusiasts need. The high altitude means relatively reliable snow. Entry is possible from both the “Auf der Steinert” ski hut and from the Albrechtsplatz hikers’ car park at the B 480/B 236 intersection. Thanks to the wide tracks, all trails are laid throughout in the classic and free style, and are directly connected to the Rothaar cross-country trail. The ski hut, which is situated directly on the trail, offers a place to stop for a rest, as well as hire skis.

Author’s recommendation

In wintry conditions, you can enjoy a wonderful view!

However, if there is heavy snowfall, we recommend that you walk up to the hut, rather than drive.
