Winter Packages in Bären Gonten

Dec 5, 2020Appenzell Special

Winter Packages – something for any occasion

The white hills of the Appenzellerland gently rise, the snow crystals glitter like diamonds in the winter sun.
The cross-country skis glide over the cleanly groomed trail, the long poles provide powerful thrust, one, two, one, two, always in rhythm. Cross-country skiing can have a meditative effect – and is considered as a trend sport this winter, as many are drawn to the snow, but not all of them want to be in a tight gondola and stand in long queues. The idyllic Gonten cross-country ski trails run close to the Boutique Hotel Bären. On request, the hotel can help you to book a private instructor.

Or you can choose one of the other winter packages offered by the Hotel Bären in Appenzell: In the “Wintersportauszeit” (winter sports timeout) for example a trial course in cross-country skiing, sledging fun on the Kronberg, a three-hour snowshoes tour and a ski day on the Ebenalp are included.

Winter fun in Appenzell (time-limited offer)

The familiar skiing area with two ski lifts is ideal for those who want to ski off the beaten track. The day starts with a hearty Bären breakfast to ensure that you have enough energy. Lovers of the cold season can spend the whole day in the Appenzell winter wonderland – there are plenty of offers. Outdoor exercise in the fresh air strengthens the immune system and is good for the soul.

A tip for a magical experience: walk along the “Steene- ond Lateenenweg” (stars and lantern light way) in Weissbad when it gets dark. Around forty lanterns lighten the 800-meter-long winter hiking trail until around 8:30 p.m. each day, from November 29, 2020 to February 7, 2021.

During the Advent season, large wooden crib figurines are raised. The long day in the fresh air is crowned by a visit to the wellness and spa of the Hotel Bären: The wooden sauna under the gable roof has been newly opened. Next to a green, heated tiled stove, you can stretch out your tired legs on curved wooden couches afterwards. The perfect ending? A cup of tea or mulled wine by the open fire in one of the cozy Bären parlours.
