On a snowshoe tour you really get to know Russbach. Far away from civilisation you will hike past secluded farms, frozen streams and through snowy forests. A snowshoe tour is the best way to enjoy the unspoiled nature of Russbach. The more demanding the tour, the more important it is to know the area well and to know the proper way to deal with alpine nature.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to the Museum "Fossilienkabinett" at the parish hall is very rewarding.
