Ski Apartment Saint George in Reit im Winkl is family-run 2-bedroom apartment that was fully rennovated in 2014 and comfortably sleeps 4 persons (6 including sofa-bed in lounge).

Reit im Winkl is well known for its cross country skiing offering 67 km classic XC tracks and 29 km skating XC tracks in the valley. The apartment is situated directly on the Wellness track. As well as this there are 35 km classic tracks and 45 km skating tracks up at the Winklmoos-Alm and Hemmersuppenalm high altitude XC areas.

Reit im Winkl offers a good mix of ski areas. Within the town there is a nursery slope for children taking their first skiing lessons. The Benzeck ski and snow tube area on the edge of town is just 5 - 10 minutes walk on well prepared winter footpaths from the apartment. This is perfect for families. For those looking for more excitement, the popular alpine ski area of Steinplatte in the Austria Tirol is only 7 minutes away by car. A regular ski bus to Steinplatte runs from the end of the street.

The apartment is also ideally located for Summer fun in and around Reit im Winkl. The river and woods just 5 minutes from the house make a great playground for young and old. Excellent hiking and cycling are both available from our doorstep. The apartment is also just a 5-10 minute walk to the town centre, outdoor and indoor pools.

The Bavaria/Bayern region

Reit im Winkl is a small village (locally known as a snow-magnet) located on the German/Austrian border in the southeastern part of Bavaria, Germany in the Traunstein district, and was previously an immigration and customs control point (prior to the formation of the Schengen Zone). It is situated south of Chiemsee and southwest of Ruhpolding - home of the Biathlon World Cup - in the Bavarian Alps and facing towards Tyrol. The village lies next to the Austrian states Tyrol and Salzburg. Kössen in Tyrol is the next village on the river Lofer, before it joins the confluence of the river Tiroler Achen. Reit im Winkl has a population of approximately 2,600.

Reit im Winkl is well known as both a certified place of restorative and curative air (Luftkurort) and a ski resort, offering alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, both classical and skating, and snow-boarding, as well as mountain trekking and hiking. Snowfall is always plentiful and predictable (even when surrounding areas are bare of snow, Reit in Winkl can be sure of sufficient snow to create premier skiing conditions - in 2012 Reit im Winkl had the deepest snow of 120 cm for a plateau area, which occurred in February, long after snow had melted elsewhere in the region.

In summer, Reit im Winkl enjoys one of the highest counts of sunny days in Bavaria, and is popular with mountain bike and nordic walking enthusiasts. Visitors can enjoy swimming in either of the three alpine lakes (Weitsee, Mittersee and Loedensee) northeast of Seegatterl, or the river Lofer, try their luck at fishing in the trout lake, or take a horse-drawn carriage ride (available in both winter and summer) through the forests and fields.

Reit im Winkl is popularly known to locals and return visitors as Germany's own Tyrol, and boasts its own home-grown regional specialities such as Heumilch cheese (cheese made from cows fed exclusively hay pasture), heuschnapps (a liqueur in which mountain hay and herbs are soaked to produce a distinctive and sweet taste of hay) and Reiberdatschi (grated potatoes mixed with a little egg and flour and poured as a flat mass into a skillet and fried), popularly eaten with apple compot.

Reit im Winkl

Apartment Saint George is situated right on the Reit im Winkl cross-country (XC) ski tracks (Wellness Loipe). From the door you have direct access to 67 km classic XC tracks and 29 km skating XC tracks in the valley, as well as 35 km classic tracks and 45 km skating tracks up at the Winklmoos-Alm and Hemmersuppenalm high altitude XC areas.

For alpine skiers the quiet Benzeck ski area is a 5-10 walk through the woods on well-groomed winter walking paths. For those looking for more excitement, the popular alpine ski area of Steinplatte in the Austria Tirol is only 7 minutes away by car. A regular ski bus to Steinplatte runs from the end of the street.
