A winter to enrapture you

Out into the snow in the Tuxertal!

Sitting by the fire in winter drinking hot chocolate is just splendid. But if you decide you'd like some exercise, the snowy landscape all around the Jakober offers you magnificent opportunities to enjoy the snow in all its majestic beauty. And you can always take it easy by the fireside and enjoy a mug of hot chocolate afterwards.


Altogether there are 28 km of perfectly tracked cross-country courses in the immediate vicinity of The Hotel Jakober. Strap on your skis and enjoy the wintry snow-clad Tuxertal while taking a cross-country course through the idyllic forests and sparkling white meadows.

Snowshoe hiking

Step by step through snow-covered forests and across undisturbed slopes and enjoying the peace and quiet enveloping the landscape, that's what snowshoe hiking is all about. On numerous clearly-marked hiking trails, you are completely at one with nature and sense the idyllic winter peace.


Tobogganing isn't something just for the kids; a cheerful tobogganing party on one of the many well-kept toboggan runs in the area will be great fun for the adults too. And if you want to take a break from the helter-skelter trip, you can always head into one of the many atmospheric Alpine huts and warm up!


Curling plays an extremely important role in life in Tux. There are several curling rinks in the valley and they provide excitement and something altogether different. Here, fun for young and old is guaranteed!

Ice skating

Turning pirouettes, playing hockey, doing the laps on speed skates – fun is guaranteed on the two natural ice rinks in the near neighbourhood of the Hotel Jakober. You are welcome to hire skates here too, and so nothing can stop you delighting in some skating.

Ski tours

On a ski tour in the surrounding mountains in winter, you get really close to nature. As you ski across undisturbed deep-snow slopes, you sense the pleasant, all-enveloping silence and enjoy the peace and quiet. When properly equipped, a ski tour will surely turn out to be one of the very special, unforgettable holiday experiences.
