Berwang information

Berwang is the highest situated village of the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena at approx. 1.300 metres.

In Winter, you can enjoy perfectly groomed slopes which lead directly into the town centre. Together with Bichlbach, the ski area provides the perfect winter vacation.

In summer, Berwang is a good starting point for alpine hiking tours due to its altitude.

What to do:

and in the winter:

Say hello to our "winkemann"

Do you already know the waving man of Berwang? During winter season, he waves  to the world through our live cams.

Originally, the waving man of Berwang simply wanted to greet his daughter, who has moved away. Every morning at 8.30 a.m. during winter season, he positioned himself in front of the live camera und waved to his little girl (as he is a staff member of the mountain railway company, he found his way up there).

Many other people were excited and enjoyed watching him, some even sent photos of themselves waving back. Hence, this habit continued after the retirement of our original waving man and you still can see a waving man through our cams if you are lucky :)
