    First off, avoid staying on weekends. This place is very touristy and gets packed on weekends with long lines on the lifts. Come on a weekday. There are a lot of car parks spread around the ski resort. If you arrive on a weekend, be sure to be there at least 30min before opening. Also check the skiliftkarussell website for weather forecast and what runs will be open.
    You can also buy you ticket online but I didnt like the fact that you have to order it home and cant pick it up at the resort (at least that was the case when I was there).

    Snow/Weather:
    ince its a low altitude ski area, your experience may vary. Dont always expect a snow cover in town. So a spontaneous trip is mostly the best option to be sure to have snow. But one thing winterberg is good at, its snowmaking, so if everything is green and its 10°C for days, 90% of the ski runs will still be open. You dont miss out a lot of runs then.
    Since its mostly artificial snow it can happen after a freezing night, that the runs turn into pure ice, making some runs (like the black run at the St George ski jump) very dangerous slippery.

    Ski runs:
    Most ski runs are pretty short and easy. Very beginner friendly area. My favorite runs are the Waldschneise on Kappe, Sürenberg and Poppemberg II. More challenging are the Kappe Slalomhang and the St George ski jump black runs.

    Lifts:
    The resort has mostly chairlifts and most of them are very modern and high capacity (6 to 8 seaters) only the very beginner hills have drag lifts.
    Restaurants:
    There are a couple of good places to have a drink and have some good food.

    Final Advice:
    Touristy beginner ski area, which can also be nice for a warm up for an upcoming trip to the alps. Profi skiers or offpiste skiers might not get satisfied here I advice to buy the Winterberg arena ski pass which includes also smaller less touristier local ski hills like Altastenberg, Willingen and Altastenberg. Also definitely check out the Flutlicht ski (evening ski) every Wednesday and Friday from 7:30 to 10pm. It costs an upcharge but its very worth it.

    It is quite hard to believe that from this picturesque spring comes one of the most important rivers of Germany. The spring itself is well presented and invites for a picknick. The parking lot is just a few minutes walking distance. Overall: nice, but not overwhelming.

    We parked our car on the parking lot next to the hotel restaurant on top of the Kahler Asten mountain. We walked a trail of about 5 km between the blueberry bushes, pine trees etc. the view is splendid and there are many trails for various walking levels.

    The St.-Georg-Schanze is a prominent landmark in the Winterberg holiday world, rising an impressive 80 meters above the landscape at Herrloh, which itself is 734 meters (2408 feet) above sea level. The ski jumps feature seating for 2,000 spectators in both the stands and the ground-level area of the event arena. From the 22-meter-high viewing platform, visitors are treated to breathtaking views of the valley. The modern St. Georg ski jump, inaugurated in 1960, now boasts a K-point of 64 meters. The panoramic views from the top are simply stunning.
    The on-site restaurant, while often crowded, serves delicious food with excellent service. It's the perfect spot to unwind, get some fresh air, and enjoy a bit of exercise. The area is ideal for recreation, with exciting views, natural beauty, and ample opportunities for hiking and photography. The infrastructure around the ski jump supports various outdoor activities, including hiking and cycling, making it a fantastic excursion destination. I highly recommend visiting the St.-Georg-Schanze for a memorable and enjoyable experience.

    The tower is part of the hotel restaurant and kind of museum/info centre. For the one who is interested in some historical info and details of flora and fauna of the Kahler Asten area this is an interesting info centre. The views from the top of the tower are beautiful.
