Fun On The Snow ...

The lovely market town is towering high above the Kleine Mühl valley, overlooking scenic Bohemian Forest. Those wanting to burn up some extra energy can ski the local family terrain, serviced by a surface lift, or explore the nearby Hochficht Ski Area (20km).

At Rinnmühle Mill, there´s slopeside access to the scenic 8K Mühltal Valley cross country ski track, that winds along "Kleine Mühl" river to Sixlmühle Mill with the loop bringing you back on the other bank of the river. It´s secluded and quiet and well maintained. The trail is perfect for novice, intermediate, and expert Nordic skiers.

Or bundle up and take a spin on the ice skating rink! The frozen pond at Rinnmühle Mill features a variety of ice curling alleys and a separate pond for ice skating. Three indoor asphalt curling alleys are available as well.

Natural Biotopes

800th Anniversary of Peilstein The lovely market town is towering high above the Kleine Mühl valley, overlooking the scenic Bohemian Forest.



Peilstein and its immediate surroundings have become a truly unique nature treasure due to the 30 biotopes built during the last few years. Six of them are open to the public: Häuslin, Sausende Schlucht, Hofwiese, Hemmerau, Wäschbachl and Blumau. The marvelous nature preserve covers a total area of 20 hectares and boasts an infinite number of animals and flowers, among them the endangered and almost extinct Alpine newt.
