Sudelfeld: Popular ski resort in the Bavarian Alps

The Sudelfeld ski area is one of the most popular and largest winter sports regions in Bavaria and stretches around the municipality of Bayrischzell at 800 metres up to the Vogelsang mountain at 1,563 metres. There are extensive runs for every requirement. Families with children in particular feel very comfortable there. There are two children’s areas, a snow park, an action world and rustic mountain huts on the alpine pasture. The ski area is located about 80 kilometers south of Munich and has 31 kilometers of slopes in all levels of difficulty. Modern chairlifts – a total of 13 lifts – lead up the mountain. Ski schools and ski rentals are also an integral part of the facility. Since 2014, several major investments have been made, such as in a new chairlift, a heated ski depot or the expansion of snowmaking with snow cannons. The enchanting region was discovered for skiing 110 years ago and gradually developed.

Ski tours, ski passes and guaranteed snow on the Sudelfeld

A day tour and an evening tour are offered. The former is 2.6 kilometers long and takes about 90 minutes; the latter are available every Wednesday in a shorter (3.2 km) and a slightly longer version (4 km) with a duration of between 90 and 120 minutes. It is important to avoid the closed slopes.

Ski passes are available in half-day and day versions. There are discounts for groups. The prices are staggered for adults, young people and children. Hourly tickets are available to ski vacationers for two to six hours. Points cards can also be used to collect discounts.

In general, Sudelfeld is very snow-sure in winter, as most of the slopes are located at an altitude of between 1100 and 1500 meters. Snow clouds approaching from the north often stick to the mountains. In addition, several snow-making systems are available. 63 percent of all posts can be covered with snow. On average, skiing is possible on 100 to 120 days.

Hiking in summer

In summer, the Sudelfeld presents itself as a true hiking paradise. Between lush meadows and cosy alpine pastures, fantastic views of the Bavarian mountains open up again and again. Friends of aviation with model airplanes, hang-gliders or paragliders also feel at home here in summer. If you want to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the mountains yourself, book an unforgettable tandem flight. The reservoir for the snow cannons makes it even more attractive in the warm months. It blends into the varied landscape like a natural mountain lake. Hot feet of hikers are allowed to take a cooling bath in the reservoir.

Restaurants and mountain inns

At Sudelfeld there are several mountain inns, alpine pastures and rustic huts that invite you to stop for a bite to eat after a fun day on the slopes. Here, hearty classics of Bavarian cuisine, but also South Tyrolean delicacies are served. Pizza, pasta and international classics are of course not missing. There are a total of 13 locations to choose from. In summer and winter, many athletes come to the “Brösel-Alm” at the Burghotel Sudelfeld. Of course, one or the other picnic with a Bavarian snack or smaller private parties can also be organized here. In fact, the name of the alpine pasture comes from the many guests who often leave crumbs behind when eating the local delicacies.

Children’s Worlds

The SNUKI children’s area at the lower end of the Sudelfeld and the Bayrischzell winter adventure park promise games, sports and fun for the little guests. The magic carpet and the forest of figures are two of the highlights. The former is spatially separated from the other slopes. The little ones learn to ski in a playful way, while parents can relax in their own lounge. The children’s area also promises skiing fun or a fun ride on the snow tubing run. In the action world, not only the video game Shredders is popular, but also a snow park with hurdles and challenges to overcome. A freeride cross with wave tracks and adventurous steep curves brings the right kick with it.

Leisure activities, promotions and excursions

Every Wednesday is Ladies Day at Sudelfeld. There is also the Happy Hour ski pass, which is valid daily from 2:30 p.m., and a family day ski pass. Severely disabled and older seniors also benefit from attractive prices. These can be found on the official website. Tickets can be purchased online. Wellness enthusiasts visit the Tannermühl village pool in Bayrischzell. Of course, after an eventful day of skiing, you can indulge in après-ski, for example in the Geierwally umbrella bar and the Schi Alm, or you can end the evening comfortably. Day trips not only lead to the Bavarian capital Munich, but also to Schliersee and Tegernsee. Of course, nothing stands in the way of a winter hike or a shorter walk over the snow-covered alpine pastures.


The tourist information office in Bayrischzell will help you find suitable accommodation. Several large hotels, but also holiday apartments, smaller inns and other private accommodations are available. Popular are, for example, the Hotel Königslinde, the Postgasthof or the Klosterhof zur Post, to name just three. In most hotels, a good breakfast is included. With timely booking a few months in advance, every ski holidaymaker will find suitable accommodation to suit his taste.

Arrival and Getting Around

The Sudelfeld is easily accessible by public transport. In addition, free ski buses run from Rosenheim to the valley station during the season. Other bus lines bring visitors here from other corners of Bavaria. From Munich, the train runs hourly to Bayrischzell. For guests arriving by car, 2500 parking spaces are available for a fee.
