Downhill skiing in the flatlands of northern Germany? It seems quite unlikely. The Harz Mountains are three hours away and travelling to the Alpine ski resorts of Bavaria will at least take you an entire day ─ if time and weather conditions allow it.
Nevertheless, a solution for winter sport enthusiasts is just a 30 minute drive south from Hamburg. An imposing feature unmissable from the A7 Autobahn, SNOW DOME Bispingen offers the perfect conditions for your short skiing holiday. Located in the small town of Bispingen, the indoor downhill track is completely covered with the finest, most powdery snow ─ regardless of the weather outside. Modern ski lifts and a Bavarian-style Hofbräuhaus restaurant complete the Alpine adventure. And if you just can’t get enough, why not stay overnight? Just book yourself into one of the snug wooden cabins around the imposing SNOW DOME.
Ski and snowboard action for all
From beginners to winter sport experts, everybody will get their money’s worth. Skilled riders can work the bumps and obstacles of the Snow Park, while less experienced skiers and snowboarders can try out the beginner’s slope ─ and conveniently rent all necessary equipment. Of course, professional skiing lessons can also be booked. And if you don’t feel comfortable with a pair of wooden boards under your feet, you can always rent a sled and race down the 300-metre-long slope. Or just skip the skiing and head straight for the après ski drinks.
