Long Description:
The coordinates are of the Kniebis hut which serves food and has public restrooms.

The resort spreads over a vast area and boasts over 100km for langlauf (cross-country) skiing.

At between 900m to 1050m above sea-level, having enough snow is usually not a problem - but just in case there are snow machines ready to produce enough artificial snow to keep skiers happy. There's no need to go home early either, as some areas are floodlit until late. Apart from langlauf, there are many other opportunities for skiing and snowboarding.

The nearest large town is Freudenstadt. The nearest international airports are in Strasbourg, France, Baden Airpark near Baden-Baden, or Stuttgart airport, all relatively equidistant.
