Nice tip for a weekend in the snow - a great and tranquil place to go in short distance to Munich is "Bayrischzell". You can get there by car or with the BOB train leaving from Munich Central Train Station every hour. Trip takes 1,5 hrs. From the Train station there is a bus taking you right to the Skifiels "Sudelfeld", great for Adults and Kids (http://www.sudelfeld.de/). There are 3 major skiing schools in town where you can also rent your ski, e.g. http://www.skischule-bayrischzell.de/. They offer courses for adults and kids, also on short term notice on the weekends. You can also practice cross country skiing, snow tubing, go for winter hikes and slide down the hills with your sledges. If you want to stay overnight, recommendable hotels are: 1) right in town: "Gasthof zur Post" http://www.zur-post-bayrischzell.de/. 2) a little out of town (good, if you have a car) and also close to the second skiing district at Spitzingsee: "Der Alpenhof", http://www.der-alpenhof.com/en/hotel.html, 3.) something special: the freshly reopened nature and health hotel "Tannerhof", http://www.tannerhof.de/der-tannerhof. Walking distance to the kids skiing field in town and the snow tubing. Have fun!
