Caribbean feeling

In Amberg-Sulzbach, you can ski all year long. Made of 33 million tons of the finest quartz sand, Monte Kaolino reigns above the city of Hirschau. It's a slope without snow. Thanks to the fine, white sand, you might almost think you were on a beach in the Caribbean instead of the Oberpfalz. This approx. 120m high "white giant" is a singular global attraction.

With a 220 meter run and an incline of 40 degrees, every "Monte" newbie will have to conquer some nerves before the first descent. And the Caribbean feel will really kick in when the mega-dune becomes the site for the European Masters in sandboarding, sand skiing and big foot skiing. Where else can you enjoy winter sport in a swim suit?
