The toboggan run is about 2 km long and ideal for families. At the beginning, the toboggan run is a bit steeper but then becomes flatter from the first bend and leads through the forest directly to the bus stop at the Gurglerstraße.
Toboggans can be rented directly at the hut.
The preparation and conservation of the way is done by the hutkeeper.
Safety informationIt is recommended to wear a helmet while tobogganing!
