Sledging and tobogganing is great winter fun for the whole family. With so many different toboggan runs to choose from it will never get boring.
Don’t fancy walking up the mountain? In that case the six kilometre long toboggan run at Hochzeiger is just the thing for you. The Hochzeiger mountain railway gondola takes you up to the intermediate station from where you can fully enjoy the downhill run on your toboggan. Night owls won’t be disappointed here either: once a week this toboggan run is floodlit in the evening.
If you prefer combining tobogganing fun with a winter walk, Pitztal in Tyrol is perfect of that too: our natural toboggan runs are a very special kind of winter adventure.
For families tobogganing and sledging is, of course, a perfect alternative to skiing in Pitztal. Even the tiny tots will marvel at the winter wonderland on a toboggan. Tobogganing with children is so much fun as they playfully get to know and love all things related to winter and snow.
Laid back or fast and furious – the choice is yours during winter in Pitztal!
Our tip: Night-tobogganing!
Some of the toboggan runs are floodlit in the evenings and can be used late into the night. A tobogganing night followed by a traditional “Einkehrschwung”, a stop at one of the cosy mountain huts for a drink, should not be missed.
