Toboggan runs in the Gastein Valley
Three toboggan runs are available for you and your family on your winter holiday in the Gastein Valley. They all invite you to enjoy a fun afternoon or night run together.
Look forward to the following toboggan runs:
Aeroplan natural toboggan run in Bad Hofgastein
The Aeroplan natural toboggan run promises 3.3 km of tobogganing fun. It starts at the Schlossalm from where you toboggan back down to the valley. There’s one thing for sure, this run has a lot to offer: sequences of fast bends and the wide run call for lots of skill and the right braking and accelerating technique.
Bellevue Alm toboggan run in Bad Gastein
The 2.5 km long Bellevue Alm toboggan run in Bad Gastein also guarantees fun for the whole family or group. And the best thing: you can still go wild here once it gets dark too. There is floodlighting until midnight, which makes it just that little bit more thrilling.
Strohlehenalm natural toboggan run in Dorfgastein
There is also a 2 kilometre long toboggan run on the Strohlehenalm. It is open all day and floodlit on several evenings during the week. You can climb up, take the lift or travel by horse-drawn carriage.
Sledging: on your marks, get set, go!
Have a thrilling race with your children or whizz downhill at your own personal comfortable speed. Tobogganing is fun, day or night, and is perhaps the most sociable of the fun winter activities. You can top up your energy levels in the mountain inn beforehand, making the mood for the round of tobogganing afterwards even better!
