A tobogganing holiday in snowy Salzkammergut

Tobogganing on holiday with the children is great fun

Tobogganing through the surroundings covered in snow down into the valley on a natural toboggan run and the fun in the mountain inn beforehand: tobogganing in Salzkammergut means lots of fun for all ages. You can find great opportunities for tobogganing in both Gosau and the neighbouring town of Bad Goisern.

A toboggan run in Gosau-Hintertal

Sit on it, hold tight and off you go: whether you take a racy toboggan or classic sledge, tobogganing is a funny affair whatever your age. You can whizz down the snowy run on two runners on the toboggan run on the Rabenkogel in Hintertal in Gosau. You walk up to the starting point where the descent on the well-prepared and secured toboggan run awaits you as your reward. Thanks to an elevation gain of just 200 metres this toboggan run is ideal for any age group. A torchlit toboggan race takes place here every Friday in winter and before it starts you get in the mood with a warming punch at the tea hut. Challenge your friends to a race or spend a fun tobogganing evening or afternoon with your family not far from Hotel Sommerhof.

Tobogganing in Abtenau

Great toboggan runs also await you in Abtenau, an approx. 15 minute drive from Hotel Sommerhof. At Karkogel you can toboggan more than 3 km and enjoy great fun. The toboggan is open daily from 8:30 to 16:00 and Tuesday, Friday and Saturday you can also enjoy a ride at night up to 21:00.

You can rent toboggans on spot.

A winter walk, hearty snack and then tobogganing as the grand finale: tobogganing is always a great experience whether it's full of atmosphere at night on the floodlit course or under a bright blue sky.
