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 Bad Goisern
Great toboggan runs also await you in Bad Goisern, an approx. 22 minute drive from Hotel Sommerhof. After the climb to the start that takes about 40 minutes, you can toboggan 2 kilometres down into the valley on the Trockentann toboggan run at the Nordic centre in the village of Ramsau near Bad Goisern. The toboggan huts at the top are open to top up your energy between the walk up and the descent. For the way down you can choose between the floodlit tour toboggan run, the former World Cup course from 1992 and the unlit toboggan run on the walk up.
Please note that you can only get toboggans in the valley at Sport Zopf. There is no toboggan hire at the huts.
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.
