Tobogganing couple


on 5 different runs

In the past you might have received a smirk if you were seen with a sled in the mountains but tobogganing has enjoyed a genuine renaissance in the last few years in Tyrol – and it’s not just for kids!

In the Achensee region you can choose between five natural toboggan runs, from 800 metres to 3 kilometres in length, and ranging from family-friendly to fast and challenging. It’s a great activity for all ages on your winter holidays in the Alps.

If you don’t want to overexert yourself, take the lift in Achenkirch to the starting point of the toboggan run and make use of the “toboggan express” in Pertisau to make the ascent up to the mountains.

Sledding down toboggan runs at night is especially fun. Nighttime tobogganing is available on Wednesdays at the Christlum in Achenkirch. Four other toboggan runs in Maurach, Pertisau, Steinberg and Wiesing are also floodlit for night sledding throughout the week. Enjoy tobogganing on your winter holidays in Tyrol, Austria!
