Tobogganing – On the sledge through the snow

27. February 2017

“Let’s go tobogganing!” – These magical words make every child’s heart flutter in joy! Tobogganing is a fun activity for the whole family. A nice walk through the winterly forest combined with an exciting  tobogganing run back down makes everyone gleam with pleasure!


From toddlers to grandparents, tobogganing is a great activity for every family member. You won’t be able to stop laughing in joy while racing down the hill – What an adventure! The beautiful landscape flies by while you’re whizzing down towards the valley. Grab your toboggan and off you go! If you didn’t bring your own toboggan, we’ve got you covered: There are numerous local toboggan rental outlets.

The Olympiaregion Seefeld offers plenty of superb tobogganing terrain. These are just a couple of the best runs:

The perfect destination for families

The idyllic mountain lodge Hämmermoosalm is a great destination for all tobogganing fans. The ascent is rather easy and the effort can be rewarded with a delicious meal at the cosy lodge. Enjoy tasty Tyrolian dishes and a relaxing break before you whiz down the valley. The toboggan run is very well groomed which makes it perfect for beginners and families with toddlers. Take care of carriages on the run.

Reitherjoch Alm
An adventure for experienced tobogganers

The pretty mountain lodge Reitherjoch Alm is located at an altitude of 1500 m below the Härmelekopf. It tempts tobogganers with a breathtaking view on the region and delicious Tyrolian cuisine. After the short ascent the cosy, rustic inn awaits its guests. Snuggle up near the warm oven and enjoy a tasty refreshment. The run is no less than 2,5 kilometres long. It is moderately difficult to difficult and therefore suitable for more experienced tobogganers. The run combines a first gentle part with a couple of more challenging sharps bends.

Exceptional views and great tobogganing

Die Rauthhütte am Fuße der Hohen Munde macht alle Rodelfans glücklich. Neben gutem Essen ist vor allem eines unvergesslich: der Ausblick! Nicht nur bei gutem Wetter lohnt sich der Aufstieg. Circa 1 Stunde dauert die Wanderung auf die 1.605 m hohe gelegene Hütte. Dabei durchqueren Sie den romantischen Winterwald und können die Ruhe und frische Bergluft genießen. Die Rodelabfahrt ist 3 Kilometer lang und für fortgeschrittene Rodler geeignet. Die Schwierigkeiten der Strecke liegen im oberen Teil: Hier ist der Weg steil und der Schlitten muss gut kontrolliert werden. Wenn man diese Herausforderung sicher gemeistert hat, ist der untere Teil ein herrlicher Genuss!

Eine Hütte wie aus dem Bilderbuch und anspruchsvolles Rodeln

The Wettersteinhütte is a picturesque mountain lodge and offers everything one might ask for. It nestles in the stunning beauty of the mountain chains Wetterstein and Karwendel. During the hike up, you can take in overwhelming views on countless mountain peaks. The hike itself is a longer and more challenging one, leading up the road from Leutasch. The tobogganing run contains steep parts – this makes it perfect for all experienced and adventurous tobogganers!

Hochmoos Alm
Eine gemütliche, wunderschöne Familientour

With a hike of only 40 minutes to 1 hour, the Hochmoos Alm is the perfect destination for families with young children. Enjoy the walk up and a tasty refreshment in the inn. Afterwards, you can grab your toboggan and whiz down the run. It is freshly groomed every day which makes it the perfect toboggan experience!
