In a flash they already whiz along the track and then disappear behind the curves. They are fans of sledding, the winter sport that makes everyone agree! Because the fun on the sled is the speed, which varies according to your adventurous spirit. Alone, as a couple or in a group, be ready to push yourself with your heels and to bend using your feet. A child's play loved by adults too!

Author’s recommendation

For those who can't get enough and to want to have fun also under the starlight, the Obereggen sledge slope is illuminated even at night.
