Fancy a toboggan ride?
Fantastically beautiful toboggan runs and cosy alpine huts in Tyrol are simply a must during wonderful winter holidays. The locals as well as our guests have great fun with a future toboggan run - look forward to unforgettable hours in the snow.
Our guests can use the hotel's own super-fast toboggans free of charge.
Refreshments available in the Kala Alm
Length: 3.5 km, floodlights, rentals available at the Kala Alm
The nicest toboggan runs don’t always take place during the day underneath a clear blue sky. Night-time is also a great time to enjoy the flood-lit toboggan run and have fun in the huts on the Kala Alm (open from Tuesday - Saturday, 9:00 am - midnight; Sundays until 7 pm; closed Mondays - except for holidays). Well-fed after an excellent meal and warmed up you can start your ride down the mountain.
