The Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable-car takes tobogganists up to the summit of Hochwurzen. From there the track takes you back to the valley terminal The cable car offers enough space in its pods to transport the sleds, which can be rented close by the valley terminal. The starting point of the sled run is located directly on the Hochwurzen summit.Sledding is a unique, romantic pleasure on two runners in the middle of nature and winter. Stopping off for food is part of it – and you won’t miss out on Hochwurzen. The lodges are well distributed between the starting and finishing points of the sled run and offer enough space even for large groups!
In the evening you can reach Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen and the toboggan run using the Planai nightline buses.

Tobogganing - as a hobby - is not a difficult sport. However, a minimum level of stamina and flexibility is required. Do not sled beyond your means, be careful at blind bends of the track and especially take care in the evening! Also, please DO NOT use the ski slopes for tobogganing!
