A variety of toboggan runs invite you to fast-paced winter fun in the Ötztal. Families will find suitable short stretches directly at the partial entrance, which can be reached with a leisurely walk. The three natural routes in the front Ötztal (Ochsengarten, Sautens and Oetz-Pigurg) meander through forests with slight curves. There are other nature trails in Niederthai, Gries and Längenfeld. With a length of up to almost six kilometers, these are somewhat more demanding and faster. In Längenfeld, tobogganers can reach the Wurzbergalm in about 90 minutes on foot, or they can be comfortably transported up to the top with the hut taxi. Lift support for easy transport of people including toboggans is available in Hochgurgel, Vent and Sölden.
Many of the toboggan runs have lighting so that you can indulge in unrestricted tobogganing fun in the evening or at night. Different lengths and degrees of difficulty ensure variety and entertainment.
Tobogganing in Sölden
The illuminated toboggan run from the middle station of the Gaislachkogelbahn is one of the longest toboggan runs in Austria with its no less than 7.3 kilometers. On this route you have to climb over 800 meters. The destination is in Sölden, only 50 meters separate the race track and the campsite. With a valid ski pass, a toboggan ticket or a single ticket, the Gaislachkogel cable car can be used. The gondola transports comfortably and, completely relaxed, whiz down the toboggan run.
Organized toboggan evenings and original transfers to various toboggan huts make these popular events a special experience for the whole family. Tobogganing in the Ötztal leaves nothing to be desired.
If you don’t have a toboggan, you can reserve one in one of the numerous toboggan rentals in the valley.
