Fast-paced fun for the whole family
Smoke clouds rise above rustic huts in the snow-covered Gosau valley. The sky is a deep blue and the snow crunches under your feet. The ideal conditions for a very special winter experience during your family holiday in Gosau: A toboggan or sleigh ride through the fairy-tale winter forest in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut.
In Gosau, the "Rabenkogel" natural toboggan run, which was used for centuries by the locals to transport wood and animal feed with their horn sleds, invites to unbridled sledging fun for the whole family. And the location, the Gosau district of "Hintertal", offers with the view of the imposing mountain peaks of the snow-covered Gosaukamm, the perfect backdrop for this increasingly popular holiday pleasure.
After an idyllic hike of about 20 minutes from the valley, you will be in at the start and you can start the fast descent. With a altitude difference of 200 meters and a length of 1.26 km, the Rabenkogel toboggan run in Gosau is suitable for all ages. We hope you enjoy sledging in the Gosau Valley.
Oh by the way: For those who have no sledge or toboggan in the luggage, you can borrow the appropriate "bullet" from the local sports outfitters. Good slide!
