Tobogganing in the Wildschönau

Fun for all the family on the Wildschönau’s two toboggan runs. The tracks on the Schatzberg and the Lanerköpfl are both more than 5 km long.

The Schatzberg toboggan run in Auffach is reached from the mid station of the gondola. You have the choice between the family run or the more difficult "Wood Chopper" run both leading down through the forest to the village. 

Take the 4-man chair to the top of the Lanerköpfl toboggan run in Niederau (1.560 m). The toboggan run starts from here and winds 5 km long back down to the village. With a total of 736 m difference in altitude and a gradient of 14% thrills are guaranteed!

Both runs have a been approved by the Austrian Tobogganing Society.

Tobogganing by night in Wildschönau

In the Wildschönau there's no need to miss out on skiing to try out tobogganing. The lifts on Roggenboden in Oberau run on Wednesday and Thursday nights by floodlight (groups any day). A special hook on the lift drags you up the slope on your specially lightweight toboggan to save your legs! The run is a kilometre long and is serviced by snow cannons making it snow secure all winter.

An insider tip is the route from the Schatzberg in Auffach to the idyllic hamlet of Thierbach.

Take the gondola to the top of the Schatzberg (with your toboggan) and cross the piste and the Thalerkogel lift to the start. It’s a 5 kilometre ride down the path through the woods to Thierbach where the ski bus takes you back to Auffach. Don’t leave it too late to start as the last bus leaves Thierbach around 4 p.m.
