Tobogganing is an "absolute must" for fun away from the ski slopes, for both young and old, large and small. Westendorf's natural toboggan run, with a distance of 7.5 kilometres, belongs to one of the longest toboggan runs in the region.
The easy to moderately-difficult toboggan run starts in the middle of Westendorf's Ski Resort
in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental
. Directly outside the mountain restaurant Talkaser at over 1,770 m, the toboggan run begins on the Route No. 117. Accommpanied by a wonderful landscape, the route takes you into the majestic Windautal Valley.
The Alpenrosenbahn Westendorf
facilitates your ascent.
The beginning of the toboggan run proceeds through the ski resort. Generally, skiers and tobogganists share the generously wide ski and toboggan route
. Shortly after the mountain restaurant "Fleidingalm"
, several serpentine bends direct the trail away from the ski area. From here on enjoy romantic passages through snow-covered woodlands and beautiful clearings.
Numerous fantastic views
of Westendorf's south-facing tributary valley
further enhance the enjoyable toboggan excursion. With a total distance of 7.5 kilometres
, it can easily happen that you are more than a half an hour on the trail.
Within the first third of the run you pass directly by the traditional Fleidingalm
mountain restaurant. As long as the ski lifts are in operation, here skiers and tobogganists are treated to regional culinary delights.
- a cosy mountain inn, in a unique situation indicates the end of the toboggan run. The fantastic panoramic terrace entices you to linger a while. Local cuisine, freshly baked cakes or ice-cream sundaes, basically everything your could dream of, make your heart-beat race.
The Schrandlhof is situated 5.5 kilometres away from Westendorf on a high plateau. Therefore the tobogganists have the opportunity to travel back to the village in a free shuttle-taxi. These taxis depart regularly directly from the Schrandlhof. The final destination is the car park at Westendorf's Alpenrosenbahn bottom station.
