Daring races, happy children laughing and a lot of powdery snow. As soon as you touch a sled, you will become a child and a lot of fun for the whole family is guaranteed!
Sleds have been means of transportation for thousands of years. In Scandinavia for example they were used for transporting different goods as well as people. The same is true for the Alps and the Ore Mountains. Through time in the Alps sleds have become more a recreational means of transportation and are used less for work.
Driving fun on beech or ash sleds
Those are the materials sleds are traditionally made of. In order to make them even faster, so you and your kids can race other families properly, the sleds’ runners are fitted with iron for ultimate speed. When they are ready, two people can ride them at a time, racing downhill towards the valley.
Put a sparkle in your kids’ eyes
Adults will recall happy memories from their childhood too. Our Olympiaregion offers a couple of natural sledding slopes. In the evening some of them are even illuminated so you don’t have to cut the fun short at night. Naturally you can rent sleds locally. Many slopes – among which Naturrodelbahn Reitherjoch Alm in Seefeld/Reith, Rodelbahn Hämmermoosalm and Rodelbahn Mühlberg – are waiting only for you to be tested out.
