We wanted to do something athletic on our second evening as well, so we decided to go on a fun toboggan ride.
TOBOGGANING IN KITZBÜHEL
The Sportberg Gaisberg (“sports mountain”) in the Kitzbühel ski area is true to its name and has something for everyone. The modern 4-seater chairlift brings skiers up to the mountain to enjoy the World Cup giant slalom slope – but it also transports toboggan fans who have fun here literally day and night.
We tried tobogganing in the evening – it’s an especially wonderful experience for a couple in love, with such a magical atmosphere and a view of the bright lights in the valley.

After grabbing a bite to eat in a cosy restaurant on the mountain, we got on our toboggan and raced down into the valley.
It was great fun – not just for us but also for the families we saw. We had a fantastic weekend in Kitzbühel. There was only one problem: it was too short!
Kitzbühel, we’ll be back!
Toboggan run in Kelchalmgraben
The ascent from the Grüntalkapelle chapel in Aurach along the toboggan run to the Kelchalm takes you to 1,432 metres. At first the route has only a slight incline as you move into the valley, but the upper portion is steep. Magnificent views of the Südberge mountains south of Kitzbühel with the Gamshag and the Tristkogel accompany you all the way to the top. Starting at the beginning of December, you can stop in for a break in the Kelchalm hut, which is also known as the Bochumerhütte. The well-groomed toboggan run is narrow and challenging at the top. The middle section is fast, and the final section in the valley is flat. It takes 1 to 1.5 hours to complete the 3.5-km ascent.
Tobogganing straight from the Trattenbachalm
Toboggan fans love to visit our hut, especially as we have a toboggan run that starts right at our Trattenbachalm mountain inn and goes down to Jochbergwald. Spontaneously minded guests are welcome to hire a sledge from us, of course. It takes 2 to 3 hours to complete the 5-km ascent.
