Five kilometres of tobogganing fun even at night!

The 5 km long natural toboggan run on the Galsterberg is lively, fast and curvy. Winter magic on two runners invites you to a hearty toboggan run both during the day and in the evening hours.

The current status of the toboggan run's operating times can be found at: https://www.schladming-dachstein.at/de/Winter/Skiberge/Bergbahn-Galsterberg.

There are individual rides with the gondola and for fun rounds, clubs or an evening company outing, there is once again the all-inclusive tobogganing package which is only valid in the evening.

Destination

Galsterberg valley station

Turn-by-turn directions

The toboggan run runs from the GUB top station to the GUB bottom station.

It is important NOT to sledge along the ski slopes. These are very steep and it is therefore very difficult to control the toboggan, which is a great danger for skiers and other winter sports enthusiasts!
