best season

In winter, this toboggan run is probably the fastest in the Bernese Oberland. Zip down the steep mountain slope directly to the bottom station of the gondola lift.


The run leads from the top station to Lake Oeschinen, and then down steeply to the bottom station. You should factor in about 1 hour per round trip.


No toboggans can be hired at Lake Oeschinen. Toboggans made of plastic, wood and the legendary "Oeschiflitzers" can be hired from InterSport Oeschinen at the gondola lift bottom station.
