best season

The chairlift takes you comfortably up the mountain, after which the varied, 5 km long toboggan run leads through the forest and across fields back down into the valley.

The toboggan run on the Wiriehorn is suitable for young and old. Families tend to take it easy, while advanced sledders like to pick up the pace or even use the fast branching route. Once you have reached the bottom of the valley, the chairlift is already waiting for you and a new tobogganing tour can begin. A whole round, including the chairlift ride, takes about 45 minutes.

General information

Directions

At the top station of the chairlift on Nüegg, turn right immediately and follow the wide path to "Untere Heiteren". The path slopes gently here and you have to pull your sledge. But that doesn't matter at all, because you'll be wonderfully warmed up for the following sledging fun. From "Untere Heiteren" it's all downhill. Just follow the toboggan markings. The trail continues through the wonderfully snow-covered mountain forest. About halfway down, you have the option of turning right and taking the fast branching route for advanced sledders.

Shortly before the end of the toboggan run, you will reach a populated area and cross a road that is occasionally used by cars. Before crossing, check both sides of the road to make sure it is clear before continuing.

Safety Guidelines

On the sledge, you are in control of the speed. Please always adapt it to your driving skills and your sledging knowledge. 

Equipment

Gloves and good shoes with tread are a must. We also recommend that you wear a ski helmet.
