Tobogganing in the Harz Mountains

Race down the mountain on a sledge

Take yourself back to your childhood: do you remember how great it was to sledge down the mountain on a sledge or, if necessary, on a plastic bag? Children's hearts beat faster when tobogganing - and often those of adults too. Tobogganing is great fun for young and old alike. And this fun can be realised in the Oberharz.

You will find toboggan runs in Altenau, Torfhaus, Wildemann, Sankt Andreasberg, Schulenberg and Clausthal-Zellerfeld. At the toboggan run in Torfhaus near Altenau, from where you have a marvellous view of the Brocken there is also a toboggan lift so that you don't have to pull your toboggan up the mountain yourself. The toboggan run in Torfhaus is also floodlit in the evening, so you can enjoy the tobogganing fun even after dark.
