Children go sledging with Pitzi on a winter holiday in Tyrol

Sledging & tobogganing in Pitztal

Tobogganing fun for the whole family in Tyrol

A winter vacation in the Tyrolean Alps doesn't just have to mean skiing. No, there are also plenty of opportunities and activities away from the slopes in winter. Tobogganing with children on groomed slopes or toboggan runs is particularly fun, varied and, above all, in the fresh air. An experience not to be missed during your winter vacation.

Tobogganing - an Austrian tradition

Tobogganing has a long tradition in Austria and has developed into a popular winter sport and leisure activity in recent decades - especially for children who want to be entertained with new adventures every day, tobogganing is a welcome change from skiing and snowboarding.

But be careful: the ride to the starting point of the toboggan run can be quite strenuous for children - it's best if your child sits on the toboggan and is pulled to the station, an occasional whinny will certainly be rewarded with a cheerful child's laugh! Fortunately, the family toboggan run is right behind the hotel door. One thing is for sure: after an exciting tobogganing adventure, your children will inevitably be tired, the perfect opportunity for mom and dad to enjoy our wellness area (at least until the children have recovered, because parents know best how resilient children can be).

However, as soon as you reach the summit, the ski huts await you with invigorating mulled wine, sweet children's punch, electrolyte-rich beer and genuine Tyrolean delicacies prepared in the style of original Tyrolean skier's food.

Fast descents & exciting races for tobogganing & sledging

The best thing about tobogganing is the descent on the perfectly groomed slopes. Short and long toboggan races, new speed records and the odd adrenaline rush await you and your little ones when tobogganing in the Pitztal in the versatile winter holiday destination of Austria.

Tip: Forget the small bumpy hills, muddy slopes and grassy meadows - tobogganing on a freshly groomed ski slope is a real blast! That's why we advise you to wear a helmet when tobogganing and don't forget your ski clothing.

Tobogganing is one of the most popular off-piste activities. A fact in which the subordinate clause "off-piste" should not be taken too seriously. After all, the fastest races take place on the slopes, which are covered in snow by snow cannons and freshly groomed by snow groomers. Tobogganing on vacation in Austria is great fun for everyone - why not try it out for yourself?

The location is perfect, as you can go sledging right next to the hotel. An additional highlight: toboggan rental is free of charge for guests.

Sledging in the evening right next to the hotel on a floodlit toboggan run

If you don't want to miss out on a sunny day of skiing in the ski area or a full day of skiing in Bambiniland, you can go tobogganing late into the night after skiing. 2 times a week we offer our guests at Pitzis Kinderhotel a fun tobogganing evening in the moonlight.

Moonlight tobogganing right next to the family hotel is a hit! Tobogganing with the whole family at night is a real winter adventure that will stay in your memory.

The toboggan slope at Pitzis Kinderhotel is floodlit until 22:00 for night tobogganing, offering you a varied evening activity away from the skis (piste), even at night. If you don't have your own toboggan or sledge, you can of course hire one free of charge from Pitzis Kinderhotel.

Tobogganing on a family winter vacation in Austria

The great thing about tobogganing on a winter vacation in Austria is spending time together with the family and having fun with everyone involved. This creates memorable moments that you will look back on with fondness for years to come. Who knows, maybe a family tobogganing champion or two will be crowned after a fiercely contested tobogganing competition?
