Tobogganing and winter walks

In Fuschl am See or in the neighbouring villages of Faistenau and St. Gilgen…

Tobogganing is a typical Austrian winter pastime for all the family. It’s the perfect way to enjoy the magnificent winter wonderland scenery in the region while having great fun at the same time.

Take a deep breath, enjoy the crisp winter mountain air and reward yourself with a warm mug of mulled wine or punch in rustic mountain hut atmosphere.

So wrap up warm and off you slide!

Fuschl am See

A gentle 20 minute walk brings you to the "Waldhofalm" mountain hut restaurant. The cosy atmosphere in the hut makes this the ideal place to enjoy a warming drink before you toboggan back down to the village.

An idyllic winter hike through the snowy forest takes you to the “Schlittenhütte” or “Toboggan Hut”. After a short break and perhaps a drink and a snack, you whiz down the mountain back to the valley on the natural toboggan run.

St. Gilgen

After a 35 minute ascent you reach the "Weißwand" mountain hut restaurant when you can treat yourself to a well-earned break with refreshments and enjoy the magnificent views of Wolfgangsee Lake. When you’re ready you can then toboggan all the way back down to St. Gilgen.
