The classic winter sport for all those who prefer to glide through the snowy landscape in a sporty and relaxed manner instead of chasing down the ski slopes time and time again.

Tobogganing or sledding is an almost nostalgic winter pleasure, which makes us feel like children again for a short time. A rapid ride down the mountain is simply incomparable fun, no matter how old you are, so it should be on the program for every winter vacation!
