Right under the Kramerplateau trail at the edge of the residential area “Im Leitle” there is a nice slope, which is perfect for tobogganing even with small children.

This is the perfect toboggan run for children! Lively but not too steep and only a short walk away from the bus stop or the car park.

 

The “big ones” can walk all the way up to the Alpine hut St.-Martin-Hütte and toboggan all the way down (45 min. hike). The end of this long toboggan run is right next to the children’s toboggan slope.

Destination

Bayernhalle in Garmisch

Turn-by-turn directions

Turn right at Bayernhalle and take the footpath leading up to the Kramerplateauweg trail into the forest for a few minutes. After a short stretch, a narrow path goes off to the left (signpost for tobogganing), after 20 m the forest clears and you reach a toboggan slope which is perfectly suitable even for small children. This place provides endless fun in the snow even for the youngest children.
