The round tour begins at the Gänglesee car park then proceeds through the woods (Winterwald) to the Sücka alp. From there you can reach the toboggan path back to Steg or better still, you can tear down with your sledge. And because high altitude mountain air is known to give you a good appetite the restaurants in Sücka and Steg, the Bergstübli or the Seerestaurant can cater for food and drink.

Author’s recommendation

Take your own sledge or rent one (Toboggan from Sücka).
