The toboggan run in Täsch is something of an insider’s secret. The way to the starting point is on foot, zig-zagging up the slope until just before Eggstadel.
First, the hard work: tobogganists have to drag their sledges 450 vertical metres up the mountain. And then, the reward: a thrilling descent down the M-shaped route to the valley floor. The toboggan run in Täsch is especially popular among locals.

Special experience: Romantic sledging at night or during full moon when the weather is fine is possible even without a headlamp.
