The approx. 1 km-long toboggan run in Königsleiten starts behind the Hotel Ursprung and ends at the old Gerlosstrasse. The short toboggan run at Finkenhof in Wald is partially illuminated in the evening and child-friendly. At around 500 m in length and with a slight descent, it is perfect for children. Moonlight tobogganing is organised each Wednesday, with the possibility to enjoy a drink afterwards.
