Zip down the mountain on the Tschentenalp on your toboggan – an experience that guarantees unlimited tobogganing fun for young and old.

 

The chairlift will take tobogganers to the starting point of the popular toboggan run in just three and a half minutes – which is perfect for both relaxed tobogganing and competitive sledding. Every Wednesday and Saturday evening there is also night tobogganing and, by prior arrangement, the ride down can also be enjoyed in combination with a fondue party. A bus runs back to the village of Adelboden from the destination.

 

There are three further toboggan runs (total of 14 km) in the Tschentenalp Tobogganing Park (Möser Tschentenalp chairlift).

Author’s recommendation

Don't worry if you don't happen to have a toboggan with you, they can be hired from the GUB top station.
