Tobogganing and mountain hut magic


Kids love it, adults even more! Stroll through snowy winter landscapes to the Wiesenhof in Mayrhofen or the Tristenbachalm in the romantic Floitental Valley in Ginzling.

Once there, you can reward yourself with a warming "Jagatee" (hunter's tea with wine, schnapps and rum!) or a tasty snack before whizzing back down to the valley down the toboggan run! The mountain huts have sleds you can borrow.
